Forbes magazine has named Jerry Seinfeld the highest-earning comedian for the period of June 2012 to June 2013.

That’s right, his hit sitcom “about nothing” has been off the air for 15 years, but Seinfeld is still Hollywood’s richest comedian, a position he has held on the Forbes list for 3 years running.

In the aforementioned date range, Seinfeld earned an estimated $32 million from more than 70 concerts ($27 m), combined with royalties from ‘Seinfeld’ reruns ($5 m).

The other 9 comedians on the list aren’t doing too bad either. Ventriloquist, Terry Fator, lands the second place spot with $24 million in earning, Russell Peters is in third with $21 million, Jeff Dunham grabs fourth place with $19 million, and Louis C.K sits at fifth with $16 million.

The remaining 5 spots go to Kevin Hart ($14 m.), Larry the Cable Guy ($13 m.), George Lopez ($12 m.), and Daniel Tosh and Gabriel Iglesias who tied at $11 m.
