How much is Larry David’s net worth ?
Larry David is an American comedian, writer, actor, director, and television producer who has a net worth of $425 million. He is best known as the creator of “Seinfeld” alongside friend Jerry Seinfeld as well as the creator and star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
Larry David “Seinfeld” Syndication Earnings
Larry earned the vast majority of his net worth due to his association with the massively successful “Seinfeld.” From the beginning of the show, Larry and Jerry each owned 7.5% of the show’s backend equity points.
At the peak of the show’s success in the mid-1990s, the duo negotiated a deal with NBC that boosted their points to 15% apiece. Part of that boost also came from Larry and Jerry buying out an equity owner who was looking to cash out. The show was first syndicated in 1998. That first deal generated $1.7 billion in revenue, giving Larry and Jerry each a $250 million windfall.
In an average year, he makes $40-50 million between syndication, DVD sales, merchandise, and other platform royalties. In some years that number can be much higher.
In 2015 Larry earned a total of $80 million after Hulu paid $180 million to acquire Seinfeld‘s streaming rights, giving both Larry and Jerry an extra $30 million.
In the last two decades, Seinfeld has generated well over $4 billion in syndication revenue, roughly $17 million per episode. As of this writing, Jerry and Larry have both earned at least $800 million from “Seinfeld” between salary, DVD, merchandise, and syndication deals.
When “Seinfeld” sold to Netflix for $500 million in September 2019, both Larry and Jerry earned $75 million.
Larry David Salary and Net Worth Details
Unfortunately, Larry’s net worth took a pretty large hit after his divorce from ex-wife Laurie in 2007. Larry reportedly paid Laurie 50% of his net worth at the time. This resulted in a $200-300 million settlement that includes future syndication income from both “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.“

In the summer of 2017, PBS’s “Finding Your Roots” discovered through genealogical research that David and Bernie Sanders are distantly related. The comedian explained that Sanders is “a third cousin or something.” This was quite a coincidence considering that Since 2015, David made multiple guest appearances portraying Bernie Sanders on “Saturday Night Live.”
