Show: Ben Gleib
Ben Gleib was just named by TBS one of the “Funniest Comedians Working Today.”
His hilarious hour standup special, “Ben Gleib: Neurotic Gangster,” is currently airing on Showtime.
He is Host, Head Writer and Executive Producer of “Idiotest,” the Emmy nominated comedy game show, in its 4th season on GSN, with 210 episodes. It’s their most watched original show. (For Gleib, Executive Producer is not just a title. He helps create all of the show’s brain puzzles.)
Gleib is a regular on “The Today Show” with Kathie Lee and Hoda, appearing at least monthly on their “Guys Tell All” segment, and hosting other segments. You may have seen one of his recent appearances on Comedy Central’s “@midnight with Chris Hardwick.”
For 7 years he was one of the most frequent regulars on “Chelsea Lately” on E! with over 100 appearances!
Gleib is the first comedian to ever live stream a full headline set on Facebook Live, and did it for one show in each city on his last tour, 100% improvised, getting almost 4 million views. His act is chock full of hilarious material, but he’s also one of the best improvisers in standup comedy.
A truly unique talent, Gleib recently co-anchored a week of ABC News digital from their world news headquarters in New York. Has been a regular on-air contributor to CNN and NPR (where he won a Golden Mic award,) and co-anchored “The Young Turks.” Unusual gigs for a comedian, and further examples of why he is one of the most unique voices in comedy.
Show Time: 7:00pm and 9:30pm
