Bill Cosby Net Worth is $400 Million (as of 2020)
There is no other way to put it – Bill Cosby net worth is damn impressive! Getting closer to his 80s, this man has a fortune of $350 million, making him one of the richest African American actors in the world! As for 2012, only Tyler Perry was richer with $400 million in his watch, while plenty of other stars you’d think are rolling in money were lining behind him: Will Smith had $200 million, #4: Samuel L. Jackson Net Worth – $170 million, Morgan Freeman– $150 million, Denzel Washington – $140 million, Ice Cube – $140 million, Martin Lawrence– $110 million, LL Cool J– $100 million and Jamie Foxx– $85 million.

But even Bill Cosby net worth seems pretty miserable if you compare it with the fortunes that belong to the richest African Americans in the world. Oprah Winfrey, the self-made Queen of daytime television and now the queen of cable, owns some $2.7 billion (!!!), leaving Sean „Diddy“ Combs and his $550 million far behind her. Diddy, currently named the most affluent rapper in the world, has made his fortune from his music career, as well as various business ventures. Robert Johnson is just as rich as Sean Combs, but $550 million seems like nothing at all, compared to the money he had in the early 2000s. After selling his cable channel Black Entertainment Television, Johnson had some $3 billion in his account. So yes, it is not the comedians who draw in the most impressive sums…
Now let’s get back to our main topic and talk about the sources of Bill Cosby net worth. This man, named among the greatest African Americans in history, has started his career as a stand-up comedian and went on to star in an action show I Spy. It was not long until he won the hearts of the Americans and got his own eponymous show – The Bill Cosby Show. If my sources do not lie, up to date Bill has released 22 comedy albums, each contributing to his bank account. Starting in 1963 with Bill Cosby Is a Very Funny Fellow…Right!, he was extremely productive for the following 15 years , releasing at least one (sometimes two) albums annually. His latest comedy album, Bill Cosby: Far From Finished, has been distributed since 2013.
In addition to his work in comedy, Bill has built a successful career as a musician and released plenty of albums, as well as a several singles (check out “Little Ol’ Man (Uptight—Everything’s Alright)”. He is still quite an active old man, but I think it is safe to say that Bill Cosby net worth will allow him to live in luxury till the end of his days even if he never performs again!
