The success of the 2018 biographical drama film Stan & Ollie may not have been achieved had the likes of Steve Coogan not been part of the project. The film, directed by Jon S. Baird and produced by Faye Ward has received positive reviews from a number of notable critics, earning multiple nominations and awards, and grossing over $26.4 million from its budget of $10 million. Coogan and his co-star in the film, John C. Reilly, were beneficiaries of notable awards for their roles in the film. There is no gainsaying that the film’s success contributed to Steve Coogan’s net worth.
Stan & Ollie is one of the many films that Coogan has graced. The English actor, comedian, film producer, and screenwriter is famously known for starring in films and TV shows like The Trip, I’m Alan Partridge, Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge and Cruise of the Gods. With such extraordinary acting roles, it is only justifiable that such a talented performer should be recognized with several awards and as expected, Steve isn’t lacking in that area as he is a multiple award recipient. But outside the awards and massive recognition, how much did the Stan & Ollie star actually make from his films and how has his net worth improved over the years? You will find out this and more as you read on.
How Much Is Steve Coogan’s Net Worth?
Born to an IBM engineer father in 1965, Steve Coogan discovered his talent for impersonation at an early age and despite several discouragements, he eventually joined show business as an impressionist. His first appearance on TV was in the 1987 game show The Krypton Factor. His breakout, however, was in the early 90s when he won a Perrier Award for his role in a TV sketch show, The Dead Good Show.
For someone who was earlier discouraged by his teacher not to venture into performing arts, Steve has defied the odds and so far is having a blissful and very prolific career, earning beyond what his school teachers would never have imagined he could earn.
Steve Coogan’s net worth is estimated at 12 million much of which he earned from his roles in the industry as an actor, producer, and screenwriter. Some of the shows he executive-produced includes I Am Not An Animal, Human Remains, Sensitive Skin and The Keith Barret Show. Although there are no specifications of how much he earns from all of his film roles, there is no doubt that the multi-talent is among the top paid actors of his time.
Part of Steve Coogan’s net worth also comes from his stand-up comedy which he does from time to time. Some of his stand-up releases include Live – The Man Who Thinks He’s It, Paul and Pauline Calf’s Cheese and Ham Sandwich, and As Alan Partridge And Other Less Successful Characters – Live.
