Biography

A self-professed "nerd" whose love for both hip-hop and "The Simpsons" (Fox, 1999- ) influenced his stellar career, Donald Glover was an actor, comedian, writer and musician whose multi-faceted career included the cult comedy troupe Derrick Comedy, writing for "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-13), starring in NBC's "Community" (2009-15; Yahoo!, 2015) and releasing a wealth of rap tracks that minted him as a rising star in the indie music community. Glover's work blended a childlike fascination for pop culture with introspective ruminations on adolescent alienation and loneliness, which found considerable favor with both critics and comedy and music fans alike. The fact that he was devastatingly funny certainly helped his career ascension, but it was his relentless pursuit of his ambitions in all of his fields of interest that minted Glover as a unique and prolific entertainment figure.
