His net worth couldn’t have been further away from that when he was growing up, though. In fact, Anderson was one of 11 kids and grew up “very poor,” something he spoke about often in his comedy specials. “We had to pick a lot of times what we were going to shut off: the lights or the gas. Usually, we’d shut off the lights cause my mom had a thousand candles she stole from the church,” he said in his special “Louie Anderson: Big Underwear.” He added, “We’d have a seance in the afternoon.”

Luckily for Anderson, his career took off after his TV debut on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” in 1984, in which he famously said, “I can’t stay long, I’m in between meals.” Since then, he has had several stand-up specials, notable roles in “Coming to America” and “Search Party,” hosted “Family Feud” for three years, then earned an Emmy award and two more nominations for his role in “Baskets,” per IMDb. Anderson’s other prospects undoubtedly added to his large net worth as well. The multi-hyphenate was also a “New York Times” bestselling author, created a podcast, and put on several shows in Las Vegas. Anderson’s story is a true tale of rags to riches.
