  • Ben Gleib

    Ben Gleib

    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 and NPR (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.

    Born and raised in south Los Angeles with direct Nigerian roots, Chinedu got his start in comedy after a friend in college dared/encouraged him to try stand up. Chinedu, down for 180 degree life change, told himself “Why not?” After a successful enough first show (didn’t cry or shit his pants) Chinedu became hooked; performing at every talent show, open mic and stand up night he could find at and around the University of California, Santa Barbara. After finishing school,, Chinedu moved back to LA to pursue his entertainment dreams. Chinedu began performing nightly anywhere he could, while teaching students with special needs until he figured out how to make a living through his passion.

In addition, he was featured on NUVO’s TV Stand Up and Deliver and was named as a top finalist at the Laughing Devil, Ventura Harbor, Burbank, San Diego and the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. Chinedu comedic talents were also seen early on TV in his own half hour comedy special on The Africa Channel as apart of Africa Laughs, which still continually airs internationally on Time Warner Cable. Furthermore, his name can be seen on the credits as writer for a comedy project that was aired for SHOWTIME.
