Jeff Fatt, famous as a member of the children's musical comedy troupe The Wiggles, has a net worth of $2.5 million. In addition to his net worth, he has a legion of young fans who know him for his laid back demeanor and his penchant for falling asleep at inopportune times. His career began in the 1980s, when he was a part of the band The Cockroaches, which is generally considered to be the precursor to The Wiggles. In the early 1990s, The Cockroaches disbanded, and Fatt was asked by fellow Wiggle Anthony Field to help record the first Wiggles album. Although Fatt was unenthusiastic about the project at first, he went on to become an integral member of the group, having created the popular character Henry the Octopus (in addition to performing as Henry's voice) and inspired one of The Wiggles' songs entitled "Wake Up, Jeff!" Fatt was uncomfortable around children during the early years of The Wiggles, and considered those early shows highly traumatic. Fatt's famous "sleeping" schtick came from Fatt's real life proclivity for grabbing cat naps in between shows. The Wiggles continue to be a popular children's TV program, both in their native land of Australia and abroad.
Jeffrey Wayne "Jeff" Fatt AM (born 21 July 1953 in Casino, New South Wales, Australia), is a Chinese Australian musician and actor. He is best known as a member of the children's band The Wiggles and the 1980s and 90s band The Cockroaches. As part of the Wiggles, Fatt became one of the "most popular Asian performers in the world".
The son of Chinese parents who owned a large retail store in Casino, New South Wales, Fatt had aspirations to become an architect, and earned a Bachelor of Arts in industrial design. He opened a public address equipment business with his brother in Sydney when he began playing keyboard for the rockabilly band The Roadmasters, and was recruited by Anthony and Paul Field to join The Cockroaches.
After The Cockroaches disbanded in the early '90s, Anthony Field asked Fatt, who was renovating his house at the time, to help them record The Wiggles' first album in 1991. Fatt reported, "I got this call from Anthony: 'Hello, Anthony. Go away, go away. I'm not interested,' you know. He's always got these ideas for things. He said, 'I've got this idea, come down to the studio.'" Fatt's response to Field's request was, "How long will it take?"
As a Wiggle, Fatt wears a purple shirt. He originated the Wiggles character Henry the Octopus, and performed his voice when other actors took over the role. His schtick was sleeping at odd times, which led to a Wiggles' catch-phrase and the title of one of their songs, "Wake Up, Jeff!" Fatt is the oldest Wiggle and is well-known for his "laid-back personality". As Sam Moran has said, when referring to the development of The Wiggles' shticks, "Jeff really does fall asleep", and Fatt reported, "The irony is I'm a very light sleeper in the nighttime. I will invariably have a snooze before the show". Fatt was the only member of The Wiggles without a background in early childhood education; he stated that was the reason falling asleep was chosen as his shtick, "because it was a way of getting me involved in
