Jeff Dunham is the No.1 comedian

The man succeeded in earning over $22 million last year and according to Forbes he is the no.1 comedian.

Besides, Dunham earns all his money from tours, DVDs and puppets sales.

On second place of the Forbes top earning comedian comes Dane Cook with $21 million thanks to Isolated Incident Global Thermo Comedy Tour.

Following Cook on this top is America’s Got Talent winner Terry Fator aka “human jukebox” with $20 million.

Next to Fator are Chelsea Handler and George Lopez on no.4 and 5.

According to Geof Wills, “To stay on top in this economy, you’ve got to work a lot harder. The ones who get hurt are the comedians who don’t realize that they have to adapt the environment they’re currently in.”
