Years ago, Esquire called Ben Gleib one of "six 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 each of them, and it now seems to be Gleib's time. His first hour special, Ben Gleib: Neurotic Gangster
, premiered on Showtime in June.
For 7 years he was one of the stars of Chelsea Lately, and now is Host and Executive Producer of "Idiotest," the Emmy nominated comedy game show in its third season on GSN, as their most watched original show. (For Gleib, EP is not just a title. He helps create all of the show's brain puzzles.)
Gleib is also a regular on "The Today Show" with Kathie Lee and Hoda, and has made multiple appearances on Comedy Central's @midnight.
A truly unique voice in comedy, Gleib has been a regular on-air contributor to CNN
(where he won a Golden Mic,) is an accomplished voice over actor (The Book of Life, Ice Age: Continental Drift -the second highest grossing animated movie of all-time internationally,) and this year co-anchored a week of ABC News
digital from their world news headquarters in New York. An unusual gig for a comedian, another example of why he is one of the most multi-talented comics working today.
Gleib has been headlining comedy clubs around the globe since 2007 and has toured arenas with Chelsea Handler and Dane Cook. His podcast 'Last Week On Earth
,' debuted on iTunes Comedy at #9, was #1 on stitcher for 20 straight weeks, and his online videos have received over 20 million views.
Adam Hunter is one of the hottest young stand up comedians around today. He is full of exciting energy that makes crowds go wild. He headlines all over the country, putting his heart and soul into every performance with an act that is brash, deep and most importantly, funny. Adam is one of the hardest working comics around, performing every night of the week, usually 2 or 3 shows a night. His live ticket at comedy clubs is always hot as his act is universal and night after night Adam Hunter delivers a powerful message that keeps audiences on the edges of their seats.
