(Taylor Media Services) The leading financial publication Forbes was out last week with another one of those “top earners” list. This one focused on the nation’s richest comedians. Standing way atop the list was Jerry Seinfeld whose “Seinfeld” show re-runs, stand-up comedy performances and a lucrative deal with Microsoft brought him in $85 million during the last 12 months.

Meanwhile, second place went to Black comedian Chris Rock whose movie deals and stand-up comedy engagements earned him $42 million. There were no other African Americans in the top ten. Other comedians on the list included Dane Cook, Russell Peters, Larry the Cable Guy, George Lopez, Jeff Foxworthy, Howie Mandel and Terry Fator.
