1QA: Donald Glover Talks Dick Jokes with Chevy

Francesca Galassi :: Thursday, November 12th, 2009 1:30 pm

Donald Glover stars in the NBC sitcom Community alongside Joel McHale and Chevy Chase as Troy, a former high school football star trying to reinvent himself. Along with his work on Community Glover has worked as a staff writer on 30 Rock, and does stand-up and improv around New York City. This fall he’ll star in Mystery Team, his first feature, which he also co-wrote and produced. Community airs on Thursdays 8/7c. on NBC.

What have you learned about being funny from Chevy Chase?

I’ve learned that comedy changes. One thing Chevy kept saying when we were shooting the pilot was “comedy’s changed…”, which I guess it has.  But not in the content, just the delivery. Chevy won’t laugh at a lot of the jokes I pull on set, but this one time, I was dressed all raggedy for the Christmas episode, and I was doing a bit with Joel where I was pretending to be a crack addict who’s trying to get Joel to pay for me to suck his dick so I can buy more crack, and Chevy couldn’t stop laughing. I think it’s because at the end of the day, it was still a dick joke. Farts, shit, and dick jokes will always be funny. It’s all about how you pull ‘em.
