Handler attended Hendrick Hudson High School, and matriculated a year early, after which he moved to New York City, and would become part of Chelsea Theater Center as an intern. He would appear in several off-Broadway plays including “Strider: The Story of a Horse” and “Biography: A Game”. He then attended the Juilliard School, and became part of the Drama Division’s “Group 12” which at that time included future star Kevin Spacey. He then left the program after two years to become part of the film “Taps”.

Since then, he’s appeared in numerous sitcoms and series, including “Friends’, “Sex and the City”, “Miami Vice”, “Ed”, “Six Feet Under” and “24”. He became the co-star of the series “It’s Like You Know…” which was about life in Los Angeles through the eyes of a New Yorker. He also appeared in the series “Hot Properties” which was often compared to “Sex and the City” and “Designing Women”. Afterwards, he starred in the sitcom “Woops!” which was short lived, but all contributed to his net worth.

Evan has also had a few film projects since “Taps”; these include “The Chosen” which is based on a bestseller of the same name, and would win three awards during the Montreal World Film Festival. He also appeared in the film “Ransom” which was a major financial and critical success. Evan’s net worth was steadily increasing at this point.

In 2000, he then portrayed Larry Fine for the television biopic of “The Three Stooges” before becoming a part of “Californication”. He’s also had a recurring role in “American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson”.

Aside from acting, Handler authored the book “Time on Fire: My Comedy of Terrors” which talked about his battle with acute myeloid leukemia during his mid-20s. He followed it up with “Only Temporary…The Good News and the Bad News of Being Alive” which talks about his life after the illness. He’s also written for high profile magazines including “ELLE” and “The Oprah Magazine”, and is a regular contributor to “The Huffington Post”. His writing efforts have helped in building his net worth too.

For his personal life, it is known that Handler married chemist Elisa Atti in 2003, and they have a daughter. His brother Lowell Handler is the author of the book “Twitch & Shout: A Touretter’s Tale” and the star of the documentary “Twitch & Shout”.

6In an interview on the NPR show "Talk of the Nation", Handler said that during negotiations with various Hollywood studio executives who were interested in optioning Handler's first book, "Time on Fire: My Comedy of Terrors", to be adapted into a movie, one agent tried to sign Handler by presenting the possibility that the movie might later get turned into a ride at Busch Gardens Amusement Park. "Time on Fire" is about Handler's long, difficult, and painful treatment for acute myeloid leukemia, and his anger at what he saw as the inhumanity of modern medical treatment. Handler joked to "Talk of the Nation" journalist Neal Conan that the ride might have been called "Patients of the Caribbean".
7While in his mid-20s and very ill with a likely-fatal type of leukemia, one of the hospital chaplains performed an ancient Jewish ritual on him in which his name was changed to fool the Angel of Death into not knowing who to come for. The name on his new birth certificate was "Chaim".
