Donald Glover is the consummate example of the Hollywood triple-threat. The 26-year old actor, writer, and musician is quickly positioning himself as one of Hollywood’s most promising talents. Most recognized for his role as the jock “Troy” on NBC’s Community, Donald was hired as a staff writer on the hit-show 30 Rock while still a Resident Assistant at NYU. During his time at 30 Rock the show won two Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as a Writer’s Guild Award for Best Comedy.
Donald was born in California on Edwards Air Force Base and moved to Atlanta when he was four. There he studied drama and the process of writing short plays, which he continued to study at New York University’s Dramatic Writing program at Tisch. While at NYU, Donald studied improvisation and comedy writing with the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre and had the honor of improvising with the likes of Amy Poehler and Horatio Sanz. He also performed on Late Night with Conan O’Brien multiple times.
Donald is also one of the founding members of the internet sketch comedy sensation, DERRICK Comedy. The group’s YouTube channel has garnered over 5 million views. The group’s first feature film which Donald co-wrote, produced, scored and starred in, Mystery Team, was released in Los Angeles in March 2010 and on DVD in May 2010.
In addition to Community, Donald continues to tour and perform stand-up. His first Comedy Central Stand-Up Special aired in March, 2010. In July 2010, Donald received the first-ever Rising Comedy Star of the Year Award at the 2010 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. In addition to acting, Donald raps under the moniker “Childish Gambino”. Most recently he released two mixtapes, I Am Just A Rapper and I Am Just A Rapper 2 and his most recent album entitled Culdesac was released in July, 2010.
