Actor and Comedian John Early is Taking Over All Your Screens / MAXIM

John Early

John Early is literally on fire — there are more flames coming off of him than a young Divine in Pink Flamingos. The young actor-comedian is everywhere—from scoring a Netflix Special titled The Characters to a major role in TBS’s Search Party as well as appearances in Judd Apatow’s show Love and Seth Rogen’s new Neighbors 2. John is also known for his role as hyper-competitive musical theater kid Logan in the hit show, Wet Hot American Summer. On top of all that John is flamboyantly and joyously himself in collaborations with BFF Kate Berlant while somehow still managing to host three comedy shows in New York, where he lives.

With Neighbors 2 hitting screens on May 20, and Search Party premiering May 13, we caught up with Early to talk about his comedy repertoire, his childhood growing up in Nashville, his collaborative relationship with Berlant, and what it’s been like working on longer-form, more structured TV shows and films.
