Net Worth: $500 Thousand
Leo Anthony Gallagher is an American prop comic and comedian who has an estimated net worth of $500,000. Gallagher acquired his total wealth via sixteen comedy shows that were aired by Showtime Cable TV Network.
He was born in North Carolina but he grew up in Florida. After completing college, Gallagher started working as a musician and comedian for Jim Stafford. The duo traveled to California where Gallagher decided to perform by himself. He thus started visiting the Ice House and The Comedy Store to find performance slots. When he approached The Tonight Show, he was refused, not once but several times as show host Johnny Carson was not very fond of prop comedy. However, Gallagher did make a number of appearances on the show in Carson’s absence when other guests were hosting the show.
Gallagher is remembered as one of the best American comedians from the 80s. Though he performed only fourteen comedy specials for Showtime, each episode has been broadcast innumerable times, especially on Comedy Central.
