Lance’s interest in comedy dates back to his teenage years. While attending Lindblom High School in his hometown of Chicago, he formed his own comedy group named Mary Wong which was so popular that toured the various campuses. Apart from this, Lance Crouther performed solo as a stand-up comedian, touring Chicago’s clubs and bars as well as colleges. These ventures provided the basis for his net worth.

In order to pursue his comedy career full time, Crouther transferred to Los Angeles, California where he began appearing in comedies and writing TV pilot episodes for various shows. Some of his first acting engagements included a side role in one episode of “Lifestories” TV series, followed by several other appearances in movies such as “Talkin’ Dirty After Dark” (1991), “Class Act” (1992), and “Fear of a Black Hat” and “CB4” both in 1993. However, some more recognition Crouther gained was when he began writing for “The Chris Rock Show” in 1998, plus he also co-produced 11 episodes and starred in nine. For his entire engagement he was honored with three nominations and one Primetime Emmy Award. It is certain that all these engagements made a positive impact on Lance Crouther’s net worth.

The real breakthrough in Lance Crouther’s acting career occurred in 2001, when he was cast for the title role of “Pootie Tang” – a comedy directed by Louis C.K. featuring also Chris Rock. In 2003, Lance served as the creator and co-executive producer of the “Wanda at Large” comedy TV series picturing the everyday life of comedian Wanda Sykes, while in 2004 he wrote and produced six episodes of its spin-off “Wanda Does It”. A year later, in 2005 Crouther was engaged as a consulting producer for “Everybody Hates Chris” as well as the “Barbershop” TV series. Doubtlessly, these ventures helped Lance Crouther to further increase the size of his net worth.

In 2006 he began writing for the fourth season of “Real Time with Bill Maher” TV talk show, and continued to write an entire season five in 2007. In 2008 Lance wrote 13 episodes of the “Frank TV” TV series, and in 2009 he wrote and starred in the “Good Hair” documentary comedy movie. Between 2009 and 2010, Crouther was the head writer of the “Lopez Tonight” comedy talk show, for which he wrote 105 episodes. Some of his more recent works include engagements on the “Last Comic Standing” TV series, and “Saturday Night Live” in 2014, as well as the writing of the special material for The 88th Annual Academy Awards ceremony and TV special in 2016. All these accomplishments have helped Lance Crouther to add a significant sum of money to his net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Lance Crouther has managed to keep it, well, personal – there are no relevant data or even rumours about his private life, neither family, romantic involvements nor affairs.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on his fame as Pootie Tang] People come up and yell. Most recently, I'm getting blinds in my apartment, and the blinds guy from Sears is measuring my window. A very nice brother. I tell him, ''Yeah, that's great,'' and he looks at me and says, ''Sepa-tai, sibi-ta, sepa-ta!'' And I think, oh God, even the blinds guy.
2[on Pootie Tang (2001)] On some level, you're like a silent movie character. It was fun, but I'm a writer. I like to say funny stuff in English.
3[on Pootie Tang (2001)] I was completely out of the loop on all this movie stuff. When somebody walked in and said Paramount and MTV were considering doing a Pootie Tang movie, I was like, you've got to be kidding. But I never thought we'd do the sketch more than once on the show in the first place. I guess I'm just worried about being famous only as Pootie Tang. My goal has always been to be a performer/writer, whereas here I'm primarily an actor. I want to be able to do stuff with me talking and not have people saying, ''No, we want you to speak the Pootie way!''
4[on Pootie Tang's costume] Oh no, I don't dress like that. I'm all about shirts and shorts. When I first had to do it on the show it was rough, but when I got over it I was pretty much over it. You just hold up the clothes and go, oh God, I've got to do this. But I did get some gasoline and some matches in case anyone tried to ship that stuff to me.
