Jack Dee’s net worth explored
Born into a “comfortable” life as per The Telegraph, Jack’s father was an executive in a paper firm.
While his home life was happy, Jack didn’t do so well at school and, speaking to The Telegraph, said his school days were “quite dysfunctional“. Jack added: “I think possibly, knowing myself better now, the anger was to do with creative frustration. I had no outlet for my creativity.”
