During his early childhood, Flynn’s family moved to Waukegan, Illinois and he attended the Waukegan East High School. He won the Illinois Individuals Events championship for Humorous Duet Acting, a performance which was probably a sign of things to come. After graduating from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, he moved back to Chicago to begin his acting career.

Flynn’s professional career really started with various theater productions. He performed at Goodman and Steppenwolf Theaters, earning a nomination for the Joseph Jefferson Award for Actor in a Principal Role for “The Ballad of the Sad Cafe” in 1986. He also toured with a theater group called Second City Comedy Troupe, and went on to perform at Improv Olympic Theater. His television debut was the 1982 series “Brookside”, taking a minor role in one episode.

Flynn made his movie debut with the 1989 movie “Major League” playing the role of Longshoreman. He went on to appear in several movies during the 90s, including “Rookie of the Year”, “The Fugitive”, “Baby’s Day Out”, “Chain Reaction”, “Home Alone” and other. He also made many appearances in the 90s television series, such as “Early Edition”, “Seinfeld”, “Ellen”, “That 70s Show” and “Chicago Hope”, mostly having minor roles appearing in few episodes. However, with his various appearances, his net worth started to rise.

In 2001, Flynn auditioned for the role of Dr. Cox in the comedy series “Scrubs”. Instead of this role, he was cast in the role of a hospital custodian named Janitor, originally planned to last only for the pilot, however, his character remained as a series regular. The series is a medical comedy-based series portraying the lives of hospital employees, and was aired on NBC from 2001 to 2009, before ABC had picked it up for the last two seasons, and the series was canceled later in 2010. Flynn was cast in all eight seasons, and appeared as a guest star in the final ninth season. The series greatly contributed to actor’s wealth.

In the meantime, Flynn appeared in various other series of the 2000s, including “Clone High U.S.A.”, “Smallville”, “King of the Hill” and “Joey”. Since 2009 he has been cast as the lead male character in the comedy series “The Middle”, playing the role of family patriarch Mike Heck. The series is still in its run.

Flynn took part in several 2000s movies, such as “Mean Girls”, “Anchorman: The Legend Ron Burgundy”, “Sex and Death” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”; his roles are often those of a policeman. He has appeared in more than 20 movies and over 30 television series, which has given the actor a considerable reputation and earned him a significant net worth.

In addition to acting, Flynn has also done some voice-over work, such as for the 2001 Disney’s animated series called “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command”, the 2002 “Kim Possible”, as well as for the 2002 video game series Ratchet & Clank. He also provided the voice for the character Max Flush of the 2011 FOX television show “Bob’s Burgers”. Since 2015 he has been voicing the character of Chuck of the animated web-series “Vixen”.

Flynn is a member of an improvisational group consisting of several veteran comedians. The group is called “Beer Shark Mice” and is considered one of the best improvisational groups in the USA.

When it comes to his personal life, Flynn is not married, and likes to keep his private life away from public view, thus there is no information known about any current relationship.

In the episode, Scrubs: My Friend the Doctor (2003), it is revealed that "The Janitor" played the part of "Transit Cop" in The Fugitive (1993), a part that was actually played by Neil Flynn. Because of that, fans have speculated that The Janitor's mysterious name is also Neil Flynn. In another episode (in one of J.D.'s fantasies), "The Janitor" is talking to his son's class in school and refers to himself as "Jan Ítor". "The Janitor" also refers to himself, in thought, by that name in the episode, Scrubs: His Story III (2006). In the episode, "Scrubs" (2001) {My Manhood (#7.8)}_, "The Janitor" admits to "Dr. Cox" that three statements have some truth to them, but he is not stupid.
