Alec Berg was born in the United States of America, of Swedish descent, and is a scriptwriter, best known for writing comedy, including for the hit sitcom “Seinfeld”. He has also co-written screenplays for various films, including “The Dictator”, “The Cat in the Hat” and “Eurotrip”. All of his efforts have helped put his net worth to where it is today.

How rich is Alec Berg? As of mid-2017, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $3 million, mostly earned through success in writing. He’s been active in the industry since 1991, which has also included executive production work. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Alec started earning popularity and his net worth started increasing when he became the writer of “Seinfeld”; the series started in 1989, and Alec joined the writing staff two years later. It was created by Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David and stars a fictionalized version of Seinfeld, set in New York City and featuring Jerry’s acquaintances as well as friends. It ran for nine seasons and is considered one of the most influential sitcoms ever made, ranking among the top television shows of all time by several publications, and was a favorite among critics every year of its airing.

In 2000, Alec started working on the television series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” which he worked as an executive producer. He also directed several of the show’s episode. The film was created by Larry David and went on to run for eight seasons before going on an indefinite hiatus.

In 2003, Berg then started working on the film “The Cat in the Hat’, which is based on the 1957 Dr. Seuss book of the same name. The titular character is played by Mike Myers, and the film also features Dakota Fanning. The film was supposed to have a sequel, but after widow Audrey Geisel prohibited any other live action adaptations, plans were scrapped. Berg’s net worth continued to rise with more projects. He then wrote for the film “EuroTrip” which stars Scott Mechlowitz, Travis Wester, and Michelle Trachtenberg. The film would receive a nomination for a 2004 Teen Choice Award, however, reviews on the film were mixed though it found success at the box office, and contributed to Alec’s net worth.

Alec then started working on the film “The Dictator” which stars and is co-written by Sacha Baron Cohen; the film is a satire and also features Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, and Jason Mantzoukas.

The character Sacha portrays was inspired by various dictators including Idi Amin, Muammar Gaddafi, and Kim Jong-Il, but the film received mixed reviews and has been banned in several countries. One of Alec’s latest projects is the comedy series “Silicon Valley” which started in 2014.The series focuses on six men who founded a startup company in Silicon Valley.

For his personal life, it is known that Berg was married to Michelle Maika. He is very active on social media, specifically Twitter on which he has over 7,000 followers – he updates his page regularly.

Alec Berger Important Facts

  • His name was memorialized (“Alec Berg … it’s a great John Houseman name … ‘Mr. Berg.'”) in the Seinfeld (1989) episode “The Face Painter,” referencing a minor character named after Berg, who was a writer for the show.
  • Co-directed the film EuroTrip (2004) with partners David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer. Due to rules set forth by the Director’s Guild of America, only one of them was allowed to take a directing credit on the film. They drew a name from a hat, and the credit went to Jeff Schaffer with the understanding that the credit for their next film would go to either Mandel or Berg. The drawing of the name from the hat is featured on the EuroTrip (2004) DVD as a special feature.
