Whatever Happened to Pootie from Pootie Tang?

When the “Chris Rock Show,” first introduced the world to a small sketch featuring Pootie Tang, no one knew what might happen from that point on. No one knew that a film would be written from that one sketch. No one knew that it would be a huge hit. No one knew that it would make Lance Crouther famous. Perhaps the likes of Louis C.K., who directed and wrote the movie, and Chris Rock, who produced it, had an inkling of what might happen, but no one knew what this movie would do for Lance Crouther – or as we like to call him, Pootie Tang. But, in the 20 years since the movie was released, a lot has changed in Hollywood. Where is Crouther now?

Lance Crouther’s Life

Lance Crouther is a man who doesn’t share too much about his life. He’s not all that interested in everyone knowing everything there is to know about him. From what little we can ascertain about his life before he took on the role of Pootie Tang, he is a man who was born in the early 60s. His exact date of birth is unknown, but he was born in May of 1962, which means he’s well on his way to celebrating his 60th birthday. What never fails to come across as a surprise is the fact that despite starring as Pootie Tang in the hit movie, Lance Crouther is not so much an actor. He’s had a few roles in a few things, but most of them are appearances in comedy-based television shows. This is his only main role, his biggest role, and the basic synopsis of his acting career. Lance Crouther is, however, a writer. He’s been a writer for a long time, and he’s worked with some of the most hilarious men and women in the business. He’s worked for many years with Chris Rock. He’s worked on shows such as “Down to Earth,” “Good Hair,” and “Wanda at Large,” but he’s more of a behind-the-scenes kind of guy. Give him a pen and some paper – or a laptop and a printer – and he’s happy to write. At the end of the day, his role in life is to write. He, alongside Chris Rock, Chuck Sklar, and Jeff Stilson, were once nominated by the Writer’s Guild of America for the Best Documentary Screenplay for, “Good Hair”. He’s a writer. Lance Crouther has been writing since the 90s. He’s written for some of the most famous shows around, including the following:

  • The Gregory Hines Show
  • The Chris Rock Show
  • Down to Earth
  • The Wayne Brady Show
  • The 55th Primetime Emmys
  • The 77th Academy Awards
  • Barbershop
  • Everybody Hates Chris
  • Real Time with Bill Maher
  • Lopez Tonight
  • Wanda Sykes Present Hilarious
  • BET Awards
  • Last Comic Standing
  • Saturday Night Live
  • The Oscars
  • Def Comedy Jam
  • Lights Out with David Spade

Lance Crouther Since Pootie Tang

Since his 2001 acting debut, he’s been a busy man. Lance Crouther may not have taken on any major acting roles since then, but he’s been busy writing. As mentioned above, he’s been very busy writing for some of the biggest shows on television. He’s also been busy accumulating an impressive net worth. So far, he’s managed to amass a net worth of approximately $5 million, though we imagine that he might actually have more than that. As far as his personal life is concerned, we have to hand it to Lance Crouther. He doesn’t discuss it. He keeps what is going on in his personal life very much to himself. He doesn’t post to social media about it. He’s not photographed out and about by the press. He’s not mentioning anything, and he rarely does interviews. He keeps his private life very much to himself, and we imagine that it’s a good thing. As a comedy writer, the people who are in his life are probably at least a small source of his inspiration – and we imagine they don’t want the world to know that. From what we can find out about him, he’s busy writing, making money, being hilarious, and not talking about anyone personally involved with his life. While we could be entirely wrong and he might have a wife and 7 kids he’s kept quiet at home, it seems more likely that he’s a single man. He doesn’t appear to have any children, either. But, again, he’s good at keeping his personal life personal – and we just want to add that is a nice thing to do when you’re famous.Wanda Sykes
