As if Kaley Cuoco is the second highest paid comedy actor! Who even watches The Big Bang Theory anymore?

The Game of Thrones actors are doing alright for themselves, all earning $500,000 per episode and holding positions five to nine on the list.


Here are the top 10 most highly paid comedy actors:


The Simpsons cast are doing pretty damn well.

If that’s what Jonah Hill is getting just for that show, imagine his total income from all the other hilarious shit he does.

This is how much they’re packing on your favourite drama shows…


Kevin Spacey obviously deserves every penny, the legend.

The annual wages of these reality show stars and TV hosts are insane! (spoiler, Judge Judy is killing it).


I always get confused between the two American Jimmys, and now they have the same wage too. It’s like they’re trying to confuse me.
