According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that John Mahoney`s net worth is as high as $15 million, earned through his successful career in the entertainment industry. Apart from appearing on screen, John has also been a stage and voice actor, which has also improved his net worth.

John and his eight siblings, along with parents were evacuated from Manchester to Blackpool, when the Second World War erupted. There, he went to the St Joseph’s College, but after the war ended, they all returned to Manchester. Growing up in the Withington area, John became interested in acting and joined the Stretford Children`s Theatre. After high school, John moved to the USA with his older sister, Vera, who married in the USA. He enrolled at Quincy University in Illinois, and then joined the US Army, as he wanted to obtain citizenship as soon as possible, achieved in 1959, now holding of dual citizenship. Before he became an actor, John taught English language at Western Illinois University, and also worked as editor of a medical journal, in the 1970s.

In the early 1970s he started taking acting classes at St. Nicolas Theatre, and in 1977 he made his first appearance on stage. After that, he was invited by John Malkovich to join the Steppenwolf Theatre, and the same year he won his first award, Clarence Derwent Awards in the category Most Promising Male Newcomer. He played in the “Orphans” by Lyle Kessler, which launched him into the acting world, and won Broadway`s Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play for his performance in John Guare’s “The House of Blue Leaves”. His net worth was established.

His career on screen began in the early 1980s, but until 1987 he didn`t have any major roles until he was selected as Moe Adams in Barry Levinson`s “Tin Men”, alongside Richard Dreyfuss and Danny DeVito. By the end of the 1980s he had appeared in successful films “Moonstruck” (1987), starring Cher and Nicolas Cage, “Betrayed” (1988) with Debra Winger and Tom Berenger, and “Say Anything” (1989) alongside John Cusack and Ione Skye.

John continued successfully through the 1990s, as in the first half he secured parts in “Barton Fink” (1991) with John Goodman and Judy Davis as leads, and in 1993 he was selected for the role of Martin Crane in the TV series “Frasier” (1993-2004), with David Hyde Pierce and Kelsey Grammer. Also in 1993 he played Sam Campagna in the film “In The Line of Fire”. During the 1990s he had several notable roles, including in “The Hudsucker Proxy” (1994), “Reality Bites” (1994), “The American President” (1995), and “Primal Fear” (1996), among others, all of which added to his net worth.

In the new millennium John`s first role was as Jack in “The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy”, and five years later he appeared in the film “Fathers And Sons”. In 2007 he played Poppy in the comedy film “Dan in Real Life” with Steve Carell in the lead role, and two years later he portrayed Walter Barnett in the TV series “In Treatment” (2009). In 2010 he was selected for the role of Chet Duncan in the film “Flipped”, with young star Madeline Carroll in the lead role. To speak further of his accomplishments and rising net worth, John appeared in the TV series “Hot In Cleveland” (2011-2014), and “Foyle`s War” in 2015.

John`s net worth has increased through his career as a voice actor too; he has lent his voice to characters from animated TV series and films, and video games as well, including “The Iron Giant” (1999), “The Simpsons” (2007), “Kronk`s New Groove” (2005), “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” (2001), among others.
