Jimmy Tatro’s Story
James Richard “Jimmy” Tatro was born in February 1992 in Los Angles, California. He attended Notre Dame High School and continued on to the University of Arizona. However, he didn’t graduate from his alma mater. He dropped out his junior year to focus on his career in comedy.
It was in high school that Jimmy first started his career in standup. In 2010 he and his friend Christian Pierce created “LifeAccordingtoJimmy,” a Youtube channel in which Tatro narrated. He kept up with the channel through his three years in college until he dropped out and decided to focus on his career.
Eventually his Youtube channel was discovered and Tatro was able to begin his standup career. He toured comedy clubs and college campuses. Since he debuted in 2010, he has been featured on Comedy Central and in films like “Grown Ups 2” and “22 Jump Street.”
His career has blown up over the past seven years but what has it done for his finances? What is Jimmy Tatro’s net worth?

Comedian Jimmy Tatro’s net worth is $2 million. He has gained fame through his Youtube channel and the standup he’s performed on Comedy Central but that isn’t enough to amass to $2 million, is it? Where did all of his wealth come from?
Tatro’s secret, like many celebrities, is that he has multiple sources of income. Of course Comedy Central pays him for any standup he does on the channel (and he gets paid when it is rerun). The majority of his income, however, comes from his Youtube channel and the standup he does around the U.S. Tatro has over 2.5 million subscribers on Youtube, creating a huge funnel for revenue through advertisements on the website. He is also able to sell tickets to his shows along with merchandise and live recordings.
The comedian has also appeared in films, as mentioned above. Tatro hasn’t made a lot of money from his small film career though. His income from the big screen may increase in the years to come though. Other comedians like Amy Schumer and Kevin Hart have taken to the big screen recently as well. If he follows the same pattern Jimmy Tatro’s net worth will likely continue to climb in the future.
