Yeah.

Yeah.

Yeah.

Yeah, gonna talk about

a lot of stuff.

My parents are gonna see it.

They're the ones

in the other car.

My mom hasn't.

Yeah.

I want her to see what I do,

you know?

Yeah...

but you know,

if you gotta do that...

You know, you can't live

in fear.

You see I'm trying

to make a turn, right?

It doesn't matter.

But you see I'm making a turn.

You gotta pull all the way up

and fucking bother me.

You could have

just stopped back there.

This asshole's awesome.

He sees I'm making a left,

so he's gonna pull up to make it

hard for me.

New York is the best.

( Cheers and applause )

Hey, guys.

So cool.

Thank you guys so much for

coming, this is awesome.

This is so great.

How many of you guys know me

from my show, "Community"?

( Cheers and applause )

Great.

Just want to let you guys know,

this is gonna be nothing

like that.

This is gonna be a lot grosser.

I feel bad...

I feel bad for a lot of people

who come to the show,

like, people bring their

kids and stuff like that.

Like, "Oh, he's gonna do Troy

and Abed!"

And I'm just like,

"Dicks, dicks, dicks, dicks,

dicks, dicks!"

And they're "Let's go!"

I mean, 'cause I did...

I can be gross sometimes

and I know it's bad.

I mean, 'cause I did a half-hour

special for Comedy Central,

and the way I got

that half-hour special

was I did an hour in New York.

I did an hour on my own

and Comedy Central was there,

and they were like, "We really

liked your hour."

I was like, "Oh, thank you,

man, that was really great."

They were like, "We would love

to give you a half-hour."

I was like, "Great,

I would love to do a half-hour."

They're like, "Great, but don't

do any of the shit

"you did in that hour.

It was disgusting, don't do it."

Did you guys hear

about that Spider-Man thing

that happened with me?

( Cheers and applause )

Okay, for those of you

who have a life,

basically what

happened was there was...

They were talking about

on this geek blog,

about making

Spider-Man, you know,

they're redoing it.

So they said that maybe

this new Spider-Man,

since they're making

it so quickly

after making

these other Spider-Mans,

maybe they should

make it real different,

you know, make it kind of,

like, dark and edgy

like "The Dark Knight,"

and put it in modern-day times

and stuff, and maybe...

You know, Spider-Man maybe

doesn't have to be white,

maybe he can be black or

Hispanic or something like that,

and then somebody put a big

picture of me in the comments

and was like, "Donald Glover

can play Spider-Man,

he's nerdy!"

And I was like, okay.

And somebody sent that to me

so I was like,

"Oh yeah, I'll put that up."

So I put it up on my Twitter

and I was like,

Oh, Donald for

Spider-Man, let's do this.

You know, kind of a joke,

but also, like,

who doesn't want to be

Spider-Man... That'd be cool.

And that's when the world

went crazy.

And half the world was like,

"Donald for Spider-Man!

"We're only gonna

watch the next Spider-Man

if Donald Glover's playing

Peter Parker!"

And the other half was like,

"He's black, kill him!"

Like, it was so fast.

It was so fast.

It was insane, like, you

were either very hot or cold

on the subject, and I didn't...

I didn't say anything,

I didn't do anything

during that whole time,

I just laid low, but I did read

one comment that was like,

"Oh, we're gonna make

Spider-Man black now?

"We're just gonna

make Spider-Man black now?

"That's what we're gonna do,

"we're just gonna make

Spider-Man black?

"That's what we're gonna do,

"we're gonna make Spider-Man
