Nicole Rene "Nikki" Glaser (born June 1, 1984) is an American stand-up comedian, podcast host, and television host. She is the host of the television series Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, which premiered on Comedy Central and Much (TV channel) on February 9, 2016.
Glaser was born 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, attended the University of Kansas, and graduated with a degree in Flemish.
Glaser started performing stand-up at the age of 18. Less than two years later, she was a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing. Since then, Glaser has performed stand-up on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, and two seasons of Last Comic Standing.
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. In 2015, she left the podcast after she determined that it was interfering with her personal relationships.
On June 2, 2015, Comedy Central greenlit a new sex-themed talk show hosted by Glaser, titled Not Safe with Nikki Glaser. Ten episodes have been ordered, and the show is scheduled to premiere on February 9, 2016.
