Steve Coogan Net Worth
Steve Coogan Net Worth: Steve Coogan is an English actor, farceur, writer, impressionist and producer who has a net worth of $12 million. Steve Coogan has earned his net worth through his writing, producing and acting in film and TV. Born Stephen John "Steve" Coogan on October 14, 1965, in Middleton, Lancashire, he made a name for himself as a comedic star both in his native England and internationally. Raised by a working-class family, Coogan first started to flaunt his talent for comedy in his teens, mainly on the standup scene. Thus, he got noticed by TV casting agents who soon let him play various comedic bit parts in network shows. His breakthrough came with the voice work on the long-running puppet show, Spitting Image, which was a weekly satirical review that took aim at Margaret Thatcher, Michael Jackson and Ronald Reagan, among others. Once his talents were unveiled, he landed a radio spot, where he made an even bigger splash on the comedy show, On the Hour. There, he created his most popular and most developed character, Alan Partridge, who was yet to be seen on numerous other comic shows. A socially awkward and politically incorrect regional media personality as he was, Partridge was featured in two eponymous radio and TV shows Knowing Me, Knowing You…With Alan Partridge (received and nominated for five BAFTAs), as well as in 1994's BBC 2 news satire The Day Today. Throughout the 90's, Steve Coogan had developed many other comic characters, taking them all on the road for a wildly successful standup tour at the end of the decade. However, it was his appearances in films like 24 Hour Party People (2002), Night at the Museum (2006) and Tropic Thunder (2008), that earned him fame outside the UK. Ever since, he has been regarded as one of the greatest comedic talents who aptly masked his true self, be it through physical appearance, exaggerated personality or dead-on impression.
