“One night with Nikki Glaser” should prove satisfying to say the least. If you fell in love with the comedian after she slayed a celebrity on one of Comedy Central’s Roast programs you’re not alone, but she’s been a busy stand-up performer long before that. Glaser is shameless when it comes to calling out that thing nobody else will dare to say about pop culture, famous figures and sex. Her last Netflix special, BANGIN focused on the later and true to form, she holds nothing back when attempting to shed light on stuff that women think and feel about dating, doing it and other D words. She’s parlayed the notoriety from stand up into a host of giggle-worthy gigs including hit podcasts, a sketch comedy show for MTV, a sex-driven program for Comedy Central and a hosting position on HBO’s trashy hookup masterpiece F-Boy Island. Over-sharing and throwing shade at Martha Stewart’s thirstiness aside, Glaser displays a vulnerability and insightful wit that shines brightest on a stage when she’s talking about herself, so catch her live even if it’s only for this one night stand.
One night with Nikki Glaser at the Ace Hotel, 929 S. Broadway. Downtown L.A. Fri., Nov. 19. Tickets and info here.
