All hail the age of female comedy domination. Comedy Central has announced that Nikki Glaser will be hosting her own show, titled "Not Safe with Nikki Glaser," starting in 2016. The new program will be a mix of stand-up, pre-taped segments, interviews and audience participation. And the best part: "Not Safe with Nikki Glaser" is all about sex. The show's content will focus on sexuality, relationships and romance, particularly from women's perspectives.
As the network's president of original programming, Kent Alterman, said during the show's announcement, "I was shocked to learn our fans have such keen interest in sex, but so be it. Nikki is the perfect talent to satisfy them." Glaser added, "I'm deeply touched that Comedy Central has decided to fulfill my Make-A-Wish dream of hosting a comedy show about sex. My parents are very proud (of my sister, who is a teacher)."
Glaser has already appeared on many Comedy Central shows as a guest star, including "@midnight" and "Inside Amy Schumer" (she and Schumer are also good friends who have worked together throughout their careers). She's also worked as a stand-up comic throughout her career, and she co-hosted the MTV talk show "Live with Nikki & Sara" for two seasons. This summer, you'll be able to catch her in the movie "Trainwreck," along with Schumer and Bill Hader.
Want to check out her work before the show premieres next year? Here are three reasons why you should know Nikki Glaser:
Her "Late Night with Seth Meyers" set
Glaser appeared on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" a little over a year ago. Landing the gig marks a serious milestone in her career and the raunchy set she performed gives a taste of what "Not Safe with Nikki Glaser" could be like.
Whether she's spouting random observations, pointing her followers toward great content or laying into people who really, really deserve it, Glaser's Twitter game is on point.
Her show "Nikki & Sara Live"
Glaser, along with co-host Sara Schaefer, interviewed everyone from Justin Timberlake to JWoww to Daniel Radcliffe over the course of "Live with Nikki & Sara." Glaser's new show should include stars who are just as exciting.
