What Is Monica Padman’s Net Worth?

Monica Padman may not be a household name like her creative collaborators Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, but if the success of the podcast she co-hosts with Shepard, Armchair Expert, is any indication, that is soon to change.

This 31-year-old writer and aspiring actress moved to Hollywood after college and immediately began collaborating with some big names, meaning that there is nowhere to go but up for Padman.

As the daughter of immigrants, Padman has mentioned before that part of the reason her parents immigrated at all was to make sure she and her brother would have more opportunities.

Even so, we are guessing that they couldn’t have dreamed that their daughter would one day be a famous figure in Hollywood.

So who exactly is Padman, what is her podcast about, how did she get famous, and what is her net worth at this point?

The thing she is best known for by far is her weekly podcast with fellow actor Dax Shepard. As their website states, every week on Armchair Expert Padman and Shepard discuss the “messiness of being human” and the various ways that everyday life doesn’t always go according to plan.

On the show, Shepard and Padman invite celebrity guests to share their stories on numerous topics, offering listeners the opportunity to sit in on intimate conversations about what it means to be human.

Shepard’s wife Kristen Bell was actually their very first guest when the podcast launched back in February 2018 and since then the show has been gaining a ton of momentum.

Thanks in large part to their choice of guests, which includes Hollywood types like Judd Apatow and authors like Malcolm Gladwell, the podcast has earned a fairly devoted fan following, meaning that the opportunity for the podcast to grow even more is definitely there.

What else is Monica Padman famous for?

In addition to Armchair Expert, some may recognize Padman from her various acting roles.

One of her first roles was on the 2010 Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva, on which she played the role of Emma. Other acting gigs she is known for include appearances on the shows The Good Place, House of Lies, and HelLA, among others.

She also got to appear alongside Shepard as Becky in the 2017 film CHIPS and has been working as a producer on Bell’s show Momsplaining with Kristen Bell, for which she received an Emmy nomination.

Given how frequently Hollywood big-hitters Shepard and Bell collaborate with Padman, one might guess that any place she turns up in the future would likely be as a result of her long-time partnership with the two, though she is talented enough at acting that she may also catch a big break of her own in that department sooner over later.

Though her array of talents means she is surely poised to become even more famous in the near future, Padman has already amassed a lot of success in Hollywood.

Alongside that success has been a few decent paychecks which have left her net worth estimated to be about $500,000.

Sure, half a million may not seem like a ton of money by most Hollywood standards, but considering that Padman has often been more behind the scenes than in the spotlight, it’s still nothing to sneeze at.

Given how successful she’s been so far, you can also expect that number to skyrocket in the near future because things are definitely looking bright for Ms. Padman!
