5 Funny Facts: Donald Glover
For today's edition of '5 Funny Facts', I'm writing about Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, a favorite among some of my favorite Vinglers here in the Funny Community. He began as a writer for '30 Rock', rose to fame on 'Community', and flipped the game on its head when he debuted as rapper Childish Gambino.

Think you know everything there is to know about Don? Check out the five facts below - you might learn something new!

He got his rap name from a Wu-Tang Clan Name Generator.

You know those generators where you put in your full name, and the Internet turns it into something ridiculous? Yeah, that's how Don got his rap name.

His go-to karaoke song is "Kiss From A Rose" by Seal.

"At the beginning, people know the intro and react [starts singing the melody]: 'Bada-ba-ba-ba-ba-bada-ba...' You’re never alone by the time you have to sing the 'Baby!' which is the hard part because it gets high."

He can make a mean osso bucco.

"The slower you roast it, the better. I really like the marrow – that's my favorite part – so you can't let it get too dried out. If it's too dry, it's awful. You've got to keep the lid on and the moisture in."

He graduated from NYU with a degree in dramatic writing, going on to be a screenwriter for the hit series '30 Rock'.

Life's not too shabby when you have someone like Tina Fey on your side, huh?

He has an adopted younger brother named Stephen who is also an aspiring rapper.

Sometimes you can catch Stephen performing alongside Don on stage at various Childish Gambino shows.

Are you a big Donald Glover fan? What TV show, movie, or funny person should I do next?

Let me know in le comments below.

@danidee anything is possible if you put in effort and first try. You only fail in life if you fail to try, and only succeed in life if you're not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them! Go for it mate!
