Ben Gleib has long been a favorite guest of Olivia Wilder, and this will be his seventh visit. He's here to talk about his new first ever hour-long standup comedy special, premiering on Showtime on June 3 at 10 PM.
Years ago, Esquire called Ben Gleib one of 6 comedians who could be "comedy's next big thing." The other 5 were Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Demetri Martin, and Flight of the Conchords. It came true for the other 5, and now it seems to be Gleib's time.
He spent 7 years as one of the most featured performers on Chelsea Lately, going on to host and executive produce "Idiotest," the Emmy nominated game show in its third season as the most watched original show on GSN. (He also helps create all of the show's brain puzzles.)
Gleib is a regular on "The Today Show" with Kathie Lee and Hoda, has made multiple appearances on Comedy Central's @midnight, and recently was even guest co-anchor of ABC News digital, from ABC News world headquarters in New York.
