Mike Judge’s movies and TV shows have become famous over the years, mostly coming under the category of comedy. Not only is he an animator, but also voices many of the characters that he creates, directs his movies and even appears in movies for minor roles.
Through his multi-talented efforts, Mike Judge’s net worth has reached $85 million.
Owing to his father’s job, Mike Judge was born in Ecuador and grew up in New Mexico, completing his high school education there only.
Unlike many comedians and creators, Mike Judge didn’t have an interest in this field when he was younger as he chose to study physics at the University of California, even working in his selected field for some time.
Entering the world of animation
After working as a programmer, and being immensely dissatisfied with it, Judge went on to become a musician, but this didn’t fit perfectly either.
Eventually, Mike Judge decide to pursue animation, and began making short films with one of the first ones being Office Space, which later became a movie which Judge directed with cast members which included Jennifer Aniston.
Around that time, he created another short film called Frog Baseball, which introduced two characters named Beavis and Butt-head. The two characters were two immature teenage males, with no authoritative figures around to tell them how to behave.
These two characters proved to be the turning point he needed and led to Mike Judge net worth showing an increase.
His show, titled Beavis and Butt-head premiered on MTV and stayed on the network for around 4 years, coming back for a brief spell in 2011, with Judge still hoping that the series could come back again. Later, a film called Beavis and Butt-head Do America was released.
Other well-known work
The end of Beavis and Butt-Head in 1997 didn’t end Mike Judge’s career but was just the beginning.
He began working with Greg Daniels on King of the Hill, which was based on a family living on the suburbs. The series received much acclaim and got 13 seasons, with Fox airing it.
Mike Judge’s net worth showed a further increase when he started working on more films, other than the film featuring Beavis and Butt-head. He released Office Space, Idiocracy and Extract, all of which he wrote and directed.
After King of the Hill, Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley garnered significant attention and is currently being aired on HBO. The series is based in Silicon Valley, where Judge actually worked for some time and so used as his inspiration for the show. He also released ‘Mike Judge Presents: Tales from the Tour Bus ’recently.
