Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – John Early

John Early has been described as "endearingly honest and absurdly funny" by The New York Times, "a cross between Dennis the Menace and Christopher Guest" by PAPER Magazine and  "cute and young and blonde" by The Huffington Post. He'll be appearing soon in Neighbors 2 opposite Dave Franco, as well as the Netflix original series Love, executive produced by Judd Apatow. Early recently created and starred in a comedy special for Netflix, playing a variety of original characters, and he is a guest star in season five of HBO's Girls. You may have already seen him in Broad City, High Maintenance, Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail and 30 Rock.

Early is playing a one-off show in London this Thursday at The Moth Club joined by Ben Champion and Tash (Demetriou) & Ellie (White). And hey, best of all, tickets are absolutely free, though it may be a good idea to email and book in advance. Details here. Read our endearing honest interview with Early below.
