Emily Tarver is an actor, comedian and musician.

Tarver has performed as a cast member of VH1's series "Best Week Ever"[1] and performs stand-up and improvisational comedy in a variety of venues, including the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre,[2] and is a singer in the band Summer and Eve.[3] She has starred as "Emily" in a series of American television commercials for the furniture company Havertys,[4] and has appeared in national commercials for Lowe's, Comcast, Publix, AT&T, and Yoplait, among others. One Yoplait commercial starring Tarver was pulled from broadcast following complaints by the National Eating Disorders Association. Tarver responded "So they pulled my yogurt ad because it 'promotes eating disorders'. Ironically, now I will not be able to afford to eat."[5]

In July 2018, it was confirmed that Tarver is in a relationship with her Orange Is the New Black co-star Vicci Martinez.[6][7]
