Net Worth: $3 Million
The Manchester-born comedian has earned a tidy sum from touring and his TV appearances in recent years. Manford pocketed an estimated £1 million from his 2008/09 tour with his Live At The Manchester Apollo DVD bringing in another £250,000. Last July he took over as the host of BBC1′s The One Show for a “fraction” of previous host Adrian Chiles’ £1 million pay packet before resigning in November.
The former team captain on 8 Out Of 10 Cats is currently writing his autobiography following a rumoured £100,000 advance and also does the voiceover for the Churchill insurance TV adverts. However, despite his current 100-date Off On Tour We Go proving popular, Manford is planning on jumping off the comedy bandwagon and has said that his last gig will be in London in November 2011.
