Steve was born one of five children to Marian Coppola Higgins, a cosmetologist, and Harold Higgins, a head of custodial operations for the West Des Moines schools, and had shown interest in comedy and discovered his talent at an early age. Alongside his brothers, David Anthony Higgins and Alan J. Higgins, as well as mutual friend Dave Allen, he formed the comedy troupe Don’t Quit Your Day Job in 1988. Prior to moving to Los Angeles, California and making some real success in the comedy business, the crew toured across Iowa and performed in various notable places, including Hotel Kirkwood in his hometown. These engagements provided the basis for Steve Higgins later net worth.

The big break came in 1990 when they appeared on the Comedy Central with sketch series The Higgins Boys and Gruber. The next few years Steve spent performing in various clubs in Hollywood, before in 1995 he began writing for “Saturday Night Live” in which he also served as a producer of the show. In 2008, Steve Higgins was honored with two Emmy Awards nominations, for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program for this engagement, and in 2013 he won a Primetime Emmy Award for his contribution to SNL. Besides helping him to gain popularity, it has also helped Steve to add a significant sum to his overall net worth.

Between 2009 and 2014, Steve Higgins worked as an announcer on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”. Since 2014, after Jay Leno was succeeded by Jimmy Fallon, Steve Higgins has transferred to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and continued to serve as an announcer, constantly increasing his net worth.

In his dynamic comedy career, apart from those mentioned Steve Higgins has also landed several other writing gigs, such as for “The Jon Stewart Show, Stewart and Trashed”. Some of the more recent Steve Higgins’ works include voicing Mr. Awesome in “The Awesomes” as well as “The Edible Blargmonger”, character in “Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas”, 2014 animated special.
