As a cast member and writer of Saturday Night Live, he receives a salary of $25,000 for every episode. Considering he appears in 21 episodes throughout the year, he earns $525,000 for every season of the show.

The comedian initially joined as a reporter and copy editor at Staten Island Advance. He then sent a writing packet to Saturday Night Live that earned him a writing position in 2005.

Jost was the show’s writing supervisor from 2009 to 2012 and the co-head writer from 2012 to 2015. He even performed as a stand-up comedian and appeared on other popular shows.

Following the 2013 season, Lorne Michaels asked Jost if he was interested in doing the Weekend Update feature because Seth Meyers was leaving to host “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Jost accepted and began doing the Weekend Update feature in the next season.

He has stated that he draws from the work of Norm Macdonald and Tina Fey for his Weekend Update material and the comedic tone. He also wrote an episode for Seth Meyer’s show as well as an episode of the television series “Funny as Hell.”

Although he mainly does the Weekend Update features, he occasionally appears in other sketches. He portrayed John Kasich in a sketch of the Republican primary debates for the 2016 presidential election cycle, and for the 2020 democratic primary debates, he portrayed Pete Buttigieg who he had lived with while they both attended Harvard.

Peter “Pete” Davidson is an American comedian and actor from New York who has a net worth of $6 million. Davidson is a cast member on Saturday Night Live. He has also appeared on the MTV shows Guy Code, Wild ‘n Out, and Philosophy.

He has performed stand-up comedy on Adam DeVine’s House Party, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Comedy Underground with Dave Attell, and guest-starred in Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

He is also famous for dating many famous women, notably Ariana Grande.

Before doing standup, Davidson made on-screen appearances for MTV. He appeared on MTV comedy series Failosophy, PDA and Moms and Guy Code. This is where he was first able to display his vibrant character and sense of humor on television.

Davidson’s career took off when he landed a spot on Saturday Night Live’s cast. He became the youngest cast member ever and his debut garnered great reviews from critics. This was largely due to a very funny skit with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson where they awkwardly ended up in the “69” sex position.

Adding to Davidson’s fame, in 2015 he participated in Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber and held his own with the likes of well-established comedians such as Will Ferrel, Hannibal Burres, Chris D’Elia, and others.

As years went on, Davidson became a fan favorite on SNL and is now one of the highest-paid cast members. His fame from the show allowed him to gain more attention from the film industry and he was able to star and produce a plethora of movies.

Trevor Noah Net Worth

Trevor Noah is a South African comedian, actor, television host, and radio DJ who has a net worth of $100 million. He’s an Emmy award winner, Grammy host, one of the top-earning comedians in the world and probably one of the busiest people in Hollywood. After making a name for himself on the international stand-up comedy circuit, Noah made his big break in America when he was hired to replace Jon Stewart as the host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”

Noah got his start as a contributor on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” in 2014. He received his big break when he was hired to replace Stewart as the host of “The Daily Show” in 2015. Although Stewart had earned upward of $25 million per year in host’s seat, Noah’s salary was a “mere” $5 to $8 million, according to Cosmopolitan.

That all changed in September 2017, when Noah signed a contract extension with Viacom, which owns Comedy Central, for a reported $16 million annual salary. His current net worth is estimated to be $100 million.

Before Noah came to the US, he was famous in his home country for his stand-up comedy (and caused his fair share of controversies, too). And although he was unknown by American audiences at first, he soon achieved fame in his new home too: according to Billboard’s Boxscore, he made more than US$14 million from 2013 to 2018, and US$5 million from touring in 2018 alone.

Noah’s bestselling memoir, Born a Crime, was released in 2016 – and quickly caught the eye of filmmakers. He signed a deal with Paramount Players, with actress Lupita Nyong’o being cast to play the role of his mother, Patricia. Variety reported that the book alone was a seven-figure deal. The memoir tells the story of how Noah, whose mum is black and dad is Swiss-German, grew up during South Africa’s apartheid. His parents’ romance was considered a crime under a former law that forbade mixed-race relationships.

Noah continued to bring home the big bucks after he signed a deal with Netflix to air his Afraid of the Dark comedy special. According to Variety, the streaming service went on a comedy shopping spree to bolster its entertainment efforts, and artists could earn between US$10 million to US$20 million for the rights to their shows. One such recipient was Noah, and after the success of Afraid of the Dark, the comedian added Trevor Noah: The Son of Patricia to his Netflix cash cow.

Noah added “podcaster” to his already impressive resume with the release of On Second Thought, a podcast under the subscription service Luminary that features other big name hosts like Lena Dunham and Russell Brand.

Trevor also owns his own production company, Day Zero Productions, which recently partnered with Viacom and has several projects in the works, including a film adaptation “Born a Crime,” starring Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o. The production company is also set to create a film with Paramount Animation with script writers Jonathan Groff of ABC’s comedy TV series “Black-ish” and Jon Pollack of “Modern Family,” according to Variety.
