Writer, producer, and director Larry Charles has a net worth of $85 million, in addition to being a big creative force behind some of the most beloved comedies of the last 20 years, both on the big screen and on TV. Even though he's largely a behind the scenes talent, his net worth shows that there's something about Larry Charles that lots of people just like. His career in show business began as a writer on the short lived sketch comedy show Fridays, where he met and fostered a working relationship with comedian Larry David, who would go on to create the mega-popular sitcom Seinfeld, several episodes of which would be written by Charles. Charles had a very strong impact on Seinfeld, writing many of the show's darker or more violent episodes.
He was also instrumental in developing the persona of Kramer, who eventually became the most popular character on the show. Since Seinfeld, Charles has branched out into directing, sitting behind the camera for several movies that blend the comedy and documentary formats, such as Borat and Bruno starring Sacha Baron Cohen, and Religulous starring Bill Maher. His next project is set to be The Dictator, a more conventionally scripted comedy also starring Cohen.
