    Who knows if these figures are accurate. Larry and Jerry are well deserving of the money. There will never be anything like Seinfeld again. Probably the most profitable show in the history of television based on the syndication deals. You want to slit your wrists when you see that Sandler is worth $290 million. They probably have underestimated his wealth.

    NEW YORK (MainStreet) – People say you're hilarious. You were the class clown in high school. Campus cut-up in college. Now you're known for wisecracks in the coffee room. Maybe you ought to monetize that monkey business. For motivation, consider Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, co-creators of the hit 1990s TV comedy "Seinfeld." They prove there's money in funny as the top two wealthiest comedians in America.

    Raking in piles of dough through syndication, the two men inked another reruns deal earlier this year for at least $400 million each. David is worth a reported $900 million, while Seinfeld makes-do with about $800 million in net worth, according to Wealth-X, a high net worth research provider. Since the sitcom ended its nine-year run in 1998, it has netted $3.1 billion in U.S. syndication fees.


    David added to his comedy cash as the creator and star of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," a critically acclaimed and commercially successful improvised comedy on HBO, to claim the top spot on the wealthiest comedians list.

    Here are the top five wealthiest comedians in America:
    Net worth (USD in millions)

    • Larry David - 900
    • Jerry Seinfeld - 800
    • David Letterman - 390
    • Bill Cosby - 360
    • Adam Sandler - 290
    In the long-running late-night duel between Leno and Letterman, Dave gets the nod in the net worth category. Letterman has a personal fortune of $390 million, while Wealth-X estimates Leno's net worth to be about $250 million.

    That's nothing, when Julia Louis-Dreyfus's dad dies, she'll be worth well over a billion.

    How........ Is that possible?
    I'm a big Larry David fan. I love that he's worth almost a billion and he carries himself like someone worth 50k

    He's only around $80 million according to a few websites. Not sure why it's so low, maybe the divorce and hush money to trannys.
