We all assume that celebrities, comedians included, are rich. But there are levels to this whole "rich" thing, and not all comedians are paid the same amounts. You may even find that, depending on your taste in comedy, it’s not even the funniest comedians who have the most money in the bank.

As you scan this list, keep in mind that, while you may not generally associate certain comedians with stand-up (as opposed to film or TV), nearly all have roots in stand-up comedy.
