Glover describes his upbringing as “unusual”. Born in California and raised in Georgia, he grew up in a foster home, run by his mother. He acknowledges that the fact he grew up in a foster home had an affect on his comedic outlook on life. “My parents had a lot of foster kids living with us, and a lot of my stuff is autobiographical – stuff that weirded me out as a kid.” He has a degree in Dramatic Writing from New York University (NYU).

Going in, I didn’t really know who I was comedically, but coming out (after writing there for the first three seasons) I felt far more confident.”
