To begin with, the boy was raised in Moline by his parents Bernice and Darrell. From early childhood his idols were Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, and he dreamed of becoming a singer and dancer. He joined tap dancing, and won a local competition. Subsequently, he was invited to join the ensemble of travelling performers of Horace Heidt. After matriculation from high school, Berry joined the US Army.

Concerning Berry’s professional career, he landed the greater number of roles on television. Some of the most important roles as Dr. Kapish landed in the NBC medical drama “Dr. Kildare” (1961 – 1966), Joe Dalrymple in Ira Levin’s television adaptation of the novel “No Time for Sergeants” (1964 – 1965) and Captain Parmenter in the sitcom “F Troop” (1965 – 1967). Moreover, he starred as the main character in the spin-off of “The Andy Griffith Show” entitled “Mayberry R.F.D.” (1968 – 1978). It should be said that Ken Berry appeared as himself in a number of shows too, including “The Carol Burnett Show” (1968 – 1978), “The Art Linkletter Show” (1970) and “Ken Berry WOW Show” (1972). Berry starred opposite Vicki Lawrence in the television sitcom “Mama’s Family” (1983 – 1990) in which he portrayed Vinton Harper in more than 130 episodes. All contributed to his net worth.

Talking about feature films, Berry was seen in the comedy film “Herbie Rides Again” (1974) by Robert Stevenson, which was critically acclaimed and the box office grossed $38 million. Later, he created the roles of Zachary More in the film “Guardian of the Wilderness” (1976) and Frank in “The Cat from Outer Space” (1978).

In addition to working on television and feature films, Ken Berry owns a long list of theatre credits. He starred in the plays as “Billy Barnes Review” (1958), “Billy Barnes’ Hollywood” (1961) and other Billy Barnes plays. He also created the role of Captain Big Jim Warrington in the play “Little Mary Sunshine” (1961), Professor Harold Hill in “The Music Man” (1974) and John Smith in “Run for Your Wife” (1984).

Furthermore, Ken recorded several albums and appeared in a number of commercials advertising cigarettes, cars and other. To summarise, all the above mentioned engagements have added sums to the total size of Ken Berry’s net worth.

1Pratfalls and other physical comedy
1[on Vicki Lawrence] Vicki had become on "The Carol Burnett Show" one of the best sketch artists on television, She put on those glasses and a wig and a fat suit, and I bought it!
2[Mayberry was] a wonderful place to visit and people would fantasize about living there. It's a place like Brigadoon that shows up every hundred years. It's a place you dream about living, but you know it's fantasy and you don't care. I grew up among people very much like that -- a bigger town, but not much bigger -- and the neighborhood was very much like that and the people were very much like those characters. And it was fun for me to visit, too. It was one of my favorite half hours ever on television and that was long before I met Andy [Griffith].
3Fred Astaire was my big hero. As Gene Kelly articulated it, 'He's a phenomenon.' No human body has ever been able to move like that. I don't think people now really appreciate that fact -- that there has never been a human being who moved like that. I've never seen anything like it in my life and I don't think any of us ever will. I know just enough about dance to know how impossible it is to do what he did. It's a really 'sweat' job, the hard work. When it comes to dance, nobody has ever touched him before or since.
