Jerry Seinfeld’s Lucrative Career in Comedy

Seinfeld had gained success as a stand-up comic before he made the foray into the sitcom world, performing on a number of prestigious talk shows including “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” and “The Merv Griffin Show.”

In 1989, he co-created, wrote and starred on “Seinfeld,” which ran for nine years and nine seasons. By the show’s final season, Seinfeld was earning about $1 million per episode, Variety reported. He’s also made big money off syndication deals: Seinfeld made an estimated $400 million off reruns between 1995 and 2015, CNBC reported, and he will likely get a hefty cut of the profits from a recent Netflix deal to air the show for five years worth $500 million, Forbes reported.

Seinfeld also continues to make big money from stand-up comedy. He earned over $20 million from his most recent comedy tour, Forbes reported.
