Drew Carey net worth and salary: Drew Carey is an Ohio-born comedian, actor, writer and TV host who has a net worth of $165 million dollars. Drew Carey is most widely recognized for his role on "The Drew Carey Show", and as the host of "The Price is Right". He was born on May 23, 1958 in Cleveland, Ohio. Drew is also a photographer and a minority owner of the Seattle Sounders FC. His impressive net worth is the result of many years in comedy. In addition to his success in television comedy and in the world of game shows, Carey is also famous for his activism toward the cause of public libraries. He often donates time and money to keeping the libraries open and operational. Carey, in a somewhat counter intuitive move due to his interest in libraries, is also an outspoken member of the Libertarian party, which has called for limited government and lower taxes. But, in the eyes of most of the viewing public, he remains lovable old Drew, with his trademark spectacles and slightly nervous onscreen persona. And with his current gig at "The Price Is Right", it's a safe bet that he will remain a television fixture for many years to come.
