Dan Harmon Net Worth $5 Million

Dan grew up in his hometown, and went to Brown Deer High School in Brown Deer in a suburb of Milwaukee. Following his matriculation, Dan enrolled at Marquette University, and later for a brief time attended Glendale Community College.

Dan’s career started in 1996 when he joined the comedy sketch group ComedySportz, with Rob Schrab. He was also a part of The Dead Alewives, also with Rob, and the two worked together on the album “Take Down the Grand Master”.

His first television pilot was for “Heat Vision and Jack” in 1999, but didn’t come to prominence until 2007 when he co-created and wrote the series “The Sarah Silverman Program”, which ran for three years. In 2009 he reached stardom with his own series “Community”, which increased his net worth by a large degree.

Then in 2011 he created “Harmontown”, a live comedy show and a podcast, and the show has become a hit, which inspired Seeso to create the original animated series based on the show, entitled “HarmonQuest”, which has hosted a number of celebrities such as Kumail Nanjiani, Eric Idle, Jason Sudeikis, Ryan Stiles, among many others. Since making it to the national scene, Dan has put all his efforts into creating the animated fantasy adventure series “Ricky and Morty” (2013-2017), which follows the adventures of a mad scientist, Rick, and his grandson Morty. The series has been aired on Cartoon Network during their Adult Swim hours, and since the premiere has become a hit series.

Aside from his own shows and series, Dan has also worked on a number of other series, including “Water and Power”, “ChoseYourOwnSelectAVision.TV” and “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return”, among many others, all of which have increased his net worth.

Dan has also co-founded the TV station Channel 101, which airs short films of filmmakers from all over the world.

Dan is credited with developing the Story Circle technique in storytelling too, which consists of eight stages; firstly, the main character is in a zone of comfort or familiarity, secondly stage our protagonist desires something, and enters an unfamiliar situation which is the stage three of the concept. The character now adapts to the newfound situation in stage four, and in the fifth stage gets what he wants, but in stage six he pays a heavy price. The technique continues with the return to the beginning, but now our lead is a different personality. His technique received mixed critiques, but has been incorporated in a number of successful series, including the award-winning drama “Breaking Bad”, among other creations.

When it comes to his personal life, Dan is in a relationship with writer Cody Heller. He was previously married to Erin McGathy from November 2014 until November 2015.
