Ben Gleib was just named by TBS one of the "Funniest Comedians Working Today." He is host of the Emmy nominated game show “Idiotest” in its 4th season on GSN, with 210 episodes. It’s the most watched original program on the network. His hilarious hour standup special “Ben Gleib: Neurotic Gangster" is currently airing on Showtime.
He's also a regular on “The Today Show” with Kathie Lee and Hoda, on their “Guys Tell All” segment, and you may have seen one of his recent appearances on “@Midnight with Chris Hardwick” on Comedy Central. For years Ben was best known as one of the most frequent regulars on "Chelsea Lately" on E! with over 100 appearances!
His podcast "Last Week On Earth" on the Smodcast Network debuted on iTunes Comedy at #9, and was #1 on stitcher for 20 straight weeks. Gleib is the first comedian to ever live stream a full headline set on Facebook Live, and he did it for one show in each city on his last tour, 100% improvised. His act is chock full of hilarious material, but he's also one of the best improvisers in standup comedy.
He's been headlining comedy clubs around the globe since 2007, and has toured sold-out arenas with Chelsea Handler and Dane Cook.
Esquire once called him one of “Six comedians who could be comedy’s next big thing.” The other five were Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Demetri Martin, and Flight of the Conchords. It came true for all of them and it now seems to be Gleib's time.
