David Steinberg was born to Yasha Steinberg, who was a rabbi, and Ruth Steinberg. Initially, he was a student of Theology in Israel, then he enrolled at the University of Chicago to study English Literature; however, while at college, David decided to pursue a career as a comedian.

Upon graduation, he was spotted by one of the founders of The Second City in Chicago, a member of which he became in 1964, and his professional career in the entertainment industry began. He stayed there for six years, performing together with such comedians as Peter Boyle, Fred Willard, and Robert Klein. One of David’s performances was in the CBS’ show “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” in 1968, which was soon cancelled, after which he began to host “The Music Scene” (1969-1970). Six years later, he wrote his own comedy sketch show named “The David Steinberg Show” (1976-1977), which really established his net worth.

David’s big breakthrough came when he made his debut as a director and producer, creating during the 1980s such TV and film titles as “Paternity” (1981), “One Big Family” (1986-1987), “Newhart” (1986-1990), and “Annie McGuire” (1988-1989) among others. He also became known through directing the TV series “Designing Women”, which aired from 1987 until 1993. At the beginning of the next decade, he directed and produced the film “I Love Lucy: The Very First Show” (1990), an episode of the TV series “The Fanelli Boys” (1990), and the TV series “Evening Shade” (1990-1991). In the following years, his projects included the 1991 film “Coconut Downs”, the TV series “Seinfeld” (1991-1998), the TV series “It Had to Be You” (1993), and the 1997 film “The Wrong Guy”, all of which added a considerable amount to his net worth. By the 2000s, he was also the director of an episode of “Friends”, “Mad About You” (1994-1999), and the executive producer of “Lost On Earth” (1997).

In the new millennium, David continued to line up success after success, producing the TV series “Big Sound” (2000-2001), and directing the TV series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (2000-2011), and the 2001 film “What’s Up, Peter Fuddy?”. He went on to create and produce several other widely popular TV series and films, such as “Weeds” (2008), “Living In Your Car” (2010), and the TV show “Inside Comedy”, for which he was the host as well, increasing his net worth by a large margin.

Most of David’s shows were very successful, both financially and critically, which earned him many nominations and awards, including two Emmy and one a CableACE Awards, nomination for the Directors Guild of America Award in the category for Outstanding Directing – Comedy Series, and for a Canadian Award. He was also inducted onto Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2003, and was named a Member of the Order of Canada in 2016.

Speaking about his personal life, David Steinberg has been married to Robyn Todd since 2005. Previously, he was married to Judy Steinberg (1973-1997), with whom he has two children.
