Helium Presents: Ben Gleib Live Special Taping

Ben Gleib was named by TBS one of the "funniest comedians working today”. He’s host of the Emmy nominated "Idiotest" on Game Show Network & Pluto TV, and his Showtime standup special “Neurotic Gangster” is now on Amazon Prime. His podcast “Last Week on Earth” debuted at #9 on iTunes Comedy, and he hosts the “Social Distancing Social Club” online 4 times a week. For 7 years he was one of the stars of “Chelsea Lately" on E! with over 100 appearances.

As an actor he can be seen in the “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” movie, along with Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Chris Hemsworth, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, and will be guest starring on a new show for one of the big streaming platforms this fall.

He was a regular on "The Today Show" with Kathie Lee and Hoda, appearing over 25 times, and you may have seen one of his appearances on "@Midnight" on Comedy Central, “The Late Late Show” or “The Tonight Show”.

Gleib is the first comedian to ever live stream a full headline set on Facebook Live, and did it in 8 straight cities, 100% improvised, with almost 4 million views. His act is full of unique material, but he's also one of the best at crowd work, making it all up on the spot. You can catch his near weekly virtual show “GLEIB OFF THE TOP: Crowd Work & Improvised Madness” and his monthly virtual show with Greg Proops “Greg & Gleib: It’s a G Thing” both at Nowhere Comedy online. He’s also the creator of “Telethon for America” which he hosted with Olivia Munn in 2018, and Rosario Dawson in 2020.

Esquire has called Gleib one of “Six comedians who could be comedy’s next big thing.” You can follow him on social media @bengleib.
