• Childish Gambino gives away Adidas at Coachella in the most Childish Gambino way

    Donald Glover is hawking shoes in the most Gambino possible way. The comedian-rapper-actor-writer-multi-hyphenate released a nearly seven-minute short film starring Mo’Nique to promote his new shoe line with Adidas. The shoes are a re-imagination of classic Adidas styles including the Nizza, the Continental 80, and the Lacombe, but the shoes themselves get lost in the bizarre and absurdist filmmaking style of Glover. In the video, Mo’Nique chides and gives Glover

    13 comedians’ surprising first roles

    Even the biggest comedy stars have to start somewhere. Local commercials, made-for-TV movies (before “special television events” were a thing), and brief character arcs on shows can be important first steps in long careers. Especially local commercials. Thankfully for major celebrities, those credits don’t appear on IMDB. We had to do a little digging. From the silly to the surprising, Laughspin is rounding up a list of our favorite first

    Donald Glover bares his soul on Instagram: I’m afraid I’m here for nothing (Photos)

    When reports surfaced in July that Donald Glover would be playing a much smaller role on NBC’s cult favorite Community, comedy nerds were understandably disappointed. But comedy nerds also knew that Glover is an incredibly talented guy and that he couldn’t play Troy forever. He’s already become a relatively successful hip-hip artist — under the Childish Gambino moniker — and, we would come to learn in August, that he was

    Community recap: The darkest timeline, sort-of paintball and farewell (for now)

    You guys, it’s with mixed emotions that I come to you tonight (or today, depending on when you’re reading this. Maybe it’s 4 a.m. because you went out to quash—not squash, you guys; so many people thinks it’s squash, but it’s quash!—the desolation of an uncertain Community future). Let’s not dwell on the despair that is the (here’s hoping) temporary farewell of Community, and instead, let’s talk about the finale,

    Community recap: The gang does Thanksgiving in March

    What’s up, turkeys? It’s Thanksgivingtime! Community is seriously playing with our minds this season: First it’s Halloween in February, now it’s Thanksgiving in March. Sandwiched in between there was a fun trip back to Nazi-era Germany. OR WAS THERE? Allow me a small digression to last week’s episode before we delve into Thanksgiving high jinks, won’t you? My recap last week centered on the episode’s many Holocaust references. They seemed
