In the wake of comments by actress and comedienne Mo’Nique over pay inequality with Netflix, comedy fans are split. On one hand, we all love Mo’Nique and want her to be treated fairly when it comes to pay and her belief that $500,000 is too low a price for an hour of her time compared to other acts.

With this simple question in mind, rolling out looked at the number of social media followers these comedians have on popular platforms.
