In 2020, his Netflix special, Schulz Saves America, made headlines for his controversial jokes blaming Asians for the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the special must have been a major financial contract for Andrew, the backlash may have cost him more money than he made. Even still, he garnerred even more fans and listeners for his various podcasts, such as The Brilliant Idiots with Charlamagne tha God and Flagrant with Akaash, Mark Gagnon, and AlexxMedia.

Andrew released his debut comedy album, 5:5:1, in 2018 on iTunes, based on his self-released special 4:4:1. The album ranked at the top of the comedy charts on Apple Music, Google Play, and Amazon, as well as on the Billboard comedy album charts, which must have garnered some cash for Andrew.

Thanks to Andrew Schulz’s Madison Square Garden performance, his net worth could skyrocket.

With tickets ranging from $40 to $1000 for VIP tickets at Andrew’s various performances, his net worth could skyrocket. While big-budget tours are expensive, Madison Square Garden has a capacity of nearly 20,000, so one sold-out show can garner millions in revenue. In addition, Andrew will likely perform at smaller shows beforehand to prepare.

While regular touring comedians make anything from $50 to $500 for gigs throughout America (or even more depending on their profile), they often prepare for shows by performing at open mics or smaller unpaid shows. Andrew, on the other hand, would likely drop into those smaller paid gigs to prepare for his stadium shows, so he’s making money through live performance as well.

If Andrew has proven us anything, it’s that if you have a dream to get rich and famous through comedy and MTV, it’s possible.
