Review- ‘Atlanta’ Starring Donald Glover!

Comedy News, Our Member

Thoughtful, quirky and sometimes quiet, I’m guessing Atlanta won’t be for some who might be expecting something a bit more overtly “wacky” from Donald Glover, but I’m hopeful others will find it to be the very intriguing and well-crafted comedy I do.

Glover created Atlanta, which he also executive produces and stars in, and this truly feels like a labor of love for the writer, comedic actor and rapper. Glover plays Earnest “Earn” Marks, a decidedly down on his luck young man living in, you guessed it, Atlanta. In a bad financial situation, Earn is trying to support the child he has with Van (Zazie Beeetz) and barely getting by. When he discovers his cousin, Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles, is a rising local rapper, Earn – who has a tiny bit of “previously went nowhere” connections to the local music scene – convinces a reluctant Alfred to take him on as his manager, hoping to better both their lives in the process.
