How Did Tom Segura Become Rich?
Tom Segura was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, to Thomas Segura Sr. and Charo. His has father has Fench-Canadian, Spanish and Cajun (ethnic group of French descendants living mainly in the Louisiana and Canada) ancestry whereas his mother was from Peru. The future comedian attended a private Lutheran Lenoir-Rhyne University.
He didn’t become stand-up comedian right after finishing he university. Tom Segura needed money, so he went to work but at the evenings performed in clubs to gain some recognition. His start in the comedy industry happened in 2007, but even then he worked as a logger – a person who produces transcripts of shows. A prime example of such shows would be My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss and Extreme Makeover.
After gaining some fame and reputation among people, Segura and his wife Christina Pazsitzky who he has married in 2008 started their comedy podcast called ‘Your Mom’s House‘ in 2010 which they host to this day. It covers their daily lives, ongoing events and comedy topics as well as some toilet humor and running jokes. In some episodes they feature famous comedians such as Josh Wolf, Steve Byrne, Chris Distefano and many others.
In 2011 he started yet another podcast called ‘2 Bears, 1 Cave‘. This time his co-host was an actor, comedian and producer Bert Kreischer.
Tom Segura took part in different comedy festivals, the most prominent ones among them were: the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the US Comedy Festival, the Vancouver Global Comedy Festival and Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. He also took part in the Last Comic Standing 2 reality TV talent competition show and ended up being a San Francisco regional finalist.
In 2018 Tom Segura and his wife secured a deal with CBS for producing their show ‘The Little Things’. Later he signed a deal with Netflix for a few specials, the most famous one being ‘Ball Hog’. In 2021 he continues to promote his stand-up shows on his YouTube channel.
Nowadays the Segura family runs six podcasts.
What Is Tom Segura Net Worth?
His total net worth is about 12 million USD including his properties (we will talk later about that). It increased significantly in the last year, when he signed deals with CBs and Netflix. The latter is famous for giving high payout for stand-up comedians if they release their shows exclusively on this platform. In 2017, for example, Jerry Seinfeld received $100 million from his deal with the streaming platform. We do not know exact figures for Tom’s deal with Netflix but it’s definitely a few millions USD.
He receives money from writing books as well. In 2010 Tom Segura released his first book called ‘Thrilled‘. In 2014 it was followed-up by ‘Completely Normal‘ and in 2017 he released his third book ‘Mostly Stories‘. His fourth book called ‘I’d Like to Play Alone, Please‘ is set to release on May 10, 2022. Despite being famous comedian, his books aren’t that successful and they do not hit ‘best-seller’ status. However, they bring some additional income for the Segura’s family and increase his total net worth.
How Tom Segura Spends His Money?
In the last year the Segura family become even more famous as house flippers. In fall of 2016 they bought for $1,6 million a 4,619 sq. ft. 4-bedroom and 5-bathroom estate in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles. It includes a large flat yard, a backyard swimming pool and other amenities. It was originally built in 1956 and after they’ve done some upgrades here and there, the property was listed for sale with a price tag of 1.999 million USD.

In December 2019 Tom Segura and his wife Christina decided to invest $6,650,000 into another L.A. property, this time into a 5,779 square feet, 7-bedroom and 7-bathroom mansion located in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles. The house was built in 2015 (almost new!) but already changed hands three times: Romaine Orthwein bought it first for $6,3 million to sold it later for 6.76 million USD to Tim Stone. He, eventually, sold it to the Segura family.
6,65 million mansion
However, following the trend of stand-up comedians moving to Texas (Joe Rogan bought a house there one year earlier), Tom and Christina decided that they would do it as well. They bought a house in Austin and in May 2021 Segura listed this newly acquired estate for 6,85 million USD. Apart from being successful comedians, the couple is definitely has some talent in house flipping industry.
Not much known about their house in Austin, but they bought a building in South Austin which they plan to renovate spending a little over 1 million. The comedians plan to relocate their Your Mom’s House Studios there in the nearest future. S. Tipton Studio was chosen to design the podcast studio. There will be 3 podcasts studios, control rooms and offices.
