Wyatt and Billy got arrested. Billy shouts in the prison:

Parading without a permit? You gotta be kidding. Do you know who this is? This is Captain America. l'm Billy. We're headliners, baby. We played every fair in this part of the country. I mean, for top dollar too!

Is "too" necessary?

Yes, "too" is used for emphasis. Billy was not only famous and played in every fair, but was also paid well for it.
