While attending Lindblom High School in his hometown of Chicago, he formed his own comedy group named Mary Wong which was so popular that toured the various campuses. Apart from this, Lance Crouther performed solo as a stand-up comedian, touring Chicago’s clubs and bars as well as colleges. These ventures provided the basis for his net worth.

In order to pursue his comedy career full time, Crouther transferred to Los Angeles, California where he began appearing in comedies and writing TV pilot episodes for various shows. Some of his first acting engagements included a side role in one episode of “Lifestories” TV series, followed by several other appearances in movies such as “Talkin’ Dirty After Dark” (1991), “Class Act” (1992), and “Fear of a Black Hat” and “CB4” both in 1993.

  • [on his fame as Pootie Tang] People come up and yell. Most recently, I’m getting blinds in my apartment, and the blinds guy from Sears is measuring my window. A very nice brother. I tell him, ”Yeah, that’s great,” and he looks at me and says, ”Sepa-tai, sibi-ta, sepa-ta!” And I think, oh God, even the blinds guy.
  • [on Pootie Tang (2001)] On some level, you’re like a silent movie character. It was fun, but I’m a writer. I like to say funny stuff in English.
  • [on Pootie Tang (2001)] I was completely out of the loop on all this movie stuff. When somebody walked in and said Paramount and MTV were considering doing a Pootie Tang movie, I was like, you’ve got to be kidding. But I never thought we’d do the sketch more than once on the show in the first place. I guess I’m just worried about being famous only as Pootie Tang. My goal has always been to be a performer/writer, whereas here I’m primarily an actor. I want to be able to do stuff with me talking and not have people saying, ”No, we want you to speak the Pootie way!”
  • [on Pootie Tang’s costume] Oh no, I don’t dress like that. I’m all about shirts and shorts. When I first had to do it on the show it was rough, but when I got over it I was pretty much over it. You just hold up the clothes and go, oh God, I’ve got to do this. But I did get some gasoline and some matches in case anyone tried to ship that stuff to me.


  • Attended Lindblom High School in Chicago, Illinois.
  • Formed the sketch comedy group “Mary Wong” with Ali LeRoi.
