Favorite Quotes from Charlie Day 

“I first started acting I was going to like this theater festival called the Williamstown Theater Festival and then moved to New York and I was only getting parts on Law and Order and this cops and firemen show called Third Watch and I was always playing like a junkie or an informant and I couldn’t get casted in comedies.” – Charlie Day 

“Yeah, I think so. I want to do it all. I want to do it all because I just like doing it.” – Charlie Day 

“I had a fight sequence, right? I’m fairly a straight man through the first half of the movie surrounded by Tracy and Jillian and all these crazy people and then I get to slowly unravel, so sometimes I get all those elements even out of a comedic movie.” – Charlie Day 

“Comedic duos, I mean I like John Candy and Steve Martin when they’re together. Oh, Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. I love that duo. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler I think it’s one of my favorite duos up there.” – Charlie Day 

“There’s so many but do it is tricky but I’m just a fan of so many different people’s comedy.” – Charlie Day 

 

3 Great Lessons from Charlie Day 

Charlie Day Success Lessons

Now that you know all about Charlie Day’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the best lessons we can learn from him: 

 

1. There Is No Task Too Menial

Mopping floors. Cleaning toilets. Changing kegs. Catching rats. It’s all in a day’s work for Charlie Kelly. In fact, these day-to-day janitorial tasks that keep Paddy’s Pub running are actually referred to as “Charlie Work.”

Neither Dee, Dennis, Mac, or Frank want to roll up their sleeves to do the grunt work that Charlie does on a regular basis. Charlie teaches us that even the smallest, grossest, most disgusting and degrading tasks are necessary to keep things running smoothly. Thanks, Charlie!

 

2. Persistence is Key

Never give up. Those three words have been a mantra for Charlie throughout most of his life. In high school, his Green Man mascot idea was pooh-pooh’d.

That didn’t stop him from continually resurrecting his all-green bodysuit to trot out Green Man at a Philadelphia Eagles audition (“The Gang Gets Invincible”) or to throw down a challenge to the (also green) Philly Phanatic for baseball mascot supremacy (“The World Series Defense”).

 

3. Emotional Turmoil Is the Best Muse Ever!

Charlie has a little bit of an assist in the creative department by huffing glue or paint. Charlie encourages us to tap into our creative side and make artistic little lemons from life’s lemonade.
