Net Worth: $50 Million
Dan Whitney has an estimated net worth of $50 million. Whitney became a star after appearing on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour as his stereotypical “redneck” character Larry The Cable Guy. This character, along with his catch phrase “Git ‘er done,” is his claim to fame, and helped him land movie roles like Tow Mater in Pixar’s Cars. Movies, his own TV show on The History Channel, DVD sales and stand-up performances helped him earn $20 million between May 2010 and May 2011.
Arguably among the most popular stand-up comedians into the new millennium, Larry the Cable Guy was the freewheeling creation/alter ego of Daniel Lawrence Whitney, who created the crude, opinionated and proudly rural Southern persona in the early 1990s. Since then, Daniel/Larry has scaled the heights of the comedy field through the popular Blue Collar Comedy Tour and subsequent WB TV series, as well as a string of chart-topping comedy albums.
Whitney was born in Pawnee City, NE on Feb. 17, 1963 and raised in West Palm Beach, FL. While in his early twenties, he began experimenting with stand-up comedy at clubs in West Palm Beach, enjoying enough success to move into guest shots on radio programs throughout Florida, and later, in various major markets throughout the Southeastern states.
