Judd Apatow Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Judd Apatow is a well-known American film and television director, voice actor, screenwriter, as well as an actor. To the public, Judd Apatow is perhaps best known as a founder of a television production company called “Apatow Productions”, and his work on such series as “Girls” and “Freaks and Geeks”. The latter series, where Apatow served as the executive producer, proved to be a huge commercial success. Considered to be among the “100 Greatest Shows of All Time”, “Freaks and Geeks” developed a cult following, and placed at #21 on the “Top Cult Shows Ever”. Prior to its cancellation, the show aired one season and a total of 18 episodes, which inspired the release of several books. More recently, in 2014, Apatow produced a comedy film with Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine entitled “Begin Again”. Currently, Judd Apatow is working on an upcoming film called “Trainwreck” with Tilda Swinton, Bill Hader and Colin Quinn in the main roles. For his contributions to film and television industry, Apatow was rewarded with a Hollywood Comedy Award, Visionary Filmmaker Award, and received several Primetime Emmy nominations.

Judd Apatow Net Worth $90 Million

A well-known director and producer, how rich is Judd Apatow? According to sources, Judd Apatow’s net worth is estimated to be $90 million, most of which he has accumulated due to his involvement in the film industry.

Judd Apatow was born in 1967, in New York, United States, where he studied at Syosset High School. As a teenager, Apatow expressed an interest in stand-up comedy, and was largely inspired by such comedians as Bill Cosby and Steve Martin. As a result of that, Apatow started his career as a stand-up comedian, and performed at various clubs during his high school years. When he graduated from high school, he continued his studies at the University of Southern California, where he took screenwriting classes. Around the same time, he started to be more involved in the comedy world, and frequently visited “The Improv” comedy club. However, Apatow failed to graduate from the university, and instead chose to live with his friend Adam Sandler. Soon Apatow met Garry Shandling, who offered him a position as a writer for the Grammy Awards. With Garry Shandling’s help Apatow then joined the writers on “The Larry Sanders Show”, and two years later in 1995, co-wrote a comedy film entitled “Heavyweights”. In 1999, Apatow tried to launch his own series called “Sick in the Head”, and even wrote a pilot for it with Amy Poehler, Kevin Corrigan and David Krumholtz in the main roles. However, the show was not picked up to be put on air. That same year, he started working on “Freaks and Geeks”, which brought him a lot of commercial and critical success.

In regards to his personal life, Judd Apatow met his future wife Leslie Mann in 1996, when they both worked on “The Cable Guy” film, and the couple celebrated their wedding a year. Together, they have two children, namely Iris and Maude, both of whom have appeared in Apatow’s films.

13 His number-one idol is Steve Martin.
14 His favorite comedy film is Young Frankenstein (1974).
15 Before he was famous, he asked his comedy hero, Steve Martin, for his autograph, but Martin refused (he didn't give autographs at his home). Afterwords, Apatow wrote him a nasty letter with some nicely placed profanity. In response, Martin sent him a copy of his book, "Cruel Shoes." The inscription read: "Sorry, I didn't realize I was speaking to THE Judd Apatow".

1 [on the MPAA] Studios own the ratings board. Violence sells so they make pot and sex the scary thing so they seem caring. [2016]
2 As much as I love Woody Allen. I wish he would tell me that things are going to be O.K. at some point. But I don't think he's going to.
3 To write for someone who thinks rich people should not be regulated and are deeply concerned about the poor is delusional. As someone who makes a comfortable living, I can clearly state that wealthy people cannot be trusted.
4 I've had movies bomb with terrible reviews, I've had movies make a lot of money with terrible reviews, I've had movies get good reviews and make money. And I like it best when the movies do well and the reviewers like them. I love magazines and film critics, so I eat it up. I'm not one of those people who says "I never read anything". I generally read all of it.
5 My wife tends to challenge me when I'm working on the female roles. She beats up on me about making sure they have the proper amount of depth and not just be there to serve the men. Obviously my wife makes me laugh a lot but she doesn't see herself as a funny person. In fact, she gets mad at me if I say "How do we make this funny?" She just wants to make it real.
6 Television is much more difficult because at every moment the network can force you to change things based on their belief about what would make it popular. You're in a constant debate with a gun at your head, and the gun is cancellation. So it's hard to win the arguments.
7 America fears the penis, and that's something I'm going to help them get over.
8 Extras (2005). I really have no interest in directing anything I haven't written, but if Ricky Gervais called tomorrow, well, I could be seduced. I always watch that show and think it's not going to get me. And then I find myself laughing hard out loud. I'm a burnt-out bitter comic. I don't laugh out loud. I don't make noise. I don't know how he does it but Extras gets me every time. - on the only other comedy creation that makes him laugh every time
9 My way of dealing with the world has always been to make fun of it and observe it but not take part in it. That's how I became a writer. But when you have kids, suddenly you have to be part of things. It leads almost to a breakdown because your whole defense mechanism is now really destructive.
10 It's so difficult to shock America these days.
11 College is the reward for surviving high school. Most people have great fun stories from college and nightmare stories from high school.
12 I think that everything I do tends to root for the underdog. I always felt as a kid that I was under appreciated, invisible or weird, but I've always secretly thought people would one day appreciate what is different about me. I'm always putting that message out there. Eventually, the nerds and the geeks will have their day.
13 When R-rated comedies don't work, the studios are really embarrassed by them. But a PG-13 comedy is actually less offensive than an episode of Friends (1994). I think people want something a little more adult.
