Amy Schumer Is the Only Woman to Make Forbes' 2017 List of the World's Highest-Paid Comedians


Amy Schumer is in all-male company.

For the second consecutive year, the award-winning star remains the only female comedian on Forbes' annual ranking of the top ten highest-paid comedians in the world. In 2016, she became the first woman to ever make the list, coming in fourth with an estimated annual income of $17 million.


On Thursday, the magazine released this year's ranking and revealed that, while Schumer once again made the cut, she dropped one spot. However, she made $20 million more this year at $37.5 million.
The star is in quality company with Jerry Seinfeld leading the pack once again with $69 million while Chris Rock, Louis C.K., Dave Chappelle and Schumer trailed behind him with various eight figures a piece.


1. Jerry Seinfeld

After last topping the list in 2015, the longtime comedian is back in the number one slot with $69 million. 


2. Chris Rock

Last year's Oscars host is this year's runner up with $57 million. 


3. Louis C.K.

The funny man is up four spots from 2015 with $52 million


4. Dave Chappelle
      
The star raked in $13 million last year—less than half of the $47 million paycheck he earned this year.


5. Amy Schumer

Once again, the Emmy winner is the only woman on the list. She dropped one spot from last year, but made $20 million more this year. 

Meanwhile, the list welcomes newcomer Sebastian Maniscalco, who earned a spot for the first time at number ten with $15 million. Kevin Hartand Jim Gaffigan are among the famous names to round out the list. However, with the recurring lack of women, it begs the annual question—what gives?
