Who is Larry Storch’s wife?
The unique and special Norma Catherine Greve was married to Larry Storch. In Pocatello, Idaho, Norma was born on April 6th, 1922.
Their marriage included Norma, who was a seasoned actress, so Larry wasn’t their only successful actor. She actually played the lead in a lot of different productions, including The Perils of P.K., The Woman Hunter, and The Six Million Dollar Man. At the age of 23, Norma moved to Los Angeles in an effort to break into the business. It paid off, as her career in the film industry soon followed.
On July 10th, 1961, Larry and Norma exchanged vows. The couple was blissfully wed until Norma’s passing in 2003. Following a cancer diagnosis, the 81-year-old died in her Manhattan home.
A net worth exploration of Larry Storch
Larry Storch’s net worth, as of 2022, was estimated by Celebrity Net Worth to be around $1 million. Given how many productions Larry appeared in over the course of his career, this net worth makes sense.
Having starred in films and television shows like The Queen and The Ghostbusters, the 99-year-old undoubtedly did well for himself. Not to mention his voice work on shows like The Pink Panther Show, The Batman/Superman Hour, Koko the Clown, Scooby-Doo, Treasure Island, and Groovie Goolies.
Alfred Storch, a real estate broker, and his wife Sally, a telephone operator, are his parents of Larry. Jay Storch, who went by the stage name Jay Lawrence, was his brother and also a member of the entertainment industry. Don Adams and Larry were in the same class at DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx, and they remained friends after Adams’ passing in 2005. Larry was unable to complete his high school education due to the Great Depression, which made it necessary for him to find a job in order to provide for his family.
In Sheepshead Bay, he performed as a comic for Al Donahue for $12 a week. Later, Larry served in the US Navy during World War II on the submarine tender USS Proteus.
Upon receiving his release from the Navy, Larry began pursuing a career as a comedian, which eventually led to his appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1949, and until 1952, featured him a few more times. He kept appearing in variety shows in the early 1950s, including “Your Show of Shows” (1952) and “Cavalcade of Stars” (1950–1952). In 1953, he launched his own program, “The Larry Storch Show.” He made his first appearance on “The Jack Paar Tonight Show” in 1959, and by 1962, he had done so nine times in total. His appearances on numerous other shows, including the wildly popular “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” where he appeared 16 times between 1962 and 1972, only helped to boost his popularity and wealth.
He made his acting debut in the 1951 movie “The Prince Who Was a Thief,” and since then, Larry has appeared in more than 230 movies and television shows. Larry also started a career in voice acting. He played a part in Arthur Dreifuss’ war drama “The Last Blitzkrieg” in 1959, and in George Sydney’s romantic comedy “Who Was That Lady,” which was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and starred Tony Curtis, Dean Martin, and Janet Leigh, he played the title role.
He voiced Koko the Clown in 100 episodes in the early 1960s, which undoubtedly helped him boost his fame and net worth.
In the animated television series “Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales” in 1963, he was chosen to play Phineas J. Whoopee (1963-1967). In the television series “F Troop” (1965–1967), Larry was cast two years later as Cpl. Randolph Agarn. He then played Charles Duffy in 13 episodes of “The Queen and I” (1969), further boosting his financial standing.
Performing in plays like “Porgy and Bess,” “Arsenic and Old Lace,” and “Annie Get Your Gun,” Larry also found success on the stage. Recently, he went on tour with Richard Dreyfuss and Irwin Corey for the productions of “Love Letters” in 2012 and “Sly Fox” in 2004.
