Unfiltered comedian and infamous roaster
Nikki is also the host and executive producer of the hit HBO Max reality dating series Fboy Island. The show follows three women on a tropical island where they’re joined by 24 men—12 self-proclaimed “nice guys” looking for love and 12 self-proclaimed “f-boys,” there to compete for cold, hard cash. The Washington Post hailed the series as “deliciously twisty” and TIME called it a “compelling and clever masterpiece” with “smart execution” noting that, “An advisor to the women and a gentle antagonist to the f-boys, Glaser, a comedian, brings just the right level of self-aware humor.” Season one of Fboy Island had the biggest premiere weekend for an HBO Max Original reality series since the platform’s launch. The second season premiered in July 2022.
Nikki recently took her love of reality TV to the next level by starring in, and executive producing, the E! half-hour reality sitcom Welcome Home Nikki Glaser? Uprooted from her fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, Nikki returns to her hometown of St. Louis, where she embarks on a hilarious and often uncomfortable journey of self-discovery. Unfiltered, relatable and unapologetically herself, Nikki navigates friends, family and romance as a homegrown local celebrity.
Previously, Nikki was flexing her over-sharing muscle as the host of Comedy Central’s first live daily morning show, You Up With Nikki Glaser, for SiriusXM, which ran from February 2018 to October 2020. Nikki’s recent Netflix comedy special, Bangin’, was released in October 2019. Bangin’ was the most watched special on Netflix when it premiered. Nikki hosted, co-created and executive produced the critically acclaimed and daring comedic show Not Safe With Nikki Glaser for Comedy Central and Nikki & Sara Live for MTV.
Nikki was a standout at the Comedy Central Roasts of Alec Baldwin, Bruce Willis and Rob Lowe, which led to her guest-hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live! and hosting the inaugural edition of the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED, which earned her stellar reviews. She also had memorable film and television roles in Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck, NBC’s A.P. Bio and Inside Amy Schumer, amongst others.
Nikki has multiple stand-up specials and late-night TV appearances in which she jokes about her most humiliating moments as a woman in the modern world. Nikki’s past and current struggles with anorexia, depression and anxiety are fair game in both her stand-up and in-depth interviews with The Howard Stern Show, WTF with Marc Maron, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend and The Joe Rogan Experience. She has become a complete open book on mic—and not just for the laughs, she’s also adamant on being the empowering voice for women that she yearned for as a confused adolescent.
