How did Paul Zerdin Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on August 21, 1972, in London, UK, Paul Zerdin began to put on shows after a family friend gifted him a puppet theatre when he was ten years old. Fascinated with the hobby, he soon became obsessed with the art. By the time he was a teen, he had begun to develop his magic skills while working at a local magic shop. At the same time, he also worked as a children’s entertainer on the side.
Not long afterward, he made his television debut as a magician on BBC’s Tricky Business. From there, he eventually landed a two-year contract with Disney as a presenter for the kid’s program Rise and Shine—he was twenty at the time.
Trying his luck at a competition, he later participated in The Big Big Talent Show in 1996. To his pleasant surprise, he ultimately went on to win the entire thing by more than 100,000 votes. In addition to having come out as the winner, the experience had also introduced him to Nigel Lythgoe, a television producer who would pave his way for other television appearances on Generation Game and Tonight at the London Palladium.
Many years later, his popularity exploded once again after he won the tenth season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Not only did he receive a large cash prize as the winner, but he also had the chance to headline a show on the Las Vegas Strip.
Since winning the competition, he has also been featured on a few other TV programs such as Live! with Kelly, Home & Family, The Weekend in Vegas and Good Morning Britain. At one point, he also took part in Who Wants To Be a Millionaire’s Celebrity Week in 2016. In terms of acting, he recently played a small role in the film, Karts in Suzuka.
As far as his income goes, it’s probably safe to assume that the majority of his earnings comes from his shows and performances. In fact, he had just traveled and performed across the UK last year. For more information, you can check out his official website here.
