Who Is Nikki Glaser? 'Not Safe' Gives The Comedian The Perfect Platform

Comedy Central has been killing it lately when it comes to giving talented female comedians the visibility they deserve with shows like Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer, and now Not Safe With Nikki Glaser, which premieres on Tuesday, Feb. 9. The show, led by none other than comedian Nikki Glaser, will follow her as she explores taboo subjects with her comic friends. But just who is Nikki Glaser?

Glaser’s new series will delve into topics about sex and relationships in an innovative and fun way. The sex-themed talk show boasts teasers and clips depicting hilarious exploits that Glaser playfully examines with her funny friends. For example, she hooks her friends up to a polygraph test to see which of them (or all of them) would sleep with her, she hires a photographer to assist men in taking d*ck pics, she reviews Tinder transcripts, she attends a foot fetish party, and she explores open relationships by interviewing girls from Craigslist to go on a date with her boyfriend. It seems that nothing is off limits for Glaser and her crew.

With the show’s debut just around the corner, let’s get to know Glaser. Here are a few of the places you may have seen her before — from making us laugh to hanging with Amy Schumer.

Women Who Kill

Many of you may recognize Glaser from the Netflix comedy special she did with Schumer, Marina Franklin, and Rachel Feinstein.

Nikki & Sara Live

Glaser hosted a weekly talk show with fellow comedian Sara Schaefer on MTV. The series lasted two seasons.

Inside Amy Schumer

You’ve probably seen Glaser in an at least one Inside Amy Schumer sketch. She’s been in so many great skits, including “‘80’s Ladies,” “Judging Strippers,” and, my favorite, “Compliments” (above).

The Bachelorette

Glaser always has some commentary for The Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradises After Paradise.


Yep, that was Glaser in the baby shower scene with fellow comedians Bridget Everett and Tim Meadows. Now that Glaser has her own Comedy Central series, maybe we'll see her in a starring role on the big screen next.
