What is Steve Harvey’s net worth? We have some answers. Born Broderick Steven Harvey in West Virginia on January 17, 1957, Steve was the youngest of five children born to Eloise and Jesse Harvey.
Steve’s father, Jesse, was a coal miner who passed away back in 2000 from black lung disease. Steve graduated from Glenville High School in 1974, and then went to college at West Virginia University. Additionally, he had multiple jobs, including postman and insurance salesman.
Then he started comedy and everything changed. He performed his first stand-up gig in 1985, and he went from one small comedy club to the other for the next three years to develop his act.
In 1989, he made it to the finals of the Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search. Steve Harvey’s net worth began to grow. His career exploded, and in 1993 he took over as the host of Showtime at the Apollo. He was the host of the show for seven years.
While hosting the show, Harvey landed his own sitcom, The Steve Harvey Show, in 1996. It was one of the rare hits on the WB and was on the air until 2002. Not a bad run for your first sitcom. In the late ‘90s, Steve got together with Cedric the Entertainer, Bernie Mac and D.L. Hughley on The Kings of Comedy tour.
It was a massive success, and in 1999 it became the highest-grossing comedy tour ever, bringing in nearly $20 million. If Steve wasn’t already a superstar, he certainly was then. Steve Harvey’s net worth was in the millions by this time. His wealth was growing but it was nowhere near Beyonce, Chris Brown, Dre. Dre or Drake earnings.
After leaving Showtime at the Apollo, Steve started a daily talk radio show in 2000. The Steve Harvey Morning Show, which originally aired in just Los Angeles and Dallas, quickly grew and was eventually a nationally syndicated program.
After mastering comedy, TV and radio, Steve decided to write a book. The relationship advice book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, made Harvey a best-selling author, and it even inspired a feature film, Think Like a Man, in 2012.
In addition to all that, Steve also became the host of the popular game show, Family Feud in 2010, and landed his own TV talk show in 2012. It seems like he’s successful in everything he does. He has received some backlash for his archaic views on relationships and women in general, but that’s also one of the reasons why his audience loves him.
Currently, Steve Harvey’s net worth is at $160 million and that number has been increasing. In 2017, it was at $120 million, so in just two years it has jumped a cool $40 million. He is well in the same range as Conor McGregor, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift!
