Donald Glover is a jack of all trades. The 34-year-old has made a name for himself as a comedian, writer, actor, rapper, musician and director. He is one of a few entertainers who has won two Grammys, two Emmys, two Golden Globes and now he’s joining an even shorter list of people who appeared on a single episode of Saturday Night Live as host and musical guest.
