Emmy award-winning comedian, Tiffany Haddish, has had it pretty rough. Growing up in foster care, experiencing, poverty and homelessness, and finally getting her big break at the age of 37, has made Haddish a very grateful woman to be able to live the life she has now. In the last few years, Haddish has branched out as a comedian. She wrote a book, appeared in films, TV shows, music videos, and even a video game.
Fame is relatively new to her, so she often doesn’t behave like a celebrity. She has made headlines for wearing the same dress at multiple public award shows and can be seen switching into her back-up slippers when her high heels get too uncomfortable at industry events. Maybe her well-deserved net worth of $6 million hasn’t sunk in yet.
Although he worked as a fashion model for a period of time, Sacha is mostly known for portraying several very funny fictional characters, like Ali G, Bruno, and Borat. Over the course of his career thus far, he has won quite a few MTV Movie Awards, a Golden Globe, and more.
Mel Brooks began his career by doing stand-up for resorts in the Catskills, during his high school years. We admire him for many reasons, one of them being that he served in the military during World War II. After wrapping up his military career, he returned to the comedy scene. This time as a writer. He has been known to write, direct, and/or perform in hit comedies such as The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs, and more.
All of his hard work has paid off, seeing as he has won many awards, such as an Emmy, a Tony, a Grammy, and an Oscar. This comedian’s net worth is $100 million.
While working several jobs in the media and music industry, Gervais developed quite a few connections, which would lead him to get himself on television during the ’90s. Fast forward to 2001, when Ricky finally got his big break with The Office.
This popular show had 9 seasons and 201 episodes. To date, he has earned over $100 million, which we assume has mostly come from The Office. He currently has three Golden Globes, two Emmy Awards, seven BAFTA Awards, and five British Comedy Awards under his belt. Well-earned for sure!
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.
