SNL Appearance Made Cheri Oteri a Millionaire

As we all know, the SNL star Cheri Oteri, who appeared in the show for around 5 years, has an estimated total net worth of about $2 million as of 2019. Her primary source of income is her acting career while she also made cash from her voice roles and other professions.

Prior to being cast in the Saturday Night Live, Oteri was a part of the comedy troupe, The Groundlings alongside Will Ferrell. But, later on, Cheri left the troupe and joined the SNL members.

SNL Casting; What’s Next?

In 1995, the SNL producers wanted to cast Chris Kattan from The Groundlings so, they attended one of their performances. While it was time for Kattan to change, Oteri took to the stage to perform a monologue, and that was it!

Quick Fact: Jimmy Fallon and Horatio Sanz came only in the 1998/99 season, meaning, Oteri is older to them in context of the show.

While she was in the SNL cast since 1995, her career in the movie industry began two years later since 1997. Her debut movie was Liar Liar as Jane.

One of her critically acclaimed movies was Scary Movie in 2000 where she appeared as the TV reporter Gail Hailstorm. Overall, the lady has appeared in as much as 69 films and TV shows.
