John Hodgman was a son of John Francis Hodgman, a professor at Tufts University and the President and CEO of the Massachusetts Technology Development Corporation, and Eileen, a nurse and educator. He grew up in Massachusetts where he went to Heath School and Brookline High School, meantime working as a host of a radio show on the local station. Hodgman studied literature at Yale University, from where he graduated in 1994. Before establishing himself as a writer, John worked as a literary agent at Writers House in New York City – the base for his net worth was already laid.

His writing career took-off in the 2000s; when he published his debut book in 2005 entitled “The Areas of My Expertise”, and soon after he appeared on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart to promote his new book. In 2006, Hodgman had a role in his first feature movie, called “Baby Mama” starring Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Sigourney Weaver. The next year he loaned his voice to Charlie Jones / Other Father in Henry Selick’s Oscar-nominated animation “Coraline”. In 2009, he appeared in Matthew Robinson’s and Ricky Gervais’ comedy “The Invention of Lying” alongside Gervais, Jennifer Garner, Jonah Hill, and Rob Lowe, and from 2009 to 2011, Hodgman played Louis Greene in eight episodes of the Primetime Emmy Award-winning series “Bored to Death” starring Jason Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis, and Ted Danson. His net worth was growing steadily.

In 2011, John had a part in “Arthur” with Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, and Jennifer Garner, while in 2013 he appeared in “The English Teacher” starring Julianne Moore, Michael Angarano, and Greg Kinnear. He continued with “Learning to Drive” (2014) alongside Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley, and was seen in Elizabeth Banks’ “Pitch Perfect 2” (2015). Most recently, Hodgman has played in 12 episodes of “Married” from 2014 to 2015, and in four episodes of “Red Oaks” in 2016, so his net worth is certainly still rising.

Hodgman has also published two additional books: “More Information Than You Require” in 2008, and “That Is All” in 2011. His numerous writings have appeared in “One Story”, “The Paris Review”, “McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern”, “Wired” and “The New York Times Magazine”, among others, all contributing to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, John Hodgman has been married to Katherine Fletcher since 1999, and has two children with her.

1People who run for president seriously and people who become president enter a bizarre secret society in which they have had an experience that none of us will ever have.
2Publishers, editors, agents all have one thing in common, aside from their love of cocktail parties. It's an incredible taste and an ability to find and nurture authors.
3When I listen to music - I don't particularly do it for fun all that much. It's not a big part of my life, and I'm not really on top of what's happening in the world of music in the way I was when I was a teenager.
4While I understand that all things must come to an end, whether it's a television advertisement or one's life or the world itself, it doesn't make it any easier to deal with.
5I think that obviously, there is a perverse attraction to a fundamentally changed world or the end of the world. There is a death wish, a perverse death wish. Not just for ourselves, not just for the movie 'Death Wish,' but for the end of all human life.
6If you look in the dictionary under 'perfectionist,' you see Henry Selick correcting the definition of perfectionist in the dictionary. I mean, he is so meticulous.
7In the '80s and '90s, I was really interested in, moved by, exhilarated by, and troubled by rap in all the ways a white person from Brookline, Massachusetts should be. That was music that was making trouble, and it was interesting and provocative trouble.
8Many people, many girls have tried to teach me the rules to football. And you would think that it would get in my head that way, but I just don't understand it.
9More people have more access to more readers for less money than ever before in history. It means a lot of dross; but it means a lot of very talented people can find and nurture a readership in ways that were not possible twenty years ago. From a creative perspective, that is all that writing is about.
10People forget how outcast 'They Might Be Giants' can be. They have a reputation for writing really deft, funny, clever melodies, and they also make a lot of music for kids, which is terrific, but when you see them in concert, they can rock the house.
11Comics have a problem, and that is continuity - the obsession with placing the characters in an existing world, where every event is marked in canon. You're supposed to believe that these weepy star boys of now are the same gung-ho super teens fighting space monsters in the '60s, and they've only aged perhaps five years.
12I do not think that a museum needs to engage with pop culture in order to make itself interesting to museum-goers. Museums are already interesting and engaging with pop culture for its own sake is just a quick way to seem and become dated.
13I feel that there is a decision people make to either engage in a legitimately ridiculous process to get your kid into school, or choose not to engage in that so much, and end up finding a nice local school that fits.
14I know electric knives are excellent for carving turkeys that have had their bones removed and been forced into a mold to shape them. Please note that those turkeys are called hams.
15For a long time, I would write without music, because I thought it was distracting until I appreciated that it actually unlocks a certain unconscious productivity vault in my mind.
16Here's the thing: I am not only a creature of civilization, I'm an asthmatic person. I will only live so long as I have stockpiled the proper inhalers. I'm effectively a cyborg. You know how in Jurassic Park, they bred those dinosaurs with the lysine deficiencies, so if they ever got off the island, they'd die? That's me.
17I am amused by cricket because it seems to take longer than baseball and I like that. It seems like a sport I could have made up it - it takes several days to play and everyone wears sweaters. I can't confess to knowing what's going on at all.
18My career as a magazine writer was largely prefaced on the idea of curiosity, to go on adventures and weasel my way into the lives of people that I admire.
19Not as many people watch 'Doctor Who' as watch the Super Bowl, obviously, but the tropes that attract nerds are no longer a secret cult. It's a much larger culture, in the specific sense.
20The few people who ask to have their photographs with me, I almost always say yes, except for a few circumstances, like when my family is around.
21The most important book on the Internet is, essentially, the Internet.
22There's a tradition in American fiction that is deadly serious and earnest - like the Steinbeckian social novel.
23Well, I always had this desire to celebrate and somehow be a part of things that I thought were really great.
24As a freelance writer, I'd be asked to become an expert for various magazines on any subject, whether food or wine or history or the life span of veterinarians. I was completely unschooled in any of these things.
25I have a lot of cultural references that have amassed in my brain like shrapnel over the years that are meaningful to me.
26I would be good for maybe not the center square but an upper square on 'Hollywood Squares.'
27I'm a personality - like a George Plimpton who effectively plays himself in a bunch of different roles, or a Paul Lynde-type character.
28My fame is due to broadcast television.
29Part of the transaction between writer and reader is the pleasure of building a community and encouraging people to play along.
30Generally speaking, I, like anyone else who does anything publicly, like it when people like what I do, and would like to hear as much.
31Hosting a TV show is a full-time job in which success is defined by it never ending.
32I actually own a copy of my own book; that's how dedicated I am as an author.
33I am not an Internet superstar.
34I am someone who values truth - actual truth as opposed to 'truthiness.'
35Any time you try to create an Internet meme, automatic fail. That's like the worst thing you can do.
36As you know, the thing that I know the least about is the topic of sports.
37Comedy does offer an avenue to television and film careers for untelegenic people that great drama does not.
38Creating fake facts does require a measure of haphazard research, insofar as they need to not just be possible, but also interesting.
39Everyone wants to write a book. Very few people are able to do it.
40Most people presume my mustache is not real because it's much darker than my regular hair.
41My biggest superhero of writing is Jorge Luis Borges, the Argentine fabulist. He's an amazingly perceptive writer, but also willing to make a joke.
42It seems that every generation needs its public, tweedy, literary personality to sell its consumer electronics. To whatever degree I can live up to the Plimptonian legacy, I am humble and proud.
43One can always come up with funny lists and jokes. You know what? I take it back. Not everyone can always come up with funny lists and some jokes. I'm very lucky to have a gift where I can do that pretty ably.
44All books should be trilogies; I mean I think we all agree on that.
45All I can ask from society is that it please stop telling me why I should like sports.
46What would I put in a museum? Probably a museum! That's an amusing relic of our past.
47When you think about it, the end of the world is a little bit like death: We all know it's going to come eventually, and as we get older, we feel we see the signs more and more distinctly.
48A lot of my time is spent reading antique or out-of-print books of reference.
49It would be rather naive to imagine that Oprah doesn't have an Earth Evacuation Plan. You know Richard Branson does - his is in plain sight.
50A lot of media that that I want to consume, I don't want to have to own forever and ever. It's not like real estate.
51I know nothing about letting go.
52First of all, I wish I could grow a beard.
53My type of humor is me not caring whether people know what I'm talking about or not.
54The villain of any story is often the most compelling character.

7Is the first person on The Daily Show (1996) to be a guest on the show before joining the cast.
