Phyllis Diller net worth: Legendary comedienne Phyllis Diller had an estimated net worth of $15 million. To go along with her net worth, Phyllis Diller was also one of the most influential comedians to ever perform on stage. Her career in show business began in 1952, when the mother/housewife/advertising copywriter started appearing on Oakland radio station KROW. Later that year, she began to produce a TV special entitled Phyllis Dillis, the Homely Friendmaker. Unfortunately, this special has been lost, since the camera had no film as it was rolling! Diller's next big entertainment outing was on The Belfast Pop Club, a TV music show that combined dancing girls, records, so-called expert commentary, and lots of advertising for Belfast Root Beer (which now goes by the name of Mug Root Beer). Phyllis Diller died on August 20th, 2012 at the age of 95.
From these low-key beginnings, Diller's star continued to rise as she collaborated with such big stars as Bob Hope, Sammy Davis Jr., and Rowan and Martin on TV and in films. Phyllis Diller's career as a stand-up comedian (complete with her trademark laugh and long cigarette holder, even though Diller is a non-smoker) continues to serve as an inspiration to countless female comics, and she continues to make appearance on TV well into her 9th decade.
