Now a famous comedian and Twitter sensation, Jaboukie Young-White badly failed in his first attempt of an open mic representation. He was about 19 years old when his friend signed him up for an open mic show. Jaboukie mentioned that his performance went bad, but he learned many new things from there.
After the show, Jaboukie’s friend took him by the side and told him that Jaboukie’s problem was that he put his hand into many things but never focused on one particular stuff.
Those words hit him so severely that Jaboukie immediately decided that he was doing stand-up for a lifetime.
The primary cause of his early success was Jaboukie’s hilarious social media posts that rose his fandom to the peak. This hence, also helped him get featured in a “25 under 25” piece by Rolling Stone in 2017.
Further, Jaboukie’s humor, along with his personality got him the offer to join the Comedy Central channel. So, the man ended up joining The Daily Show with Trevor Noah as a show correspondent.
As of now, Jaboukie works as a Senior Youth Correspondent for The Daily Show. His actual salary from the show cannot be assured, but generally, as a comedian, he supposedly earns an average salary of $61K.
Further, from the salary he earns, Jaboukie must have already amassed a satisfying amount of net worth.
