Kirkwood Comedian Gets a Comedy Central Special

Nikki Glaser was a semifinalist on the network's "Last Comic Standing" when she still attending college.

Kirkwood native Nikki Glaser has come up through the comedy clubs, been a semifinalist on Comedy Central's "Last Comic Standing" and now has her own half-hour comedy special on the same network.

The premiere of the special aired on Friday (yes! we missed it too!) but will be rebroadcast a number of times, so here's the schedule in case you want to set your DVR.

Glaser's bio on the Comedy Central website notes that she's also had bits on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and has appeared in the film "Punching the Clown."

  • NOTE: Check out some of her comedy in the clip above, and some perspective about doing her half-hour special, but note that some of the language is salty.

Glaser was interviewed this week in the Riverfront Times and talked about the process of taping her special in Boston.

"It's extremely well-lit. Everyone is on their best behavior," Glaser told the RFT. "On one hand, the audience is pumped and ready to laugh, but on the other, there's a weird tenseness in the room of like, WE'RE ON TV RIGHT NOW."
