Dick Gregory Net Worth $8 Million Dollars

Dick Gregory Net Worth: Dick Gregory is an American civil rights activist along with a comedian who has a net worth of $8 Million. He is of African-American origins, and was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He grew up as a poor student, but managed to excel at running. He went ahead to establish school records for running for half, and one miles. In 1954, his college education was interrupted when he was asked to join the military. It was during his time in the military that he got started as a comedian, going on to win several Army talent shows. After 2 years in the military, Dick went back to school, but later dropped out. He believed that the university was more interested in him running, as opposed to his academics. Following is newborn passion for humor, Dick became part of a brand new generation of black comics, including the likes of Bill Cosby. Most of his comedic content was racial issues and current events. Dick would work for the post office through the day, and perform at all-black clubs at night Nonetheless, he soon got jobs performing for all-white crowds and was once seen by Hugh Hefner performing some content. Hugh was impressed to the idea of hiring Dick to work at the Chicago Playboy Club. His stints in politics saw him attempt to run for presidency in 1968, but he lost. He became an outspoken critic as well as feminist. Gregory is married to wife, Lillian, and has 10 children with her.

#Quote
1[on Lenny Bruce] This guy is the eighth wonder of the world. You have to go back to Mark Twain to find anything remotely like him. And if they don't kill him or throw him in jail, he's liable to shake up the whole country.
2A Klaner (KKK) is a cat who gets out of bed in the middle of the night and takes his sheet with him.
3For a black man, there's no difference between the North and the South. In the South, they don't mind how close I get, as long as I don't get too big. In the North, they don't mind how big I get, as long as I don't get too close.
4To a heckler: Why do you heckle me? You want excitement? Go down to the NAACP and ask for the white washroom.
5The NAACP is a wonderful organization. Belong to it myself. But do you realize if tomorrow morning we had complete integration, all them cats would be out of work?
6People keep telling me about the white race and the black race - and it really doesn't make sense. I played Miami, met a fellow two shades darker than me - and his name was Ginsberg! Took my place in two sit-in demonstrations - nobody knew the difference. The he tried for a third lunch counter and blew the whole bit... asked for blintzes.
