Nick Kroll’s net worth is $13 million, but there’s more to it. He is also the heir of a $500 million empire! The New York City-born writer, comedian, and actor is the son of Jules and Lynn Kroll. His father, Jules, founded Kroll Inc., a corporate risk consulting and investigations firm that is worth well over $1 billion. He found a niche in comedy and decided to put his acting skills to work in the genre that America so loves! We wonder what his conservative parents must have thought about his choice of career…
His acting roles include appearing in Cavemen, Big Mouth, Hello Show, and The League. He also starred in his own show, The Kroll Show. He appeared in the films I Love You, Man, Dinner for Schmucks, Get Him to the Greek, and Date Night, among others. From the types of films you can clearly see that Kroll has quite a sense of humor!
Rebel Wilson | $16 million
Everyone loves Rebel Wilson. The actress and comedian appeared in various beloved films, such as Bridesmaids, What to Expect When You're Expecting, Pitch Perfect, How to Be Single, and Isn't It Romantic?. Most people don't know that Wilson actually started out in the field of Mathematics, and was very academic in high school. She once contracted malaria during a trip to South Africa and hallucinated herself as an Oscar-winning actress, which is what led her to pursue a career in acting. Now, that’s quite a story!
The Australian actress has been a leading activist on body positivity and weight loss. She also dated the popular British actor and comedian, Matt Lucas, in 2012. The couple ended up living together in West Hollywood until the end of their relationship, in 2015. Since then, Wilson has been mostly single and lives by herself in her multi-million dollar apartment, as you'd expect someone with a net worth of $16 million.
Sarah Silverman | $12 million
Sarah Silverman is one of the most divisive figures in comedy. With her jokes revolving around confrontational topics such as politics, and religion, the Jewish comedian has managed to agitate people in both left and right political circles. Silverman has also acted in various films, such as School of Rock, Wreck-It Ralph, and A Million Ways to Die in the West. The vegetarian comedian had to struggle her entire life with depression and decided she never wants to have kids, citing that ‘there are just too many kids with no parents’ as the reason why.
Silverman has dated the famous comedian and SNL writer, Dave Attell, and even had a thing with Jimmy Kimmel in 2002. She also dated actor Michael Sheen in the past but never got hitched. If she does decide to get married at some point, the lucky man by her side would probably love to know she is sitting on a $12 million net worth.
Donald Glover | $35 million
When God gave people talent, some were obviously standing at the front of the line and secretly loading extra into their pockets. Donald Glover is probably one of those people. After all, a $35 million net worth doesn't just happen to average people. His comedic chops were first recognized by Tina Fey, who hired him as one of the writers for her TV show 30 Rock.
He later became famous playing the part of Troy Barnes in the comedy show Community. Saying this wasn't his last on-screen appearance would be an understatement. Other than additional roles in film and TV, Glover has also made a name for himself as a musician, producer, director, and voice actor. All that accumulative talent ended up being translated into a $35 million net worth.
Marla Gibbs | $4 million
Best known for her role on The Jeffersons playing George Jefferson’s snarky maid Florence, Marla Gibbs broke into showbiz as a witty comedian full of sass and spunk. For her role on the CBS sitcom, she received five Emmy nominations. Gibbs is also a singer, writer, and television producer. Breaking into her acting career late in life, she was 44 when she joined the 1970s sitcom, she held onto her day job at United Airlines until 'The Jeffersons' became a hit TV show. Somehow we don't think that her day job would have resulted in a $4 million net worth.
Her role was so sensational it landed Gibbs her very own sitcom, in her very own apartment. Titled 227, after the show’s middle-class city apartment building address, 227 Lexington Place, the show ran from 1985 to 1990. Gibbs has won seven NAACP Image Awards. In 2017, she starred in two films, Lemon and Please Stand By. At 88, she’s going strong. Gibbs also owned a jazz club in South Central L.A. called Maria’s Memory Lane Jazz and Supper Club, up until 1999, and she’s released several albums as a solo artist.
