“Community” star Donald Glover to play Ogden Theatre as Childish GambinoBy John Wenzel | June 4th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
It would be easy to hate Donald Glover. At the ripe old age of 28, the smiling, fresh-faced comedian and actor has already starred in two Comedy Central specials, written for the critically acclaimed show “30 Rock,” nabbed a role on the cult favorite “Community” and established himself as a formidable MC under his hip-hop moniker Childish Gambino. So why should this camera-ready dude have all the luck? Because he’s worked for it, and because he’s just that good. Glover will bring his Gambino show to the Odgen Theatre at 8 p.m. Tuesday to promote last year’s debut album, “Camp,” with Chance the Rapper. Tickets, $25-$30, are available through axs.com.
