Actor Jack McBrayer was born and grew up in the US state of Georgia, before going on to study theatre at the University of Evansville in Indiana. Following his education, he began working with improve comedy The Second City and at the IO Theater in Chicago.
McBrayer was first seen on mainstream American television in the early 2000s, when he would appear as several different characters in sketches on the talk show Late Night with Conan O’Brien, developing a unique comedy style.
In 2006, having established himself as a reliable comedy actor, and after meeting comedian Tina Fey through his earlier improv work in Chicago, McBrayer landed himself a role in her TV show 30 Rock.

On stage, McBrayer recently appeared in a one-night only concert performance of Crazy for You at the Lincoln Center in New York.
