On the list of the 100 wealthiest comedians globally, Gervais comes in at number 26. The ranking is topped by Jerry Seinfeld, who is followed by Matt Stone, Trey Parker, Matt Groening, and Ellen DeGeneres.

It’s estimated that the 60-year-old comic makes up to 31.9 million pounds a year. However, Gervais has emphasised that he is not concerned about his income or potential accolades.
In January, Gervais said to Sunday World, “I don’t care about viewership statistics, more awards, or more money at this moment.
“I want to write humour, and I want to know if I can say that. When I compose something that I find humorous, consider if I can utter it, and then determine I can, I have an adrenaline rush.
