The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (2024)

Highlights

  • Larry David is obviously the wealthiest cast member of Curb Your Enthusiasm, with a net worth of $400 million, thanks to both Curb and Seinfeld.
  • Other cast members, such as JB Smoove, Bob Einstein, Richard Lewis, Susie Essman, and Cheryl Hines, have significant net worths as well.
  • Guest stars like Jerry Seinfeld, Vince Vaughn and Ted Danson have also accumulated substantial wealth.

Regardless of whether or not fans think Curb Your Enthusiasm is as good as it used to be, there's no doubt that it was one of HBO's biggest hits. Additionally, it also had some of the most quotable, memorable and downright hilarious moments in sitcom history. Because of this, Larry David and the cast of Curb will forever have the hearts and minds of the show's fanbase. It's also one of the reasons why Curb is one of the longest-running sitcoms in history. HBO knew it had a hit that people wanted to watch which was why the network kept pumping money into it.

This means the cast of Curb has made quite a decent living from the show. But who is the richest cast member? Okay, Larry David is obviously the wealthiest. His net worth is legendary. But where do the rest of the cast stack up?

Obviously, some of the guest stars can rival Larry's net worth (this includes Jerry Seinfeld), but what about the faces that have surrounded Larry in almost every episode?

Celebrities are queuing up to appear in Curb Your Enthusiasm as themselves, whether it is a tiny cameo or a recurring role.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' will begin airing its final season in February 2024. The series finale is scheduled to air in April 2024. At that time, some of the cast members will be moving on to other projects that will increase their net worth even further.

9 JB Smoove

Net Worth: $5 Million

  • JB Smoove plays Leon Black on Curb Your Enthusiasm

For many, JB Smoove's Leon is the highlight of Curb Your Enthusiasm. While he had a stand-up career prior to booking his role part way through Curb's run, it's the HBO show that really made him a star.

After Smoove was hired to play Leon Black, JB's career blew up. He is now worth $5 million.

Some of the more current projects that Smoove worked on that helped contribute to his net worth, according to IMDb, include:

Harley Quinn (TV Series)

With more projects coming up in the future, it is clear that Smoove's net worth is only going to continue to climb.

8 Bob Einstein

Net Worth: $6 Million

  • Bob Einstein played Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm

Just because Bob is no longer with us doesn't mean he's no longer a part of the Curb Your Enthusiasm family. After all, Bob played Marty Funkhouser (AKA 'Funkman', AKA 'Big Funk') in a whopping 22 episodes. Not to mention the fact that he's been part of some of the most hilarious and iconic gags in the show's 20-plus-year history.

Prior to his 2019 death, Bob had a net worth of about $6 million. Over his illustrious career, Bob has made a real name for himself as a writer (The Smothers Brothers and Sonny and Cher Show, to name just two) and producer (Van Dyke & Company and Super Dave), along with being an actor.

Some of the more notable projects that Bob starred in over the years, according to IMDb include:

Ocean's Thirteen (Movie)

2007

Agent Caldwell (supporting)

Arrested Development (TV Series)

2006-2006

Larry (supporting)

Super Dave (TV Series)

1987-1999

Super Dave Osborne (lead)

It was a big loss for the entertainment world when Bob passed in 2019.

7 Richard Lewis

Net Worth: $7 Million

The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (4)
  • Richard Lewis played a semi-autobiographical version of himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm

Given that Richard Lewis is one of the most respected and notable stand-up comedians of his generation, it's really no surprise that his net worth is $7 million.

While he was not the biggest part of Curb Your Enthusiasm during the later seasons due to some health issues, Richard had been Larry's biggest sparing partner over all the seasons of the show.

Aside from comedy and Curb, Richard's net worth has been earned from some notable projects over the years. According to IMDb, they include:

7th Heaven (TV Series)

2002-2004

Rabbi Richard (supporting)

Hiller and Diller (TV Series)

1997-1998

Robin Hood: Men In Tights (Movie)

Prince John (lead)

Anything But Love (TV Series)

1989-1993

Marty Gold (lead)

It is unclear if Richard will appear in any of the episodes in the last season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

6 Susie Essman

Net Worth: $8 Million

The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (5)
  • Susie Essman played Susie Greene on Curb Your Enthusiasm

While Susie Essman may not have the largest net worth on the cast of Curb, $8 million is certainly nothing to sneeze at.

Most of her income has come from starring as the foul-mouthed Susie Greene on Curb, as well as her stand-up career. This includes her numerous appearances on the Comedy Central Roasts.

Larry David once freaked out the way his Curb Your Enthusiasm character would because he couldn't get out of a parking lot.

2022

Lorraine (voice)

Harley Quinn (TV Series)

2020

5 Cheryl Hines

Net Worth: $16 Million

The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (7)
  • Cheryl Hines plays Cheryl David on Curb Your Enthusiasm​​​​​​

Cheryl Hines is one of the highest earners on the cast of Curb Your Enthusiasm, with a net worth of $16 million. Much of this has to do with Curb, but she has also been the lead in a couple of other shows. Those projects, according to IMDb, include:

The Flight Attendant (TV Series)

2022

Dot Karlson (supporting)

This Close (TV Series)

2018-2019

Suburgatory (TV Series)

2011-2014

On top of this, Cheryl has been a working actor for decades, constantly getting booked. Even when the parts are small, Cheryl's work ethic has allowed her to bank some considerable dough. The fact that she's also a burgeoning director with some accolades doesn't hurt either.

4 Jeff Garlin

Net Worth: $20 Million

The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (8)
  • Jeff Garlin plays Jeff Greene on Curb Your Enthusiasm

Not only is Jeff Garlin one of the stars and executive producers of Curb Your Enthusiasm (allowing him to double-dip on the HBO show's success), but he is one of the leads of a hit ABC comedy as well, The Goldbergs.

As he told Howard Stern during an interview, The Goldbergs is where he gets to make the majority of his income as it's that sweet, sweet, network television money. Additionally, Garlin has been in other notable projects throughout his career. According to IMDb, those projects include:

Babylon (Movie)

2022

Don Wallach (supporting)

Mad About You (TV Series)

1997-2019

Marvin (supporting)

Toy Story 4 (Movie)

2005-2013

Mort Meyers (supporting)

Toy Story 3 (Movie)

2010

WALL-E (Movie)

Captain (voice)

The man never slows down, it's no wonder his net worth is $20 million (and is expected to continue to climb with the future projects Garlin has in various stages of production).

3 Vince Vaughn

Net Worth: $70 Million

The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (10)
  • Vince Vaughn played Freddie Funkhauser on Curb Your Enthusiasm

Is it any surprise that Vince Vaughn's net worth is a whopping $70 million? While the man was one of the last additions to the cast of Curb Your Enthusiasm (he played Freddie Funkhauser), he has been one of the most prolific actors of his generation.

While Vaughn has done more producing than acting as of late, he still has many notable projects to his name that have helped to grow his net worth. Some of those projects, according to IMDb, include:

Brawl in Cellblock 99 (Movie)

2017

Bradley Thomas (lead)

Hacksaw Ridge (Movie)

With projects on the horizon from a producing standpoint, Vaughn may not be on the big or small screen soon. However, Vaughn has not hung up his acting career and will be back when the right role comes his way.

2 Ted Danson

Net Worth: $80 Million

The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (11)
  • Ted Danson played a semi-autobiographical version of himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm

Ted Danson made his $80 million fortune thanks to being one of the most accomplished and beloved sitcom actors ever.

While he was great on Curb as a warped version of himself who's constantly competing with Larry, he was even better in the show that made Danson a star, which was Cheers.

Aside from all the prestige and accolades playing Sam Malone on Cheers brought Ted, he was also making about $500,000 per episode at the height of the show's success.

Some of the other notable projects that Danson has worked on over the years, according to IMDb include:

On top of this, Ted has also had incredible roles in dramas like Damages, Fargo, CSI, and Saving Private Ryan.

Danson does not currently have any upcoming projects, but with an $80 million net worth, he really doesn't have to.

1 Larry David

Net Worth: $400 Million

The 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast Ranked From Poorest To Richest (12)
  • Larry David plays a semi-autobiographical version of himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm

Everyone knows that Larry David's net worth is one of the most impressive in all of Hollywood. While Larry has repeatedly downplayed how large his net worth actually is, almost every source claims that it's roughly $400 million.

While Curb Your Enthusiasm is the main source of income for many of the show's cast members, it's chump change for Larry. After all, he's still making money from the success of Seinfeld, which is arguably the most beloved sitcoms of all time. Thanks to syndication, merchandising, endless reruns, and licensing the show to Netflix and various other sources, Larry will likely keep making insane amounts of money from Seinfeld for the rest of his life and that of his children's children.
