Tim Dillon is a stand-up comic, podcast host, and actor from the United States. He is most known for his podcast, The Tim Dillon Show. He has been one of the top creators on Patreon and continues to make fans laugh with his hilarious outbursts. As of 2023, Tim Dillon has an estimated net worth of $4 million.
Dillon was born on January 22, 1985, in Island Park, New York. As he has mentioned many times, Tim is of Irish Catholic descent. When he was a kid, his parents split up, and his mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia. His first exposure to the public was as a child actor. He got a small role on the children’s classic Sesame Street in 1994 and featured on the show twice.
Growing up, he had no interest in becoming a comedian. One of his early jobs was working as a subprime mortgage broker during the 2008 housing crisis. He purchased a house around this time but it later went into foreclosure.
Tim spent time working at Lisa’s Lounge, a local bar that has inspired a lot of skits over the years. Dillon began performing stand-up comedy in 2010 while working as a tour guide in New York City.
He left for Los Angeles and started to gain recognition in 2016 and 2017. Rolling Stone named him one of the “10 Comedians You Need to Know” after performing at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.
Dillon appeared at The Chris Gethard Show, The 2016 Chris Gethard Election Special, and Comedy Knockout. The funnyman actively tours around the US and is currently in Las Vegas.
The Tim Dillon Show
Tim started to grab the spotlight in 2016 and created a podcast on the GaS Digital Network. The podcast, which was originally named “Tim Dillon is Going to Hell”, had monologues from Dillon and his co-host Ray Kump.
Due to their success, they got interviews with high-ranking state officials and investigative reporters. Tim quit the network later, and in 2019, he rebranded the show to its present name. He also started on Patreon around that time.
Now, he has 551,000 subscribers on YouTube and around 34,000 people supporting him on Patreons. His other social media accounts are also booming, Dillion has 759,000 followers on Twitter and 675,000 on Instagram.
Although he makes decent money from ads on YouTube, his primary source of income is Patreon, where he uploads extra content from Tim Dillon’s Going to Hell. It took off immediately, and by 2020, he was one of the site’s top creators. He offers two subscription packages, one for $5 per month and another for $20. Currently, Dillon earns $1.5 million per year on the platform.
After a brief stay in Austin, Texas, Tim now lives in Los Angeles. He previously suffered from substance abuse, but he is currently sober. Tim Dillon is homosexual and came out when he was 25 years old. However, there is no news about him having a boyfriend.
