Nicole Renee Glaser (born June 1, 1984) is an American stand-up comedian, actress, podcast host, radio host and television host. She was the host of the television series Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, which premiered on Comedy Central and Much on February 9, 2016.
Glaser was born on June 1, 1984, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the daughter of Julie E. (née Burke) and Edward J. Glaser. She has German and Irish ancestry. Glaser spent most of her childhood in St. Louis, Missouri. She graduated from Kirkwood High School and later graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in English Literature.
Glaser started performing stand-up at the age of 18. Her first jokes were written in college. She recalled this in an interview with Rich Tupica in Revue magazine: "I remember it. I was a freshman in college and everyone in my dorm took over the cafeteria as like a study hall. I went in there and instead of studying I just looked at them, judged them and tried to think, "What would Sarah Silverman say about these people?" I didn't know how to write jokes—I just knew the stand-ups I knew. I wrote from the perspective of my favorite stand-ups because I didn't know what my perspective was yet."
Glaser had her first feature stand-up special (titled Bangin') on Netflix, which premiered on October 1, 2019.
Podcast and radio
Glaser co-hosted the podcast We Know Nothing with comedian Phil Hanley and roommate/musician Anya Marina. We Know Nothing is a humorous relationship-based podcast that takes calls from listeners and attempts to give them love advice.
From January to October 2016, she hosted the companion podcast to her Comedy Central show "Not Safe" with Dan St. Germain and Brian Frange. Each episode they discussed sex and relationship issues as well as apples.
In February 2018, she began hosting You Up? With Nikki Glaser, a daily radio show on Sirius XM.
Throughout 2018 and 2019 Glaser has appeared on the Howard Stern channels on Sirius XM, including the roast of Ronnie the Limo driver and as a guest on the wrap-up show. On September 24, 2019 she was the feature guest with Howard Stern for a full-length interview.
On June 2, 2015, Comedy Central greenlit a sex-themed talk show hosted by Glaser, titled Not Safe with Nikki Glaser. The show premiered on February 9, 2016. The show was picked up by 4Music in the United Kingdom. The show was cancelled in November 2016.
On September 12, 2018, Glaser was announced as one of the celebrities who will compete on season 27 of Dancing with the Stars. Her professional partner was Gleb Savchenko. They were the first couple eliminated from the competition on September 25.
On February 6, 2019, Glaser appeared in the third episode of the third season of the celebrity rap-battle competition show Drop the Mic, where she competed against fellow comedian Brad Williams, ultimately winning the battle.
Glaser played a small role in Henry Phillips' 2009 film Punching the Clown. She also appeared as herself in Jordan Brady's 2010 documentary I Am Comic, and its 2014 sequel, I Am Road Comic.
