John Early (born January 21, 1988) is an American comedian and actor. He has appeared on 30 Rock as Jenna Maroney's son and in the independent film Fort Tilden. He stars in Search Party, which was written partly by Michael Showalter and also stars Alia Shawkat.
Early is from Nashville, Tennessee. His father was a Presbyterian minister; his mother, a minister of the Disciples of Christ. He attended the University School of Nashville. He graduated from New York University where he majored in Acting. When he was 11, he became a big fan of Australian actress Toni Collette and ran a fan website devoted to her after seeing her in Clockwatchers, Muriel's Wedding and The Sixth Sense.
Early was featured on Lauren Lapkus' podcast (Episode #41, August 28, 2015), as well as Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which was released on Netflix in the summer of 2015. He tours around the country with his stand-up/variety show "Literally Me" and also hosts a monthly variety event (called Showgasm) at Ars Nova in New York City. He has made voice appearances on two episodes of Bob's Burgers as brunch blogger Dalton Crespin.
Early frequently collaborates with comedians such as Hamm Samwich and Kate Berlant in a variety of sketch and filmed presentations. In 2016, he wrote and starred in his own 30-minute episode of the sketch show Netflix Presents: The Characters. He also had a small role as Evan in the 2017 comedy Beatriz at Dinner, starring Salma Hayek and John Lithgow.. In 2019, Early appeared in the music video "Squidward Nose" by Cupcakke.
Vanity Fair describes Early's character Elliot on Search Party as a "narcissistic 20-something who runs a questionable water bottle charity...a baby-boomer’s worst nightmare—gossiping over brunch, making up dramatic stories for attention" and calls him "one of the best parts."
