Joy Behar Net Worth: Joy Behar is an American comedian, writer, actress and co-host who has a net worth of $8 million. Joy Behar made her net worth through her success in film and TV. Born Josephina Victoria Occhiuto on October 7, 1942, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York, US, she has turned from a prolific comedienne into TV viewers' favorite as the co-host of the long-running TV chat show The View. Having earned her MA in English education from the SUNY at Stony Brook, young Behar briefly entered the professional workforce as a teacher. Since education wasn't her call, she went on to pursue career in the showbiz as a stand-up comic. By 1989, Behar's snappy sense of humor had secured her a steady fan base on the comedy circuit, and thus she got her own One Night Stand special on HBO. This performance along with small parts in Jon Cryer's comedy Hiding Out, Peter Falk's action comedy Cookie, as well as the short-lived sitcom Baby Boom, led the rising star's talent to be exposed to a wider audience. 1993 saw Behar's performance in Woody Allen's comedy Manhattan Murder Mystery, which was followed by subsequent appearances on TV talk shows like The Rosie O'Donnell Show, The Tony Danza Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Meanwhile, she was also a WABC radio talk show host, a feat that prepared her for the upcoming live-television-show host position on The View. When The View debuted in 1997, Behar only served as Barbara Walters replacement, but it didn't take long for Behar to become a regular member on the show, expanding the panel from four to five women. It's true she has become audiences' darling with the View, but her presence on The Joy Behar Show (HLN, 2009- 2011) and Joy Behar: Say Anything! (Current TV, 2012 – ) is equally adored.
