South African born comedian Trevor Noah makes the Forbes list as the 4th highest paid comedian in the world.

The 35-year-old reportedly earned the bulk of his $28 million ( R 430-million) income through stand-up.


“Despite the demands of hosting a late-night show, Noah made more than 70 stops across the world and had his second Netflix special last fall’, the magazine said.

Kevin Hart was the highest paid comedian on the list, earning R909-million, followed by Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Gaffigan. Amy Schumer is the only woman to make it on to the list.

Over the last year he has apparently made more than 70 stops across the world to perform and had his second Netflix special, Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia.

He is also still collecting coins from his 2016 book, Born a Crime, which is a bestseller.

The star is currently on a break from The Daily Show and has been put on vocal rest by doctors.

“Unfortunately, per doctor’s orders I am on vocal rest and won’t be able to host The Daily Show tonight. Luckily we’ve got a few days off so I’m gonna rest and get back to 100,” he revealed to fans on social media late last week.
