Garry Trudeau Net Worth $40 Million Dollars

Garry Trudeau net worth: Garry Trudeau is an American cartoonist who has a net worth of $40 million. Garry Trudeau is best known for his work on the Doonesbury comic strip. In 1970, Trudeau’s comic strip, Doonesbury, was syndicated to just one paper, the Universal Press Syndicate, but now it’s syndicated to almost 1,400 newspapers globally. In 1975, Garry Trudeau became the first comic strip artist to win a Pulitzer, which will be traditionally granted simply to editorial-page cartoonists. He was nominated for an Oscar in 1977 in the category of Animated Short Film, for his work on A Doonesbury Special, and went to win the Cannes Film Festival Jury Special Prize in 1978 for the film. More recently, Garry Trudeau wrote a political sitcom called, Alpha House that stars John Goodman and Bill Murray. The pilot for the show was produced by Amazon Studios and aired in early 2013. It was very well received and Amazon has picked up Alpha House to develop into a complete series in the forthcoming year. Produced in New York on July 21, 1948, he is the great grandson of Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau, the guy who created Adirondack Cottage Sanitarium for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. He was raised in Saranac Lake, and attended St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire. In 1966, he enrolled in Yale University and became a member of Scroll and Key. As a Yale undergraduate, Trudeau was the editor-in-chief of “The Yale Record,” the country’s oldest college humor magazine. In 1980, Trudeau married journalist, Jane Pauley, and also the couple live in New York by using their three kids. Trudeau keeps a low personal profile, and makes merely a handful of public appearances every year.

Looks like we don't have Garry Trudeau salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1Brother-in-law of Ann Pauley.
2Unwinds by watching bad movies with several friends in the style of MST3K.
3Trudeau's great-great-grandfather, James de Berty Trudeau, was a friend of John James Audubon, for whom he shot birds.
4The walls of his studio are covered with original classic comic art -- Saul Steinberg, Jeff MacNelly, George Herriman's "Krazy Kat" and Winsor McCay's "Little Nemo in Slumberland".
5He has made the cover of nine major magazines, including Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and Mother Jones. In some cases his art has been on the cover itself.
6Has an artist's studio in the East 70's in Manhattan.
7Once produced a series of strips mocking the anti-abortion movement, but was pressured not to run them due to their inflammatory nature. They were later printed in The New Republic magazine.
8Wrote the introduction to Bill Watterson's first collection of "Calvin & Hobbes" cartoons.
9Was once thought to be the author of the book, Primary Colors.
10His "Doonesbury" comic strip character "Lacey Davenport" was modeled after New Jersey Congresswoman Millicent Fenwick.
11Modeled his "Doonesbury" comic strip character "Duke" after journalist Hunter S. Thompson.
12Was the subject of controversy over his reference to U.S. National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice as "brown sugar," a derogatory term aimed at African American women, in the April 7, 2004 edition of his comic strip.
13In the late 1960s, he attended Yale University along with future U.S. President George W. Bush and both served on the same dormitory social committee together. Another fellow student was 'Lanny J. Davis (I)'.
14Children with wife Jane Pauley: twins Ross and Rachel (born in 1983), and Thomas (born in 1986).
15Distantly related to former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau through a common ascendant exiled from France a few centuries ago. He made a reference to his distant cousin in his October 16, 1974 cartoon strip (the week's theme was President Gerald Ford's pardon for draft dodgers in Canada).
16His comic strip "Doonesbury" was the first daily comic strip ever to win a Pulitzer Prize for Best Editorial Cartoon (1975) [Before then, the prize was given only to "single panel" editorial cartoonists].
17He is the first major comic strip artist to put his strip on hiatus for a period of time before returning.
18Creator, writer and artist of the comic strip "Doonesbury".
19Brother of journalist Michelle Trudeau.

#Quote
1"I think he is smart but willfully ignorant, and he uses his ignorance for strategic advantage, which is appalling. He substitutes belief for thought. It protects you from self-doubt" -- Trudeau's opinion of President George W. Bush.
2When I talk to wounded veterans, I usually don't ask them what they think the mission was. I don't presume, because their lives are wrenching enough without the suggestion that their sacrifices may have been without meaning. Moreover, if that is so, it will become apparent to them soon enough . . . The young men and women who we've repeatedly put in harm's way are paying the price for this misbegotten mission, and as long as it continues, I, like so many of our countrymen, must walk this strange line between hating the war but honoring the warrior. I don't know how long we can keep it up. . .
3Having a successful daily comic strip is the closest thing to tenure that popular culture offers. But it doesn't seem to have freed up creativity any more than tenure for professors has. It's been an open invitation for complacency.
4America is the only country in the world where failing to publicize yourself is considered arrogant.
5The most difficult character for me is Zonker. He's much more of a free spirit than I am.
