She is an accomplished standup comic. She’s also hosted shows on Comedy Central, most recently the series Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, MTV’s late night comedy show, Nikki and Sarah Live and makes regular appearances on Comedy Central’s Celebrity roasts. If you’ve seen her in one of those, you probably remember her as the comedian delivering the most devastating, cutting joke in a night dedicated to devastating, cutting jokes. Her ability to take down her targets with a pointed one-liner is virtually unmatched among her fellow comedians.
We talk with Nikki about her new special, Bangin’. Plus we discuss how she’s keeping her stand-up sharp during quarantine, why she quit drinking, and what kinds of jokes she thinks are off-limits during a roast.
Her special Bangin’ is seriously one of the funniest things to come out recently. She also hosts her own podcast, which you should check out. It’s called “You Up with Nikki Glaser” – download it off your favorite podcatcher. Bangin’ is currently streaming on Netflix US.
