Jordan Peele Net Worth $2 Million

As a comedian, Jordan Peele started his career with the improvisational comedy groups and enterprises “Boom Chicago” and “Second City”. The former was founded in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and the latter in Chicago. Both contributed considerable incomes to Jordan Peele’s net worth. What is important is that in “Boom Chicago” Jordan Peele performed some musical duets along with the famous American singer and actress Nicole Ari Parker. In “Boom Chicago”, Jordan performed as “Danish Supermodel Ute”. Peele was also a host of “MADtv”`s Comedy Weekend which took place in 2002. This definitely lead to Jordan earning a great amount of money and so to increasing his net worth.

For some time, Jordan appeared on a weekly comedy audio podcast “Comedy Bang! Bang!”, which first went to air on May 1, 2009, and which is hosted by Scott Aukerman, another famous comedian.

“MADtv” was very successful because of talented actors. Jordan Peele managed to perfectly impersonate such known personas as Barack Obama, Ja Rule, Morgan Freeman and Justin Guarini. “MADtv” was also the place where Jordan met his future professional comedy partner Keegan-Michael Key.

Jordan Peele’s net worth has been boosted by many other television appearances. Jordan performed in “Chocolate News” (2008) wherein he had a recurring role. Jordan was also a star of “Reno 911!” (2009), the American comedy television series “Childrens Hospital” (2010 – 2013) created and directed by Rob Corddry, “Love Bites” (2011), “The Mindy Project” (2013), “Modern Family” (2013), “Bob`s Burgers” (2013), “Fargo” (2014) and “Drunk History” (2014). “Childrens Hospital” received two Emmy Awards.

During his successful career, Jordan Peele has also starred in several movies, including “Little Fockers” (2010) and “Twisted Fortune” (2007), plus in “Wanderlust” (2012) along with Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd and Kathryn Hahn. Jordan is very likely to  increase his net worth with voicing “Captain Underpants”, an adaption of the children`s novel series upcoming in 2017.

When “Saturday Night Live” was looking for somebody to play the character of Barack Obama, Peele`s position was discussed. However, Jordan decided to remain on “MADtv”, but Peele actually left “MADtv” at the end of its 13th season.

For his song “Sad Fitty Cent”, Jordan was nominated for an Emmy Award. It was a musical parody about 50 Cent and Kanye West. Peele wrote the lyrics and co-composed the music. In 2014, Peele won an American Comedy Award for Alternative Comedy Series.

In his personal life, Jordan has been dating actress Chelsea Peretti since 2013.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1He and comedy partner Keegan-Michael Key made cameos as 'gangstas' in the music video for 'Weird Al' Yankovic's "White & Nerdy".
2As a child, Jordan Peele appeared on a March 1994 ABC News special called "President Clinton Answering Children's Questions." The question he asked President Clinton, "Um, yeah, I was just wondering, how can you help the families where there's a mom, and she's taking care of a kid or kids, and the father isn't willing or isn't able to pay child support?," was inspired by his own family's situation.
3Along with Keegan-Michael Key, one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World. [April 2014].
4Both he and partner Keegan-Michael Key were dramatically featured in a series of comic-photo examples of fictional employees demonstrating "The Saintly Way to Succeed" in a cover story and lengthy article with that title in the March 31, 2013 issue of The New York Magazine.
5His father is African-American and his mother is Caucasian.
6He auditioned by playing Barack Obama for Saturday Night Live (1975) and was offered to become a feature player but when the Writer's Strike came to pass in 2008, he found out that MADtv (1995) would be continuing and lost the part and the opportunity to be on "SNL". "SNL" cast member Fred Armisen plays Obama on that show and Peele now gets to write and perform his own Obama sketches on Key and Peele (2012).


Quotes

#Quote
1[2013] I no longer answer to [the name] Key.
2Keegan and I go day to day: One day we're like in an almost racial utopia, and one day that feels like we're living in the 1950s.
3[on Key and Peele (2012)] I love dishing it out to everybody, and I love doing that on the show. But Keegan and I are usually perceived as African-American, and those characters are our bread and butter. Yes, we make fun of a lot of black people, but we make fun of a wide variety of black people because we don't like this idea that black people are a monolith, that there's only one type of black people.
4[on being biracial] Growing up, until really last year, I don't know that I would have readily brought up my white mother to anyone. It was not something I'm embarrassed by, but to announce that was synonymous to some black people to saying, 'I think I'm better than you.' This whole thing has felt almost like a coming out as biracial - saying this is a thing, we exist, and this is a future.
5[Barack Obama] is the best thing ever to happen to black nerds. Up until Obama, it was basically Urkel and the black guy from Revenge of the Nerds - Lamar. Other than that, we had no role models. So he made us cool.
