Adam Sandler is Most Bankable Comedian

Adam Sandler is Most Bankable ComedianSubmit Comment
"South Park" was right. According to Forbes magazine, Adam Sandler was rated the top comedian by hundreds of entertainment industry professionals who were asked to rate 1,400 actors on critical financial metrics, such as their abilities to attract financing for films and drive box office revenues.

Sandler landed at 12th place on the star desirability list, behind action stars and dramatic specialists like Will Smith, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt and leading ladies such as Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie. Industry watchers may be surprised that no comedian cracked the top 10.

On the comedians list, Sandler was followed by Ferrell (Talladega Nights), Ben Stiller (Tropic Thunder) and Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty). Interestingly, no female comedians placed on the most bankable list.

And he gets paid $25 mil. a movie. That's better than a swift kick in the nuts with a frozen work boot!

Ben Stiller sucks ass. His father deserves to make that list more than he does.

Stiller isn't really that funny as a person...I liked "tropic thunder" very much but compared to jack black, robert downey, danny mcbride and nick nolte, stiller just wasn't cutting it...Now, Jerry Stiller , on the other hand is f*ckin' Aces!! Pound for pound, George Carlin is the funniest human being to have ever lived...RIP George.

"Stiller isn't really that funny as a person" Nope, he's quite funny actually. One unfunny role doesn't negate years of being hilarious. I had to lol at this sentence: "Interestingly, no female comedians placed on the most bankable list." How's that interesting? Female comedians are absolutely brutal. I'd have been f*cking shocked HAD they placed on the list.
