It pays to make people laugh, and that’s how stand-up comedian Andrew Schulz has made his fortune. Schulz gained popularity for his unapologetic sense of humor and is also an actor, producer, and podcaster. As of 2023, Andrew Schulz has a net worth of $4 million.
Andrew Schulz was born in New York City in 1980 and his parents are of Scottish, German, and Irish descent. His mother Sandra, is a professional ballroom dancer, and his father, Larry, is a military veteran. Andrew also has a younger brother Greg who suffers from Schizophrenia.
Schulz was raised in East Village, a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan and attended public schools in the city. Andrew studied Psychology at the University of California and it was during this time that he discovered his passion for comedy.
While working as a restaurant manager near his university, Schulz was asked to do stand-up comedy at one of their comedy nights. It went poorly, but the experience ignited his desire to pursue a career as a comedian.
The New Yorker relocated to California and became a regular at Comedy Village. In 2008, he returned to his mothers homeland to perform at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. This served as his official debut in the comedy world and built a following for his funky sense of humor.
In 2017, Andrew uploaded his first YouTube comedy special, 4:4:1. The following year, he released 5:5:1, a comedy album that topped the charts at iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, and Google Play.
Schulz got his first acting gig back in 2009 in Rise of the Radio Show, a web series that he helped write. Next, the funnyman became a fan favorite on MTV2’s Guy Code and its spinoff series.
In 2015, he appeared in the short-lived IFC show Benders and featured in Amazon’s crime drama series Sneaky Pete. In 2020, he got his own Netflix special titled “Schulz Saves America”. The Netflix special doesn’t make him much money because he uses it to attract new fans and sell tickets to live shows.
Andrew is a co-host of two podcasts. His most popular show is The Brilliant Idiots podcast and Flagrant 2 is his second one, which he hosts with a couple of his best friends. Like most popular podcasts with a loyal following, they also sell merch to fans.

The Andrew Schulz YouTube channel is where the comedian posts many of his performances. The channel currently has 2.75 million subscribers, and SocialBlade.com estimates that it earns between $1,000 to $16,000 per month from YouTube ad revenue.
As for his live comedy shows that are often sold out, the average ticket price is around $40. His Flagrant 2 podcast has a Patreon page, which reportedly earns Andrew about $1 million per year. This is why his net worth is estimated to be $4 million.
Andrew previously dated musician Sara Phillips but they broke up in 2015 due to a lack of chemistry. The entertainer rebounded nicely and married Emma Turner in 2021. They live together in Soho, New York City.
