How tall is Childish Gambino? Childish Gambino is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, according to his IMDB bio, which lists him as Donald Glover. That’s the name this multi-talented rapper, comedian, writer, and actor was given sometime circa September 25, 1983, when he was born on Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California. Glover moved with his family to Atlanta at the age of four, and as a youngster, he developed an interest in writing plays. He went on study drama at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he graduated with a degree in dramatic writing in 2006. While living in NYU’s dorms, the man who would be Childish Gambino landed a job writing for the NBC sitcom “30 Rock,” and he later joined the cast of “Community,” where he portrayed Troy Barnes from 2009 to 20014. During that period, Gambino launched his rap career, releasing a series of acclaimed mixtapes and two studio albums, “Camp” (2011) and “Because the Internet” (2013).

While Childish Gambino’s height, 5 feet, 10 inches, doesn’t make him a literal giant, he’s quite a showbiz powerhouse, and he’s proven himself in numerous disciplines. In addition to his work on television and film, Gambino, aka Glover, has earned high praise for his online comedy, much of it made with the Derrick Comedy troupe. He’s appeared on numerous TV shows, including “Sesame Street,” “Human Giant,” and “Robot Chicken,” and in 2011 — the same year he released that debut album — he hosted MTV’s Woodie Awards. As a rapper, Childish Gambino has never scored a major crossover single, but his “Because the Internet” track “3005” reached No. 16 on the Rap chart, proving he’s popular among the genre’s core audience.

How tall is Childish Gambino compared to other famous rapper/actors? At 5 feet, 10 inches, he’s taller than both “8 Mile” star Eminem and Hollywood veteran Ice Cube, both of whom stand 5 feet, 8 inches tall. Unfortunately, he doesn’t quite measure up to Shaquille O’Neal, who checks in at 7 feet, 1 inch tall, but Childish Gambino is a far superior rapper and actor, and even if he’s not as dominant on the b-ball court, two out of three ain’t bad.
