Ben Gleib was just named by TBS one of the "Funniest Comedians Working Today". His hilarious hour stand-up special, "Ben Gleib: Neurotic Gangster", is currently airing on Showtime.
He is Host, Head Writer and Executive Producer of "Idiotest", the Emmy nominated comedy game show, in its 4th season on GSN, with 210 episodes. It’s their most watched original show. (For Gleib, Executive Producer is not just a title. He helps create all of the show's brain puzzles.)
Gleib is a regular on "The Today Show" with Kathie Lee and Hoda, appearing at least monthly on their "Guys Tell All" segment, and hosting other segments. You may have seen one of his recent appearances on Comedy Central's "@midnight with Chris Hardwick". For 7 years he was one of the most frequent regulars on "Chelsea Lately" on E! with over 100 appearances!
Gleib is the first comedian to ever live stream a full headline set on Facebook Live, and did it for one show in each city on his last tour, 100% improvised, getting almost 4 million views. His act is chock full of hilarious material, but he's also one of the best improvisers in stand-up comedy.
A truly unique talent, Gleib recently co-anchored a week of ABC News digital from their world news headquarters in New York. Has been a regular on-air contributor to CNN and NPR (where he won a Golden Mic award) and co-anchored "The Young Turks". Unusual gigs for a comedian, and further examples of why he is one of the most unique voices in comedy.
He has been headlining comedy clubs around the globe since 2007, and has toured arenas with Chelsea Handler and Dane Cook. His political and current events podcast "Last Week On Earth" on the Smodcast Network debuted on iTunes Comedy at #9, and was #1 on stitcher for 20 straight weeks. Ben's online videos have received over 25 million views.
He is also an accomplished voiceover actor, voicing characters in "The Book of Life", "Ice Age: Continental Drift" (the second highest grossing animated movie of all-time internationally) and is one of the stars of Kevin Smith's "Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie".
Gleib is one of the leads in the feature film "Bad People" in the Top 100 New Releases on iTunes and Amazon. You may also have seen him as the host of ABC's "Oscar Roadtrip" featured during the 85th Academy Awards pre-show, as the star of the NBC primetime hidden camera series "The Real Wedding Crashers", his memorable guest star on the E! scripted series "After Lately", or from his recent webseries "Cinedopes" that he wrote and stars in, available for free on Youtube.
If that's not enough, almost daily he creates elaborate out-of-the-box Instagram stories. He has not looked up from his phone in three years.
