Early life

McBrayer was born in Macon, Georgia, grew up in Conyers, Georgia, and studied theater at the University of Evansville.

Career

McBrayer has performed several times on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, where he played a page, often lampooning his own Southern upbringing by playing a stereotypical hillbilly. On August 10, 2007 and September 20, 2008 he made cameo appearances, playing his character (Kenneth Parcell) from 30 Rock. During the first appearance, O'Brien remarked to him, "I thought you were above this now." McBrayer also reprised his Kenneth the Page role twice (November 24, 2009, and January 13, 2010) after O'Brien's switch to the Tonight Show.

McBrayer also had a minor recurring role as a waiter at the Bluth family's country club in Arrested Development.

In 2008, Jack McBrayer was featured throughout the video for Touch My Body by Mariah Carey. During the shooting for the video, it is reported Jack hit Mariah in the face with a Frisbee. The Frisbee was dropped from the shoot after her bodyguard came and explained to him that he should probably be more careful.[2]

McBrayer also appears in the first episode in the fifth season of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! as a spokesman in a spoof advertisement for the "Diarrhea-phragm", a device from the fictional Cinco Corporation that plugs up a person's colon to stop diarrhea from passing through, to avoid potentially embarrassing situations where one might accidentally release diarrhea from their bowels(such as a wedding).[3] The device proves to be effective, however, users eventually develop “Diarrhea-betes”, which causes brown sweat, itching, and a host of unpleasant symptoms resulting from a buildup of diarrhea in the body.

Upcoming projects

McBrayer will next be seen in a sequel to the film Cats and Dogs, and will be co-starring with Chris O'Donnell. Jack McBrayer will be playing a recurring role on the third season of the hit Disney Channel original series, Phineas and Ferb. He will be playing the part of Irving,an annoying fan of Phineas and Ferb's work.
