Donald Glover is a lucky man, and he says so himself. After Tina Fey hired him right out of college to be a writer for 30 Rock, he was cast as dim-bulb jock Troy in NBC’s latest hit comedy,Community, and now he’s debuting his first half-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central. But his rapid ascent through the comedy ranks is more than just luck. He’s a prolific entertainer, juggling his acting and stand-up with writing and performing duties for the sketch team Derrick Comedy. But while his success could be attributed to many things—luck, talent, ambition—for Glover it all seems to boil down to being a nerdy obsessive.
