Joyner is originally from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He was born to Kevin Joyner and Dina Joyner-Gantz (née Blohm), who is of German descent. He has an older sister named Luka and, through his mother's current marriage, two stepsiblings named Hannah and Hayden.
While watching a friend's performance at a theatre, Joyner was encouraged to audition for the theatre's next production by the theatre director. He landed the role and then fell in love with acting.
He starred in more performances and productions, including To Kill a Mockingbird, The Wizard of Oz, and How to Succeed in Business..., at the theatre as well as other places before going to Los Angeles to expand his career. He got a script for 100 Things to Do Before High School, which he thought was funny. He then booked the lead role of Crispo Powers before meeting his agent. The show premiered in 2014 before starting its original run in 2015. Nick declined to renew the series for a second season in 2016.
In May 2017, Joyner was attached to an upcoming Nickelodeon comedy television show tentatively titled Knight Squad. He will portray Arc, a main character. The show will begin production in fall 2017.
