Joey Diaz is a Cuban-American actor and comedian who has a net worth of $500 thousand dollars. Born Jose Antonio Diaz in Havana, Cuba, in 1963, Joey Diaz grew up in New Jersey and struggled with law enforcement as a teen after the deaths of his parents.
He enrolled in the University of Colorado at Boulder but was arrested for aggravated robbery and kidnapping, and did time behind bars. Diaz says his comedy career began while he was in prison after he entertained fellow inmates when the projector broke during a movie night. Once freed, Diaz moved to Los Angeles to take advantage of the city’s open mic nights and he began working in TV and film. He landed parts in “Spider-Man 2”, “Taxi”, and “Law & Order” before scoring a role in 2005’s “The Longest Yard” as a convict. He also appeared on several episodes of “My Name is Earl” a few years later. Other TV and film credits include “The Dog Who Saved Christmas”, “Grudge Match”, “My Life at 26”, “The Dark Night”, “Wizards of Waverly Place”, “Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star”, and “The Mentalist”. Diaz lives in Los Angeles, but performed a charity standup event to help fundraise at North Bergen High School in his former New Jersey town.
