Stand up comedian and writer for television Anthony Jeselnik has a net worth of $1 million. While accumulating that net worth, he also has made a career for himself that many aspiring comedians would kill to have. A career in comedy is not exactly easy to come by, since the field is so crowded and competitive. Many comedians work their whole lives for meager earnings, never reaching the status of "public figure." Jeselnik has cleared this hurtle, and for that, he has much to be proud of. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jeselnik attended Tulane University where he received a bachelor's degree in English literature before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in comedy. Since then, Jezelnik has worked in a variety of television comedy shows, including Late Night With Conan O'Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Down and Dirty with Jim Norton and Last Call with Carson Daly. He has also found success on his own as a stand up comedian, having been featured as one of Comedy Central's "Breakout Comedians" in 2009. His most recent regular TV gig was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, on which he worked as a writer and often got to show off his chops in front of the camera as well, appearing in a variety of comedy sketches on the show.
