Life and career

Ben Gleib Interviewly Ben Gleib August 2014 reddit AMA

Gleib was a regular roundtable guest on the E! late night talk show Chelsea Lately and has been appearing on the show since January 2008. He is a frequent guest on KPCC (Southern California's NPR affiliate) on the Patt Morrison Program, bringing his comedic spin to political issues. He also reported for KPCC live from the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.

He starred in the NBC series The Real Wedding Crashers, a prime-time comedy that aired on the network Mondays at 10pm, with the show Heroes as a lead-in. The show also aired on Bravo and Style Network.

In 2009, he performed his standup on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly, and in 2008 Gleib was featured on the NBC competition show Last Comic Standing. He is known for covering a wide range of topics in his act and his improvisational skills, often making up large sections of his performance based on interactions with the crowd. A recent review of his standup said: "His persona has evolved to a satirical high... his act is laden with material that pays every time."

In 2006, he sold a pilot called The Gleib Show to Fox, produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video, and NBC/Universal. This show was based on a TV show that Gleib directed, wrote, and starred in for three seasons on the National Lampoon College Network from 2003 to 2005 that aired to college campuses across the country; it was consistently the network's number one show. It was also written and produced by Scot Richardson. The show was based on a show of the same title that Gleib did for four years during his time as an undergrad at the University of California, San Diego. At UCSD he studied communications and theater and graduated in the Honors Thesis Program.

Gleib appears in a supporting role in the feature film Bar Starz, which had a limited theatrical release. The film also featured Charlie Murphy, Daniel Franceze, Derek Waters, John Bernthal, and Nikki Griffin.

In addition, Gleib has performed on The Late Late Show on CBS and on the Vancouver C veral pods for Current TV, and in 2002 he wrote the "Radio Music Awards" for ABC.

Since November 2011, Gleib has hosted the podcast Last Week on Earth with Ben Gleib, distributed through Kevin Smith's Smodco Podcast Network.

He currently hosts Idiotest, a game show on the Game Show Network.
