How did Chris Rock build his net worth?
Comedian and actor Chris Rock built his wealth from a long career in TV and Movie.
He got his start in the 1980s doing stand-up comedy in New York and got his big break into TV in the 1990s by joining the cast of Saturday Night Live.
Thanks to Eddie Murphy, he got a small acting part in Beverly Hills Cop 2 as a Parking Valet, which got him into movies.
And as his career continued to prosper in the 2000's he was able to land more prominent acting roles in films such as "Head of State" with Bernie Mac, "What to Expect When You're Expecting," 'The Longest Yard," and "Grown Ups" 1 and 2 with wealthy funnymen Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and David Spade.
He also moved behind the camera to produce and direct TV shows and movies.
Plus, as big kids will remember, he lent his distinctive voice to the character Marty in the animated movie "Madagascar."
Chris Rock's profile surged after he was slapped by Will Smith after making a joke about his wife's hair during the 2022 Oscars.
My first year on 'SNL', I made $90,000 dollars. And I bought a red Corvette for $45,000 dollars. I'm thinking, 'I've got 45 grand left!' Taxes didn't even come into my equation. At the end of the first year of making 90 grand I was 25, 30 in the hole. We live in this baller, spend-money culture. ~Chris Rock
