Larry David Net Worth
Larry David net worth: Larry David is an American writer, producer, comedian and actor who has a net worth of $400 million. Larry David earned the vast majority of his net worth thanks to his association with the massively successful 1990s sitcom "Seinfeld". Larry was the co-creator and executive producer of Seinfeld which ran 180 episodes between 1989 and 1998. David is also the creator and executive producer of the HBO sitcom "Curb Your Enthusiasm" which has aired 80 episodes since 2000.
It goes without saying that was Larry paid handsomely for his writing, creating and producing duties during Seinfeld's 9 year run. Maybe not as much as Jerry's $1 million per episode but still a hefty sum. The real windfall came when Seinfeld was sold in to syndication to Columbia Tristar. The day Seinfeld was sold into syndication Larry earned an estimated $650 million. Add to that his prior personal fortune of $30 million plus all the money he has earned since starring in Curb and Larry is a very happy man. Another great annuity for David has been the periodic releases of Seinfeld DVD box sets. Every few years a new season is unleashed to a frenzied public with a huge marketing blitz. DVD sales can easily add another $40-50 million to Larry's bottom line. His enthusiasm may be curbed, but his earning potential is far from it. Unfortunately, Larry's net worth took a pretty large hit after his divorce from ex-wife Laurie in 2007. Larry reportedly coughed up 50% of his net worth at the time. That resulted in a $200-300 million settlement that included future syndication income from both Seinfeld and Curb.
