As the week winds down why not educate yourself with some feel good news? You know, like comedian Jerry Seinfeld once again taking in the title of world's highest-paid comedian. Yes it's true, the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee lead reportedly dragged in an astounding $36 million this past year due to his internet fame, touring, that little 90s TV show, Seinfeld, and NBC's deal with Hulu.

Which means that taking on the politically correct culture on college campuses and losing money at his local lemonade stand didn't seem to hurt him.

Forbes reports that the legendary comedian brought in quite a few bucks from Seinfeld syndication alone, but perhaps even more so because his past show's rights were purchased by Hulu for $160 million earlier this year.

The second highest-paid comedian in the world is Kevin Hart, who brought in roughly $28.5 million. He was followed Terry Fator with $21.5 million, Jeff Dunham with $19 million, Russell Peters at $19 million, and Aziz Ansari with $9.5 million.

Poor Louis C.K. only earned $9 million. What a bummer...

In the end, it looks like the win goes to Seinfeld—once again.

The comedian recently finished up Season 6 of his acclaimed web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. He's currently gearing up for Season 7. Though he's apparently taking some time to appreciate how well his beloved New York Mets are doing.

 This one tonight. Game 2 NLCS!
