Rodney Dangerfield Net Worth: Rodney Dangerfield was an American comedian and actor who had a net worth of $10 million. Jacob Rodney Cohen (November 22, 1921 – October 5, 2004), was born in Deer Park, New York, made a name for himself with his signature catchphrase "I don't get no respect!"and his monologues on that theme. Having entered the world of stand-up comedy in his teens, Dangerfield temporarily set his dreams aside a decade later only to give it another try at the age of 40. It was in the early 1960s that he embarked on the long road toward rehabilitating his career as an entertainer, while he was still working as a salesman during the day. Having spent years on the New York club circuit along with performances on "The Ed Sullivan Show" (CBS, 1948-1971), Dangerfield has finally managed to establish a hop with a club of his own. He called the shop Dangerfield's, a perfect name for a place where he would hone his act further and give dozens of future stand up stars their early break. Prominent names like Jim Carrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Roseanne Barr and Sam Kinison all owe their funny father-figure a tremendous debt of gratitude. At an age when most artists retire, Dangerfield reached the peak of his career as a member of the madcap cast of the hit comedy "Caddyshack" (1980). Suddenly a global star at the age of 60, he went on to record hit comedy albums, as well as he appeared in several of his own TV specials and starred in movies like "Caddyshack" (1980),"Easy Money" (1983) and "Back to School" (1986). Later on, he again shocked audiences with an incredible performance as a vile stepfather in Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers" (1994). With bulging eyes and a ridiculously tight collar, Dangerfield will be forever remembered as an exceptional but humble stand-up comic who only wanted a little respect and a good belly laugh.
