    That site isn't very accurate. For Benjy to have a net worth of $3 mil, he would have had to make AT LEAST $6 mil. Benjy started writing for the show in-studio in 2000. For him to have made $6 mil in that time frame he would have had to make at least $500,000 a year. I think Artie was making about $350,000 when he first started at K-Rock and about $850,000 in his final year at Sirius. Benjy can't be making that much...

    I heard that if you have X for a networth, you needed to make double that amount as a salary.

    City Tax. State Tax. Federal Tax. Social Security Tax. Unemployment Tax.

    Many of us are in the "50% tax bracket."

    oh. i think that might not hold for entertainers because the IRS has a totally different way of calculating their taxes based upon agreements worked out with the industry and unions years ago. his business expenses practically wipe out his taxes each year (they did to mine when i worked in the industry) because everything he does is a deductible expense: comic books, tv costs, playboy magazine subscriptions are all deductible expenses.

    entertainers aren't. almost their whole life is a business deduction.

    Benjy's apartment in the city is worth about $750K, so he is making some decent money.. but $6M seems high.

    I doubt that Benjy could scrape together 50 grand if I kidnapped Elisa.

    And that's fine. I don't plan on giving her back.

    Didn't Benjy have lawn furniture in his seedy apartment before EJ moved in?

    We know he doesn't spend his money on haircuts, clothing, or a gym membership.

    I expect that Howie pays him 80 grand per year, and it's all wiped out living in NYC.

    But.. ever since they came to Sirius, it seems lots of the people on the show have bought now homes.

    Howard: bought the apartment below his and combined the two into a single unit worth over $30M.. also bought Chimney Manor worth over $25M.

    Robin: bought a new shore house and a new apartment.. both worth about $2M each.

    Fred: bought a new condo worth $2M.

    Gary: bought a new home in Conneticut (sp?).

    Artie: new shore house.

    ALL of them bought new homes since 2006..

    Maybe you noticed the economic collapse of 2008 tied to the corrupt housing market. Even Stern staffers were given mortgages. You know some funky accounting was afoot.

    Fred bought his new place last year. And staffers like Sal, JD, Ronnie and Scott Salem still love in the homes they were living in pre-2006. It sounds like the "upper tier" got a nice increase in pay with the move to Sirius.. and Benjy is on the borderline between the "upper tier" and secondary tier with the likes of Richard and Sal.
