Eric Idle Net Worth: How rich is Eric Idle?

Eric Idle is an English actor, comedian, musician and writer. Idle is a former member of the British surreal comedy group Monty Python and the parody rock band The Rutles, and is the writer of the music and lyrics for the Broadway musical Spamalot (based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail).

Known for his elaborate wordplay and musical numbers, Idle performed many of Python’s songs, including “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” (from Life of Brian), and the “Galaxy Song” (from The Meaning of Life).

Idle’s initially successful solo career faltered in the 1990s with the failures of his 1993 film Splitting Heirs (which he wrote, produced, and starred in) and 1998’s An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn (in which he starred).

He revived his career by returning to the source of his worldwide fame, adapting Monty Python material for other media. Following the success of the musical Spamalot (which won the Tony Award for Best Musical), he also wrote Not the Messiah, an oratorio derived from the Life of Brian.

Eric Idle is an English comedian, composer, singer, and actor with an estimated net worth of $60 million. Most of Idle’s revenues come courtesy of his involvement in the genesis of ‘Spamalot’, the worldwide stage smash which continues to rake in the money.

In fact, of all the Pythons, Idle is the most likely to carry on up this list because of the seemingly neverending success of the musical.

He also continues his musical noodlings off-stage, providing the main song for 2014’s ‘The Boxtrolls’, which grossed £69million worldwide.
