Amy Schumer First Woman On Forbes “Highest-Paid Comedians” List

Amy Schumer has made history by being the first woman ever to land on Forbes annual list of the highest paid stand up comedians.

Schumer is 4th on the list after earning $17 million in the past year, thanks to her successful stand up tour, her Emmy-nominated television show Inside Amy Schemer, her film Trainwreck, as well as her advance for her first book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.  

This past year, Schumer also became the first comedian to headline a performance at Madison Square Garden.

Kevin Hart landed the top spot this year, raking in $87.5 million.  He’s the first comedian to appear at the head of the pack other than Jerry Seinfeld since 2006.

The top ten highest-paid comedians made a combined $233.5 million.
