The Wealth of Joe Tippet
Joe Tippett has a net worth estimated to be over $500,000, earned through success in acting. He’s appeared in television, film, and stage productions.
Joe grew up in Washington, D.C., and became set on pursuing an acting career from his early years. His first role came in 2006 when he was given a minor role in the romantic comedy film entitled “Gray Mattes”, which starred Heather Graham and Tom Cavanagh, and premiered in 2006 at the Hamptons International Film Festival. He wouldn’t gain any other significant acting project until four years later, when he became a part of the documentary called “Doctors of the Dark Side”; the show showcased how psychologists and physicians assisted in torturing prisoners.
Experts working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the US Army were used to help create techniques, and cover up the signs of torture on prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, as well as those in Abu Ghraib Prison. The documentary also used government memos to show how these doctors were essential to continue with the torture proceedings. After a few independent projects, he was cast as a guest in a few high-profile projects, including “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Blacklist”.
The latter aired on NBC, and follows a former Navy officer turned criminal who surrenders to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and uses a blacklist to help him gain immunity from any form of prosecution.
Rise to Prominence
In 2015, Joe starred in the musical entitled “Waitress”, which is based on a book written by Jessie Nelson. The book also takes inspiration from the film of the same name released in 2007. The music of the play was created by Sara Bareilles, and its story is about a waitress who is in an abusive relationship.
The waitress then finds herself in an affair, and tries to make her way out of her situation through winning a pie contest. The initial run of the play was successful, leading to it going to Broadway the following year. Around the same time, he also worked on the off-Broadway play entitled “Familiar” which was written by actress Danai Gurira. In 2018, he had one of his most notable television roles in “Rise”, appearing for a total of 10 episodes.
