Catfish Cooley is an American comedian with approximate net worth of $1 million.
How Did Catfish Cooley Become Rich?
Catfish Cooley (real name David Cooley) was born in Louisiana, USA on May 2, 1990 to father Charles Cooley and mother Morami Cooley. Not much known about his parents or yearly life, except for the fact that he had finished Pitkin High School in late 2000’s.
His name Catfish Cooley first appeared in 7th season of the American TV-show Tosh.0 which provided commentary on viral videos, social culture and celebrities. The 27th episode where David Cooley performed was named ‘Catfish Cooley‘. The comedian liked the name, so he decided to adopt it and later, on 23th of February 2016 he started his Facebook page named ‘Hello world Catfish Cooley‘. At first he posted mostly funny pictures of himself and memes found over the Internet.
Later that year Catfish Cooley opened up Instagram account helloworldcatfish and uploaded his first video in October. Adding Instagram for promotional reasons was a good move, but this social network wouldn’t make him famous.
On March 4, 2017 Catfish Cooley opens YouTube channel with the same name and starts uploading short funny videos 2 – 3 minute each, mostly focusing around Redneck culture and stereotypes which gain the most attention from the viewers. On November 1, 2017 he uploaded video called ‘Redneck eats 2 Paqui worlds hottest chips with Louisiana hot sauce !!!‘ which instantly becomes the most viewed on the channel and remains such to this day with 4 million views:
Catfish Cooley continued to release more videos and growing his social pages on Facebook and Instagram. More and more people started to follow him and as of 2022 the comedian has over 4 million followers on Facebook, over 400 thousand followers on Instagram and 300k subscribers on YouTube.
In 2018 Catfish Cooley started his ‘Nitro Comedy Tour‘ along with which was produced by Bang Productions and featured Andrew Conn and Ginger Billy hosted by Gerard Haran. This tour has lasted for three years and ended only on February 5, 2021. Bang Productions Inc. remains his promotional company to this day.
Throughout 2018-2021 Catfish Cooley was touring, uploading new funny videos on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube and promoting the tour. For reasons unknown, the comedian stopped uploading videos on YouTube and his latest video is dated May 15, 2021.
Nowadays Catfish Cooley regularly uploads to Facebook and spends his time with his kids and wife.
What Is Catfish Cooley Net Worth?
Catfish Cooley has a net worth of 1 million USD as of 2022. He earned most of his money touring along with Ginger Billy in 2018 – 2021 .
Some of the money come from ads on his YouTube videos, but these are pennies compared to his main source of income. To put into perspective, in 2021 Catfish Cooley earned around 3 to 4 thousand dollars from YT views. The main reason why he quitted YouTube is probably financial: he simply didn’t see the reason to upload new sketches as the return was quite low.
Nitro Comedy Tour definitely wasn’t his last tour, so we are expecting more tours coming in in the future years, increasing Cooley’s net worth. Having over 4 million followers on Facebook he’s definitely capable of doing that!
