Who knew that Donald Glover (The Martian, Creed) was amazing at stand-up before Weirdo came out? I certainly didn't! He can rap, he can act, and apparently he can make me laugh. Glover's comedy is well-written and clever, adding to his already extensive career in entertainment. This comedy might not suit everyone, but you have to admit that it is a work of art no matter how offended you are by it at the end! Glover reminds us that even in a world full of racist ideologies, we can get a laugh from our observations. Certain jokes teeter on the edge of racism, but the delivery makes it alright. Glover seems like such a natural on the stage, prancing around in full control of the audience's attention. For those of you who are familiar with Glover as Troy Barnes in Community, this is a different and yet familiar character. His stand-up includes the wit of Troy, but adds the raunchiness of Childish Gambino. Basically if you are a fan of Troy or Gambino, you will find loyal connections from the characters in his stand-up performance. I'm still shocked that he said those jokes so comfortably in front of his mom, but hopefully she saw it as another reason to be proud of her son!
