Nicole Rene "Nikki" Glaser (born June 1, 1984) is an American stand-up comedian, podcast 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 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 English Literature.
Podcast & 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. In 2015, she left the podcast after she determined that it was interfering with her personal relationships.
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.
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. Not Safe with Nikki Glaser is now shown in the UK on 4Music. The show was cancelled in November 2016.
Glaser has voiced opinions on what she views as "rape culture", following the Brock Turner case, suggesting Judge Aaron Persky, who handed down Turner's sentence, should be a synonym for rape apologist.
