Why So Serious, Nikki Glaser?
Nikki Glaser is committed to comedy. After transferring from CU-Boulder to the University of Kansas, she lied to her professors to get excused from class (for four weeks!) to tape a part for NBC's "Last Comic Standing." She moved to Los Angeles right after college and quickly began climbing the comedy ladder, appearing at prestigious festivals such as Just for Laughs in Montreal and on late-night talk shows like "The Tonight Show." These days the 27-year-old is living in New York and co-hosting the "You Had to Be There" podcast with comedian Sara Schaefer, and the show just got some high-profile love from The New York Times Magazine.
