“No women,” the comedian wrote on Twitter Thursday, with a graphic showing the top 10.
Jerry Seinfeld returned to the top at $57.5 million (including $30 million from standup), followed closely by Kevin Hart ($57.5 million). Dave Chappelle ($35 million), Chris Rock ($30 million), Ricky Gervais ($25 million), Gabriel Iglesias ($20.5 million), Terry Fator ($18 million), Jim Gaffigan ($17.5 million), Jeff Dunham ($16.5 million) and Sebastian Maniscalco ($15 million) round out the list, which covers the year that ended June 1, 2018.
Amy Schumer made the list the previous year, helped by touring and a Netflix special, but did not make the minimum $15 million cutoff this time around, Forbes noted.
Some people on Twitter shared Griffin’s dissatisfaction, including those who wrote that talk show host Ellen DeGeneres should qualify for Forbes’ list.
Griffin, the former star of “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” resumed touring in 2018 after dealing with the fallout of her holding up a severed fake head of Donald Trump in a photo shoot.
And not one of these men has ever made me laugh. This list can fuck off.

This list is wrong. No way Ellen Degeneres shouldn’t be on this list. No offense to the last guy, but I’ve never even heard of him.

Most of these dudes aren’t even funny including Seinfeld

I don’t know who three of those guys are.
I know there are at least five female comedians worthy of that high a paycheck, if men are. You’re on that list, Kathy.
