Jerry Seinfeld net worth: Jerry Seinfeld is an American comedian and TV star who has a net worth of $870 million. Jerry Seinfeld spent almost 15 years grinding out a career as a stand-up comedian before hitting it big in TV. He was a successful comic, the kind that regularly appeared on the Tonight Show and David Letterman. It's true that the nine years he spent writing and staring along with co-creator Larry David and starring in his own television series Seinfeld was no cake walk. It takes hard work to create the most successful television show of all time. Of course the last ten years of family life and semi-retirement have been busy, and not always relaxing.
Yes, the hilarious Mr. Seinfeld has built quite the piggy bank. While much of his income has come from his eponymous show and its years of lucrative syndication, Jerry has also made millions as a bestselling author and public speaker. His endorsement deals have also hit gold most notably when he was paid $10 million to make a handful of ads for Microsoft in 2008.
It took some work, but Jerry has also been successful in his private life. After dating a 17 year-old girl while he was in his late 30s, Jerry broke up a newlywed couple in the late 1990s so he could marry the lovely Jessica Sklar. The pair have been married for ten years and have three children. Together they share a $50 million estate in East Hampton, a Manhattan apartment overlooking Central Park and a home in Telluride, Colorado. When he's not making his kids laugh, Jerry spends his free time tending a serious love of cars. He is one of the largest collectors of Porsches in the world. He owns 46, including a $700,000 Porsche 959. Jerry's first attempt at returning to television was the short lived NBC reality show "Marriage Ref". On the show, married couples presented real-life disputes to a panel of celebrities, comedians and sports stars, who then decide who's right and who's wrong.
