Steve Harvey is recognized by all, if not the most. Considering all this, his net worth exceeds his fame. Comedian Steve Harvey has a net worth of whooping $100 million. His salary is around $30 million which is pretty spectacular in its own accord.
Much like Johnny Steve Harvey has involved in many jobs, though all of them were the act of compulsion. Prior to his rise as a comedian, Steve worked as a mailman, carpet cleaner, insurance salesman and even a boxer.
Despite being a graduate and a good student he was unable to find any employment. As a result, he was unemployed for several years which forced him to take a different job for survival.
In the late 80s Steve started doing standup comedy and in 1990 he became the finalist in Second Annual Johnnie Walker National Comedy Search. Through his participation, he started gaining recognition.
This ultimately leads him to star as a host for Showtime at the Apollo. This led him to start his own comedy show The Steve Harvey Show which was very famous among the African-American community but failed to become popular with others.
Yet another of his milestone came from his role as a host in the highly popular game show The Family Feud. After becoming a host to various reality shows his next big thing was the 2015 Miss Universe pageant and of course, it was nothing to be pleased about.
So, it was 20th December 2015 and half of the world was watching the Miss Universe show and Steve Harvey did something that meme his entire life. Though nothing to be proud about, this comedy starred announced Ariadna Gutiérrez- Miss Columbia as the winner. But in fact, she was the runner-up and the winner was Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach.
His mistake would probably go down in history as one of the most memorable mistakes ever and make him one of the most popular celebrity meme fads after Michael Jackson and his popcorn. Well, he did apologize to Ariadna after the event and published an apology on Twitter but not before he became a sensation. Weird that he didn’t get any criticism for his wrong announcement.
His appearance and his performance as a comedian and a host have won him various awards and nomination including NCAAP awards for his comic role, Daytime Emmy among various other awards.
Talking about his personal life Steve is married to Marjorie Bridges who he married in 2007. Prior to Marjorie, he was married two times to Marcia Harvey who he married in 1980 and divorced in 1994 and Mary Shackelford who he married in 1996 before ultimately separating in 2005. Altogether Steve has seven children, three among whom are his stepchildren.
As a celebrity, he is very famous. He is very active in social media with more than 3.3 million followers on Twitter and 2.3 million followers on Instagram.
Currently, he is the host of the Family Feud, Celebrity Family Feud, and Steve Harvey. Considering his present status as an acclaimed personality one can easily assume that his net worth will grow even further.
