Sarah Silverman: What is the Comedian and Actress’ Net Worth?

We’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating: There’s a lot of money in show business. Big-time Hollywood movie directors are worth billions. Some game show hosts have net worths in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Heck, even the actors who star in annoying commercials are set for life. If you work in front of or behind a video camera, you’re probably doing OK. The same goes for comedian Sarah Silverman. Between her acting, writing, and stand up comedy specials, she’s amassed a nice fortune. Let’s take a look at Sarah Silverman’s net worth as well as her personal life.

Before we discuss her net worth, let’s look back at how she got started. Amazingly, one of her earliest gigs was also one of the most coveted in show business.

Her first credited acting credit came in the 1990 short Caeser’s Salad alongside several other comedians. Her second gig? Writing and acting on Saturday Night Live starting in 1993.

Silverman lasted just one season on SNL before being fired, but she redeemed herself when she hosted the show in 2014.

What has she been working on lately?

Since breaking into the business on Saturday Night Live, Sarah Silverman has barely stopped working.

She had bit parts in big movies such as 1998’s Bulworth and There’s Something About Mary. Silverman shared the screen with Gene Hackman, Sigourney Weaver, and Anne Bancroft with a large role in 2001’s Heartbreakers. Then came School of Rock in 2003, the big-screen version of Rent in 2005, and The Sarah Silverman Program on TV from 2007 to 2010.

She won a primtime Emmy Award in 2014 for her comedy special We Are Miracles, which was her second Emmy win.

Lately, she’s dipped her toes in the Disney waters. She voices Vanellope in the animated movie Wreck-It Ralph and the 2018 followup Ralph Breaks the Internet.

What is Sarah Silverman’s net worth?

Even though she doesn’t make the list of America’s richest comedians, Sarah Silverman still has a very hefty net worth. The fearless, funny, and talented Silverman has an estimated $12 million fortune, according to Celebrity Net Worth. That’s not quite what Jerry Seinfeld and the other stars earned from Seinfeld, money, but it’s enough to live comfortably if the show business work dries up.

You’ve probably heard of some of the people Sarah Silverman dated in the past. The New Hampshire native, who was born in 1970, had relationships with fellow comedians Dave Attell and Jimmy Kimmel.

Silverman and British actor Michael Sheen formed one of the long-term celebrity couples who never got married, but they broke up late in 2017. The reason? It’s complicated, but Donald Trump and Brexit were part of it. No matter who wins her heart next, don’t expect her to ever walk down the aisle. She’s said in the past she never wants to marry.
