Joe Gatto net worth – what do we know?
Celebrities make a lot of money, that isn’t entirely new. But it’s fun to learn their exact or at least approximate worth. Though he is very far from the richest comedian in the world, Joe Gatto has a nice estimated net worth of $500 thousand.
Joseph Anthony “Joe” Gatto Jr. is an American comedian, producer, and writer from Staten Island, New York. He was born on June 5, 1976 and is a graduate from Monsignor Farrell High School (1994,) and LIU Post (1998) where he earned a degree in Accounting. Joe is known for being a member of the comedy troupe The Tenderloins which he co-founded in 1999 with James Murray, Mike Boccio, and Sal Vulcano. Gatto is perhaps best known for his featured role as one of the pranksters on the truTv reality television series Impractical Jokers. The series first aired in December of 2011, and Gatto has been a part of the show since episode one.
According to Celebrity Net Worth and Reddit, Joe Gatto net worth and assets are estimated at $500,000.00. Gatto has served as an executive producer of Impractical Jokers since 2011, and also wrote and starred in the 2009 TV movie The Tenderloins. He appeared on the TV series Jokers Wild in 2014.
In an “After Party Chat” video in which the cast of Impractical Jokers are asked questions by the fans of the show, fellow co-star Brian “Q” Quinn is asked “How much money do you make on the show?” In typical comedic fashion, “Q” responds by saying “I want you to think of a number. Then cut that number in half. Then cut that number in half. Then cut that number in half again…” Clearly, these jokers are not making the big bucks, but they do seem to be doing alright for themselves.
About The Tenderloins:
The Tenderloins started in 1999 as a live improvisational and sketch comedy; their work rooted in the training of famed comedy instructors Del Close and Charna Halpern. The members of the troupe met at Monsignor Farrell High School (Staten Island). They have performed in New York, LA, Chicago, and have also been in several comedy festivals across the United States. In 2007, the troupe won the grand prize in the NBC sketch comedy contest It’s Your Show.
In April 2011, truTV announced the Impractical Jokers series, by the Tenderloins. The show premiered in December 2011. Season 1 had 17 half-hour episodes and was watched by 32 million viewers.
Impractical Jokers has generally been well received, capitalizing on the grand tradition of reality prank TV with shows such as Candid Camera and Jackass, yet possessing its own unique and personal twist. The pranksters (including Joe Gatto) are said to keep the show light and fun with “occasional integrity” and are even “a little bit loveable.”
The series has inspired several international spin-offs, and is currently in its sixth season. The most recent episode was “Swim Shady,” aired on February 9th, 2017.
