Anthony Anderson’s Net Worth: How Much His Worth in 2022?
On August 15, 1970, Anthony Anderson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He grew up in Compton and graduated from Hollywood High School’s Performing Arts Magnet Class of 1988 and Howard University, where he majored in Theater and Dance.
After a self-described “failure” at stand-up comedy, Anderson kept at it and met an actor named Guy Torry, who would be a key partner in the early part of his career.
Even though he has continued to work primarily in humor since his disastrous theatrical debut, Anderson has made it plain that he does not regard himself as a comedian in the classic sense but rather as an actor who frequently works in comedy.
A Career in Television Production
Black-ish is Anderson’s third sitcom, following All About the Andersons and The Bernie Mac Show, which he appeared on for the latter’s final season. Teddy Broadis, a character he played in the teen series Hang Time, is another of his notable television roles.
To name just a few, he’s appeared on sitcoms like Malcolm & Eddie, In The House, and Ally McBeal, among others. He had previously appeared in two other criminal dramas, K-Ville on Fox and The Shield on FX, before joining the cast of Law & Order, a long-running NBC series, in 2008.
With the ABC series Black-ish, which he joined in 2014, Anthony became one of the network’s most popular stars. He is also an Executive Producer on the show, which has increased his income tremendously. Andre “Dre” Johnson, Sr., Anderson’s character, has starred in two Black-ish spinoff series: Grown-ish, which debuted in 2018, and Mixed-ish, which debuted in 2019.
On the ABC network, Anderson is one of the network’s most prominent TV dads, which has kept him busy. In 2017 he hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live while Kimmel was on paternity leave, and in 2019 he appeared on both of ABC’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience specials. On Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, he made a comeback appearance in 2020.
In addition, he has voiced characters in three video games in the past. Def Jam: Icon and Scarface: The World Is Yours are only two of the video games in which he has provided the voice of Troy Dollar. Diablo III’s “Monster Voices” were credited to him in 2012.
A Career in the Movies
Many people are familiar with Anderson because of his TV credits, but the actor has also appeared in many films. As a child actor, he made his screen debut in the 1999 picture Liberty Heights alongside pal Guy Torry, who went on to star in the Eddie Murphy/Martin Lawrence feature Life.
He appeared in several high-profile films in the following years, including Martin Lawrence’s Big Momma’s House, Jim Carrey’s Me, Myself & Irene, and Ice Cube’s Barbershop. In Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4, he reprised his role as Mahalik, a recurring villain in the Scary Movie series.
Martin Scorsese cast Anderson in The Departed, and he went on to appear in Transformers, Wes Craven’s Scream 4, and Barbershop: The Next Cut in 2016 after Scary Movie 4. While his film career has slowed down after the success of Black-ish (he participated in Small Town Crime, The Star and Ferdinand, and Beats on Netflix), it hasn’t come to a halt: he also voiced the characters in the 2017 animated features The Star and Ferdinand.
A short video developed for the Responsibility Project and aired on the television show In The House in 2009 has Anderson’s directorial signature.
As of the fifth season, Anthony Anderson earns $400,000 every episode of Black-ish, including his actor fee, producer fee, and back-end profit revenue. He earned $100,000 per year before syndication was established in season one. Before taxes, that works out to $8.8 million a year throughout the 22 episodes.

Anderson, who has Type 2 Diabetes, has raised diabetes awareness. Alvina, his undergraduate sweetheart, was his bride. Both of the couple’s children, Kyra and Nathan, have already launched careers in acting, featuring in the Netflix series Richie Rich.
That’s not all: In 2011, he won $250,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association when he appeared on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire for the cause.

Car Collection of Anthony Anderson
For The Hollywood Reporter in 2016, Anderson wrote about one of his most significant purchases, a Mercedes Maybach that he shelled out more than $200,000. According to the article, he had no qualms about spending so much money on a car: “I was unfazed by my Maybach’s $198,000 retail price.
I’ve come a long way. I gave it to myself as a treat. When I return to my younger self, I believe they would be proud of my accomplishments and applaud me for my hard work.”
