Forbes magazine has released its list of highest-paid stand-up comedians of 2019 and Trevor Noah
made the top five.
The Daily Show host earned a massive $28 million (around R432 million) between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019.
He is in fourth place behind Jim Gaffigan, Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin Hart
Kevin is sitting pretty in the top spot with earnings of $59 million (over R900 million).
According to Forbes, Trevor earned most of his money from his international stand-up shows.
“Despite the demands of hosting a late-night show, Noah made more than 70 stops across the world and had his second Netflix special last fall,” the publication said on its website.
Trevor has toured the UK, Australia, the United Arab Emirates and several parts of America in the past year.
The 35-year-old’s upcoming Loud & Clear Tour dates include stops in Singapore and Japan.
Trevor has venues booked until April 2020!
It should come as no surprise that he is rolling in the dough.
Reports surfaced earlier this year that the comedian bought an R280 million house in Los Angeles.
The mansion has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a custom saltwater aquarium, home theatre, maid’s quarters and an infinity pool.
While Trevor did not confirm or deny the rumours, his close pal Sizwe Dhlomo was seen chilling in the same infinity pool pictured on a real estate agency website.
Trevor made headlines in 2017 for another big purchase.
He allegedly bought a penthouse in Manhattan, New York, worth R130 million.
