Having made his way to the top, Jordan Peele's net worth is estimated to be $50 million, and the amount doesn't really come off as a surprise since he has had such an extensive career, directing, producing, and acting in films.
Jordan Peele was born in New York City on February 21, 1979, to mother, Lucinda Williams, and father, Hayward Peele. Raised by a single mother, the actor attended a computer school in Manhattan. After finding his true calling, Peele dropped out to form a comedy duo with Rebecca Drysdale, his college roommate, and future work-friend. Married to Chelsea Peretti, Jordan is also the father of Beaumont Gino Peele.
Net Worth and Sources of Income
The first African American to win the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, Jordan Peele's net worth is estimated to be $50 million. He has accumulated this colossal income from his prolific career as a director, actor, and producer.
Gathering international prominence from his directorial debut, Get Out, Jordan Peele had everyone's jaw dropped. The film that helped him make a name for himself as a director, raking in multi-million dollar deals, was written, produced, and directed on a mere $4.5 million budget. Nevertheless, the film blew up so terrifically, it pulled in a massive $255 million worldwide in box office collection.
Some of Jordan's other directorial hits include The Last O.G, MADtv, Us starring Lupita Nyong'o, and the Black Panther actor, Winston Duke.
Later on, Comedy Central interested Peele into starting his own series, which led him to initiate Key and Peele with Rebecca Drysdale. The show lasted for 55 episodes, and the impeccable comedic implementation in that series as well as other films has led him to significant success and bumped up Jordan Peele's net worth a great deal.
Along with Key and Peele, Peele has also had many other flicks on his slate, including American Dad! Keanu, and Netflix’s hilariously raunchy Big Mouth, all of which were critically acclaimed
