That's not that much. If you think about it he's quite famous and popular. And most of those money will come to the company anyway. It's known that top MCs/comedians are getting ridiculous amount of money just for appearance and actors are on another level.

He probably only gets a small portion of that so I hope they are not too harsh on him.
