14. Nikki Glaser: Bangin’
Release Year: 2019
Starring: Nikki Glaser
Release Date: Tuesday, Oct. 1
After absolutely killing it at Comedy Central’s roast of Alec Baldwin, taking aim at the entire stage of guests with cutthroat jokes, comedian Nikki Glaser debuts her first Netflix comedy special. It’s not a moment too soon for Glaser, who also appeared in the first season of Netflix’s The Standups, to branch out and bring her comedy to a wider audience. And it’s about time she becomes the next top comedian with a movie, TV series and book deal. Nikki Glaser: Bangin’ kicks off October’s trio comedy specials you don’t want to miss.
Keep in tune with the material in Glaser’s past comedy specials on Comedy Central, Bangin’ finds the comedian riffing on all things sex-related. She doesn’t hold back when diving into the taboo topics surrounding the subject, and as the trailer for the special says, she’ll say what everyone else is thinking. Staying true to her no-filter style, Glaser hits back at the unrealistic expectations placed on women in regards to sex and the various awkward encounters that can be all too relatable but all the more hilarious. The set just might be her most daring yet.
Glaser’s set on The Standups was among the most popular in the first season, and she constantly receives praise for her work elsewhere in comedy, whether it’s her own act or on panels, roasts and her XM radio show. Most recently, Glaser’s set during Baldwin’s roast has earned overwhelming acclaim and garnered millions of views and counting across social media and YouTube. Bangin’ will be her first of surely many hourlong Netflix comedy specials and a can’t-miss comedy event. Be sure to check out it when it premieres at the top of October.
