Tina Fey's Net Worth Is Higher Than You Might Think

Tina Fey has had a remarkable career, rising up through the comedic ranks to hold her own at the top. She's also used her clout to get political, taking aim at female Trump supporters. Throughout her career, she's made friends with many other comedic powerhouses, including Amy Poehler and Alec Baldwin.

Fey has accomplished so much throughout her reign in the comedy world. She began her journey in the Chicago comedy scene in the mid-1990s, according to the Chicago Tribune. She worked on Second City then Saturday Night Live. Fey went on to write Mean Girls then the NBC TV hit 30 Rock, followed by another NBC hit, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

In addition to these hits, Fey has worked on many other movies, cameos, and animation voice overs, according to the Chicago Tribune. But Fey hasn't stopped there. She's also worked on commercials for American Express and Allstate, in addition to writing a best-selling autobiography called Bossypants and the Broadway musical version of Mean Girls.

With all of this on Fey's resume, it's not a bit surprising to hear about the sumtotal of her whopping net worth.

Tina Fey made $500,000 an episode for '30 Rock'

As Tina Fey rose to success, she also set some records. According to The New Yorker, Fey became the first female to hold the title of head writer at Saturday Night Live. When Fey played Sarah Palin, people collectively lost their minds over how spot-on she was, not to mention the fact that they look like twins. The Guardian called her impersonations "uncanny."

With all of this skill, it may not be so surprising to hear that Fey's net worth sits at $75 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. According to the outlet, Fey was paid $500,000 per episode of 30 Rock. Her autobiography, Bossypants, was so successful that in 2011, her income from book sales and working as executive producer came in at $13 million.

Fey lives with her husband, Jeff Richmond, another member of Second City troupe, in New York City. Together they share two children. According to Celebrity Net Worth, in 2009 Fey and Richmond bought a $3.4 million apartment on the Upper West Side.
