Il a la particularité d'avoir joué ce rôle dans huit séries différentes : New York, unité spéciale, Homicide, X-Files, The Beat , New York, police judiciaire, New York, cour de justice, Arrested Development et Sur écoute.
Il a aussi animé l'émission de télévision Hot Properties (un « talk show »).
Richard Belzer est aussi le cousin de l'acteur Henry Winkler.
Belzer's first two marriages were to Gail Susan Ross (1966–72) and boutique manager Dalia Danoch (1976 – c. 1978), both of which ended in divorce. In 1981 in Los Angeles he met 31-year-old Harlee McBride, a divorcee with two daughters, Bree Benton and Jessica. McBride, who had been seen in Playboy magazine four years earlier in that year's sex-in-cinema feature, in conjunction with Young Lady Chatterley, was appearing in TV commercials for Ford motors and acting in free theater, when she met Belzer at the suggestion of a friend. The two married in 1985.
Belzer survived testicular cancer in 1983. His HBO special and comedy CD Another Lone Nut pokes fun at this as well as his status as a well-known conspiracy theorist.
On March 27, 1985, days prior to the inaugural WrestleMania, Belzer requested on his cable TV talk show Hot Properties that Hulk Hogan demonstrate one of his signature wrestling moves. After being asked by Belzer, Hogan put Belzer in a front chin-lock, which caused Belzer to pass out. When Hogan released him, Belzer hit his head on the floor, sustaining a laceration to the scalp that required a brief hospitalization.
Belzer sued Hogan for $5 million and settled out of court. On October 20, 2006, on Bubba the Love Sponge, it was claimed (with Hogan in the studio) that the settlement totaled $5 million, half from Hogan and half from Vince McMahon. During his June 23, 2008, appearance on Sirius Satellite Radio's The Howard Stern Show, Belzer suggested that the settlement amount was closer to $400,000. He used the incident in his HBO special Another Lone Nut in his stand-up routine.
Belzer's older brother, Len Belzer (age 73) committed suicide in the early morning hours of July 30, 2014, by jumping from the 16th floor of his New York City luxury apartment building. Initial reports of Richard Belzer's death were incorrect.
Belzer is a cousin of actor Henry Winkler.
