An American actor and comedian, Jack Mcbrayer was born on May 27, 1983 in Georgia and later moved to Virginia at the age of 15. He started gaining popularity from the show ‘Late Night with Conan O'Brien’. His biography and the story behind how he slowly became a common name in Hollywood is quite interesting.
After studying theatre administration at the Evansville University, he began working at The Second City and IO Theatre in 1995. He continued working there till 2002, where he gained a lot of experience and was also introduced to Tina Fey. Later, he bagged a role in her show, 30 Rock. He produced some of his best performances in this show as a character named Kenneth Parcell. In fact, he was even nominated for Emmy award in 2009 due to his notable performance in the TV series.
He was also active in Late Night with Conan O'Brien, where he appeared in more than 80 sketches. There were also a couple of cameo appearances that he made on that show as Kenneth Parcel, his character in 30 Rock. He even made another couple of appearances later after O’Brien moved to The Tonight Show. He has also appeared in Conan's Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour in California, Oregon, Eugene, and Atlanta. In 2008, he was shown in the video “Touch My Body” by Mariah Carey. There are also reports that he accidently hit Carey with a Frisbee while shooting.
Some of the most noteworthy movies he has participated in include Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006), Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010), Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) and The Campaign (2012). For providing the voice of Fix-It-Felix Jr. in the animated movie, Wreck-It Ralph, he received several accolades due to his commendable performance.

He also appeared recently in Kia advertisements with Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin, and also in an advertisement for Barnes & Noble in 2013.
He has a huge fan following in social media sites such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and is well known for his childlike and polite nature.
Although he has attained a lot of success in the past decade or so, his personal life is quite lacklustre and dull, unlike most popular Hollywood actors. Despite being 42 years old, Jack never had a wife. It’s really hard to believe that a successful guy like Jack with such a cute smile and amazing personality has never been married. He had quite a few girlfriends in the past, but there is no news regarding his current dating situation. There is a lot of speculation regarding who he might be dating, but he has never revealed any such information about this matter.
Jack McBrayer has an estimated net worth of $6 million as of November, 2015.
