What is Dave Coulier's Net Worth?

Dave Coulier is an American stand-up comedian who has a net worth of $5 million dollars. An actor, comedian, voice-over artist, and accomplished impressionist, Dave Coulier began his career as a stand-up comedian and became a household name after being cast on the hit sitcom, "Full House" in 1987. After "Full House", he has focused primarily on voice-over and hosting work.

Early Life

David Alan Coulier was born in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, on September 21, 1959. His last name was formerly spelled as Couwlier. He was born to parents David Sr. and Arlen Couwlier.

In third grade Dave met and became best friends with Mark Cendrowski. Dave, Mark and Mark's older brother made 8mm comedy movies. Years later Mark and his older bother performed as a comedy duo. As part of their act Mark would flirt with women in the front row, eventually telling them to "Cut… it… out." Dave happily admits that he stole what became his signature bit, "Cut… it… out," from Mark. Before you feel bad for Mark, after he graduated from the University of Michigan he followed Dave to Hollywood and eventually forged a career as a television director. Between 2007 and 2019, Mark directed 244 "The Big Bang Theory"'s 279 episodes.

He attended Notre Dame High School in Harper Woods, Michigan, where he played varsity ice hockey. It was while in high school that he first started performing stand-up comedy. He was known for impersonating school staff, including his principal, over the school's PA system. Coulier was briefly a student at the University of Michigan, but dropped out after just a year there to focus on his comedy career.


Coulier is known for his impressions and his extensive voice work for shows such as "Extreme Ghostbusters" (1997), "The Real Ghostbusters" (1987-1991), "Muppet Babies" (1986-1991), "Scooby and Scrappy-Doo" (1979), "The Jetsons" (1985), and "Rude Dog and the Dweebs" (1989),  among others. His comedy style is greatly centered around his ability to mimic celebrities and cartoon characters.

While he struggled to get his career off the ground in the early 1980s, Coulier actually stayed with Bob Saget, his future "Full House" co-star, on his couch. They had met through the Los Angeles comedy circuit and became good friends. In 1986, he landed what he thought was going to be his breakthrough job: he was cast as a player for "Saturday Night Live". However, casting changes made right before the season started resulted in him being left off the show. Supposedly it was because producers thought his comedy style was too similar to that of Dana Carvey, who was due to also join the show in 1986. However, the following year, Coulier landed the role of Joey Gladstone on the ABC sitcom "Full House". His co-stars in the immensely popular show included his good friend Bob Saget, John Stamos, Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Lori Loughlin, among others. Thanks to the show's popularity, Coulier was able to grow his profile and career. He stayed on the show from 1987 until it was cancelled in 1995.

Following the end of "Full House", Coulier continued to do his voice acting work. He voiced characters on shows like "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" (1995), "Freakazoid!" (1995), "The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries" (1995), "The Zeta Project" (2002), "Dexter's Laboratory" (2002), "Teen Titans" (2003), "Felix the Cat Saves Christmas" (2004), and "Robot Chicken" (2005-2019), to name a few. He has also continued to act on screen, such as in the television films "The Thirteenth Year" (1999), "The Even Stevens Movie" (2003), and "Shredderman Rules!" (2007); the shows "How I Met Your Mother" (2013), "Grandfathered" (2015), and "Dollface" (2019). He also reprised his role as Joey Gladstone on the show "Fuller House" (2016-2020), a show developed as a sequel to the original series "Full House".

Furthermore, Coulier has had several stints on reality television. From 2003 to 2004, he was a member of the cast of the reality television series "The Surreal Life", which aired on The WB. Then, in 2006, he appeared on three episodes of the Fox show "Skating with Celebrities". The show was the American version of the UK show "Dancing of Ice", and followed roughly the format of ABC's popular competition show "Dancing with the Stars", except with the show focused on ice skating instead of dancing. Coulier was paired with American former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan; the pair were the third pair to be eliminated from the show. He has also appeared on the sixth celebrity edition of the reality competition show "Worst Cooks in America" (2020). Coulier has also made a name for himself as a show host. He hosted the show "America's Funniest People" in 1990, followed by "World's Funniest Videos" in 1996, "America's Most Talented Kid" in 2003, and "The Grade School Game" in 2007. He continues to tour around the United States and Canada performing stand-up comedy. He has a solo comedy album, "Cut It Out".

Personal Life

Coulier and Morissette broke up not long before she started working on her album "Jagged Little Pill" (1995), and it is rumored that Morissette's song "You Oughta Know" is about Coulier. He started dating Melissa Bring, a photographer and producer, in 2005. They got married in 2014.

He is also an ice hockey fan, and is known to participate in charity events hosted by the team the Detroit Red Wings. His other favorite professional sports team is the baseball team the Detroit Tigers.
