Charles Michael Levine, better known to the world as Chuck Lorre, was born in 1952, in New York. When Chuck finished high school, he continued studying at the State University of New York at Potsdam. Unfortunately, he dropped out after only two years and decided to start his career as a songwriter. Some of his works as a songwriter include the soundtrack of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, and Deborah Harry’s song called “French Kissin’ in the USA”. From that time Chuck Lorre’s net worth began to grow rapidly.

Despite the success he had as a composer, Chuck decided to try working as a writer of shows. His debut was with the show entitled “Grace Under Fire”. It received a lot of acclaim from the critics and made Chuck more famous. Later he created such shows as “Cybill” and “Dharma & Greg”.

If to talk about his personal life, Chuck was married twice. His first wife was Paula Smith and the second one was Karen Witter, a famous model and actress. Chuck has four children.

Looks like we don't have Chuck Lorre salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 The name of his dog is Elmo Lorre, which he has shared with the audience on "the famous" vanity cards at the end of some of Chuck Lorre Productions episodes.
2 Writes individual vanity cards (inserted into the credits at the end of a show, identifying the production company) in stream-of-consciousness style for his Chuck Lorre Productions shows.

#Quote
1 The reason I changed my name was simple. My mother, never a fan of my father's family, had an unfortunate habit of using Levine as a stinging insult. When displeased with me, she would often say/shriek, "You know what you are? You're a Levine! A no good, rotten Levine!" So, for as far back as I can remember, every time I heard my last name I would experience acute feelings of low self-esteem. ..... My first wife was the one who suggested I change my name to remedy the situation. In fact, it was she who came up with the name Lorre, complete with the fancy spelling. I thought it sounded great. Chuck Lorre. Finally a name that did not make me squirm. It didn't occur to me that in England my new name translated into Chuck Truck. But most interestingly, I had completely forgotten that when I was around eight years old my father's business began to fail, forcing my mother to find work in a clothing store called... Lorie's. Pretty creepy, huh? Did I abandon my father's name only to unconsciously name myself after a place associated with my mother's abandonment of me? Or, even creepier, did my ex-wife somehow know all this and propose the name Lorre just to screw with me? Hmmm... I was a no good, rotten husband so I certainly had it coming.
2 I believe that the Laws of Karma do not apply to show business, where good things happens to bad people on a fairly regular basis.
3 I work from a deep sense of insecurity. I have the belief, and I can't shake it, that there are endless reasons to turn the channel. There are hundreds of channels and entirely other things to do besides TV. And if you make a bad television show there's no reason for the audience to come back the following week.

#Trademark
1 Frequently uses fellow actors and actresses in various roles in his shows
2 His shows often end abruptly to a black screen with his name displayed
3 Shows usually feature a small, core cast
4 Characters who make fun of their own appearances
5 Uses two main characters as a double act
6 Uses middle-aged characters discovering or experimenting sexuality
