For example, Deray has portrayed Marvin in Scary Movie 4 and had three different roles on TV series Reno 911!: he appeared as criminal, homeless guy and Junior the Third on the episode Dangle‘s Son. Deray‘s personal life, which he often talks about during his comedy shows, is just as interesting as professional. Thus in this article I am going to both point out the main sources of Deray Davis net worth and tell you a little about his childhood and family.

As most comedians Deray did not have an ideal, dream-like childhood. Quite to the contrary: both of his parents were drug addicts and the boy barely had a stable place to live. He is quoted saying: “I lived every-damn-where. My address was Section 8 Illinois.” In his comedy show Deray has revealed that his mother has been addicted to drugs since he was an eight-year-old, “so there weren’t no damn holidays”- he said. This sad fact was followed by the joke “My mama told us Christmas was a rumor!”. This was not the only time when the comedian has been talking about his family in his performances. And is there any truth in his jokes and stories? According to Davis, all of his material comes from real life. While giving an interview to Chicago Tribune he said: “my family is like, ‘Why would you say that?’ I’m like, ‘Cuz it happened. You really did come to my house and try to steal the TV.’ Stuff like that. It’s a lot of embarrassing moments, but I feel like people are ready for it.” Well, judging from the current Deray Davis net worth it looks like at least people in his audience really are „ready for that“…
But it seems that some of his family members (I forgot to mention that Deray has 8 brothers and sisters) have not Always been happy about the comedian publicly sharing their dirty secrets. While talking to Chicago Tribune he said „They’re [family members] in more of my act than they used to be, because now I can actually handle the lawsuits. I have a nice legal team to handle that now. Freedom of speech!” We cannot tell you for sure whether the millionaire has been just joking around when he said this, but as we’ve said – absolute majority of his jokes come from real life situations… As for the day, stand-up comedy is one of the main sources of Deray Davis net worth, but he also earns good money for hosting television show “Mind of a Man” and filming for movies, such as G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
