Ricky Gervais net worth: What is the comedian's full salary?

Currently considered as the richest British comedian, Ricky Gervais earned the majority of his net worth after creating the successful TV series ‘The Office’.

The British TV show was launched in 2001 and, four years later, it inspired an American version which became very popular in the United States, airing as many as 201 episodes across nine seasons.

According to Forbes, Gervais is in the 26th position of the list with the 100 richest comedians worldwide. Jerry Seinfeld tops the list followed by Matt Stone, Matt Groening, Trey Parker and Ellen DeGeneres.

What’s Ricky Gervais’ full salary?

The 60-year-old comedian is believed to be earning as much as 31.9m pounds per year. However, Gervais has recently stressed that he is not focused on either the money that he earns or the awards that he may win.

“I don’t care about viewing figure, more awards or more money at this stage,” Gervais told Sunday World in January.

“What I want to do is write humour and ask myself whether I can say that. I get an adrenaline rush when I write something that I think is funny and then decide whether I can say it and then decide I can.

“It’s not like I go on stage or write a TV script and say the first thing that comes into my head. I do worry about the things I do and say on stage or on TV, of course I do. I care what people think, of course I do.”
