Maybe you recall her memorable appearances at the roasts of Rob Lowe, Bruce Willis, and Alec Baldwin—Nikki Glaser is the tall, statuesque, bubbly blonde with the potty mouth and crass observations. She was active for a rather long time before finally enjoying a come-up in the past six years. She has a pretty long résumé that includes a short-lived sex-themed Comedy Central talk show, Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, a stint on Dancing with the Stars (she was eliminated the first round in 2018), and her first full-length comedy special on Netflix, Bangin’. She opens the special with an extended bit about the horror and devastation of discovering, for the first time, what a blowjob was (“My mouth?! That’s where candy goes, I can’t believe you would put a dick there!”), accepting its inevitability (like death) and then discussing all the cultural shit that goes with it. She’s funny as fuck.
