Three years after placing out for Netflix along with her Bangin’ comedy particular, Nikki Glaser has a brand new hour with HBO that’s simply as filthy relating to her sexual confessions. However this time, she leans even more durable into not simply the soiled particulars of her intercourse life, but additionally the why it’s necessary for her to talk so overtly and publicly about intercourse onstage.
The Gist: Glaser already made the bounce to HBO Max final 12 months because the host and government producer of the truth courting sequence, FBOY Island.
However followers of Glaser additionally have already got a substantial amount of data in regards to the comic’s personal love life, both by way of her earlier hour and two half-hour stand-up specials for Netflix, her Comedy Central reveals on TV and radio earlier than that, or her present actuality present for E!, Welcome Home Nikki Glaser.
And but. Glaser nonetheless has lots extra to dish about in her new hour of stand-up, filmed late final 12 months on the Paramount Theater in Denver. Principally about oral intercourse, anal intercourse, and handjobs, all wrapped in a bow along with her response to a preferred e-book’s recommendation on find out how to land a person for all times.
What Comedy Specials Will It Remind You Of? Glaser’s 2019 Netflix particular, Bangin’. When you’re a type of fits who wants an elevator pitch, or simply an previous one who’s not hip to her recreation, consider Glaser as a younger Dr. Ruth talking about intercourse within the cadence of a younger Wendy Liebman.
Memorable Jokes: After her first 20 minutes, Glaser concedes to us that she’s totally conscious of how a lot she talks about her turn-ons and turn-offs, and particularly her vagina: “I discuss it a lot I don’t name it my privates.”
So she pivots to butt stuff. Making a case for extra girls to bask in anal intercourse with their companions, Glaser affords at the very least six completely different items of recommendation, although with tongue firmly in cheek, she numbers every of them “quantity two.”
She additionally has a seemingly foolproof technique for executing a handjob.
And evaluating the intercourse lives of ladies in stand-up versus the boys, she very particularly calls out Pete Davidson, nonetheless managing to go with the previous SNL star for his conquests all whereas suggesting he needs to be with somebody extra like…her.
Our Take: It’s all too straightforward to dismiss Glaser as a unclean comedian speaking soiled for shock worth. Maybe as a result of quite a lot of of her friends appear to have been there, carried out that. However that’s not her goal, and by no means has been.
As she reminds her HBO viewers (maybe in case they’re not up on her Netflix catalog), Glaser was a late bloomer to any type of intimacy. So she’s telling audiences the issues about males, courting, intercourse and energy dynamics that she needs somebody had informed her when she was rising up. Perhaps even the boys want to listen to this, too, as she argues that the principle purpose some males refuse to go down on a girl is out of shameful concern. Glaser will not be ashamed.
She additionally astutely rips into males her age (37) for courting youthful girls and falsely claiming that they’re solely doing it as a result of the youthful girls have previous souls. Glaser factors out that these girls had been pressured to mature out of childhood tragedy, and must heal by way of remedy, not by courting older males. “Go away them alone!”
On the identical time, Glaser is aware of that the actual purpose males of any age are inclined to keep away from humorous girls is as a result of too many males outline humorousness as a girl who laughs at their jokes. “That’s why I’ll be alone endlessly.”
Our Name: STREAM IT. Technology X grew up on Dr. Ruth. Millennials grew up with Dr. Drew. Let Nikki Glaser be the loveline to Gen Z.
