Donald Glover was born in Edwards Air Force Base, California, and raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia. His father is a postal worker and his mother runs a daycare center. He is, despite rumors, not related to actor Danny Glover. Graduated from New York University with a degree in Dramatic Writing in 2006.
Glover worked as a writer for the NBC comedy 30 Rock which he also got a Writers Guild of America Award nomination for in 2009. He is best known for his role as Troy on the current NBC comedy Community in which he plays an athlete in a rather odd study group, opposite Chevy Chase and Joel McHale.
Glover auditioned for President Obama on Saturday Night Live in 2008. Though he didn't get the role, for a while rumors were circulating. His stand-up special aired on Comedy Central in March 2010.
