Amy Schumer Is the First Women to Land on Forbes' Highest-Paid Comedians List – See How Much She Made
Amy Schumer pulled in an impressive $17 million in the past year
Amy Schumer is officially the queen of comedy.
The actress and stand-up comic, 35, has nabbed the No. 4 spot on Forbes‘ annual ranking of highest-paid comedians – making her the first women to ever crack the list.
Schumer pulled in an impressive $17 million in the past year thanks to her wildly successful stand-up tour (which also made her the female comedian to headline at Madison Square Garden), her Emmy-nominated sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer, her film Trainwreck and, most recently, her multi-million dollar book advance for The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.

Combined, the world’s 10 highest-paid comedians made $233.5 million.
And while this marks a pivotal moment in Schumer’s career, she’s also had a successful year personally, as well. The actress has been dating her boyfriend Ben Hanisch since last summer.
The happy couple were recently spotted at a New York Mets game, where they were seen hanging out with fellow list-maker Seinfeld.
