Box Office Insider: The 30 Top-Grossing Comedy Tours by the Numbers
Pollstar (11/16/23) Allen, Bob
Box-office tallies from the 30 highest-grossing comedy tours topped the half-billion-dollar mark from shows performed at venues around the globe between Oct. 16, 2022 through Oct. 15 of this year. Topping the list is Kevin Hart with a worldwide gross of $68.3 million — three times more than his gross recorded on the previous year’s top comedy tour chart. Bert Kreischer was No. 2 overall based on 87 performances of his "Tops Off" world tour that racked up ticket sales of $33.4 million. In third place was Dave Chappelle’s $33.4 million gross as a solo headliner at 25 performances in North America and Oceania. Chappelle is the only comedian to be on the chart twice, as he also ranks eighth based on a series of co-headlining arena dates with Chris Rock in December 2022 and January 2023. Rounding out the top five are Jerry Seinfeld and Jo Koy. Male comedians dominated the chart, holding 26 of the 30 ranked positions.
