Minnie Riperton’s daughter, Maya Rudolph, started her career as a singer in an alternative rock band called The Rentals. However, people quickly noticed her great comedic side and pushed her to be a comedian. Saturday Night Live was the obvious place for her to land eventually. Rudolph was only nine when her famous mom lost her life battle. But even though Minnie didn’t stay long enough to help her daughter find her way into the world, Maya has done a great job in both the music and film industry all by herself.
In addition to singing and acting, this gorgeous lady used to keep her credit score perfect by co-hosting a show and doing impressions of celebs on national TV. Maya may not have inherited that amazing soprano from her late mom, but with so many other talents and skills, she has climbed her way to a $10 million net worth.
Tom Green | $5 million
Tom Green was up to something good, and audiences found his magnetically absurd acting style irresistible in the 90s MTV series, The Tom Green Show. Audiences wanted to see more of Green and were happy when he followed up his MTV series with films such as Superstar, Road Trip, and Charlie’s Angels. The latter was where he met Drew Barrymore, who was married to him for about three seconds before they ended things, but let's not dwell on that, shall we?
He was set for bigger things until he co-wrote and starred in the movie Freddy Got Fingered, which viewers found tasteless and cliche-ridden. While Green disappeared for a long time after the Freddy fail, his career is still going strong as a musician, interviewer, and the host of Tom Green Live. He has a current net worth of $5 million.
Kelsey Grammer | $60 million
Kelsey Grammer is an actor and comedian best known for his character, Dr. Frasier Crane, on the sitcoms Cheers and later Frasier. When you play a certain character for 20 years, you get so used to it that it might be hard to play a different role. That is not the case with Kelsey Grammer and he has the $60 million net worth to attest to that.
Most are not aware of this, but Kelsey was a producer, director, writer, and voice actor on the animated sitcom, The Simpsons. He was also the voice of the character Sideshow Bob. He's won 5 Primetime Emmy's among his other awards.
Abby Elliott | $1.5 million
Luckily for her, Chris Elliott's daughter, Abby Elliott inherited her father's sense of humor. She too is a comedian and was a Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member from 2008-2012. Among her most hilarious impersonation were those of Kate Middleton, Khloé Kardashian, Meryl Streep, and Rachel Maddow.
Aside from comedy, Elliot also maintains a noteworthy acting career with roles in film and TV. One of her most memorable performances in the last few years was that of Brooke Von-Weber in The Odd Mom Out. She currently has a net worth of $1.5 million but we have a feeling this number is only going to get bigger. Hollywood usually tends to do that.
Damon Wayans Jr. | $35 million
Just like his father, Damon Wayans Jr. can make you laugh to tears in no time. Born in the family of entertainers, Damon Wayans Sr. first started off in the ‘80s as a stand-up comedian before he shifted his focus to acting, and then writing and producing. His son, Damon Wayans Jr., is an acclaimed actor, writer, and stand-up comedian in his own right, best-remembered for his role of Brad Williams in hit sitcom Happy Endings.
So yeah, both Jr. and Sr. have the same name, the same career, and the same look. Are we sure they aren't the same person? Anyway, while it will take Wayans Jr. lots of time and hard work before he has a portfolio or savings account to compare with his fathers’, we can all agree that Hollywood appreciates the good genes with a net worth of $35 million.
