    Ben Gleib

     

    Ben Gleib is a standup comedian, actor, and TV host, best known as a round table regular on the hit show “CHELSEA LATELY” on E! appearing on the show over 85 times.

    He is the voice of Marshall the Sloth in 20th Century Fox’s “ICE AGE – CONTINENTAL DRIFT” which is now the #1 animated movie of all-time internationally, and is one of the stars of Kevin Smith’s new movie “JAY AND SILENT BOB’S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE.”

    ESQUIRE named him one of “Six comedians who could be comedy’s next big thing.”

    He just worked for THE OSCARS, hosting The Academy’s first ever “Oscar Roadtrip,” which was featured on ABC’s “OSCARS PRE-SHOW.” Ben was also a guest star this season on the popular E! scripted series “AFTER LATELY” Gleib also makes appearances as a guest correspondent on CNN, sharing his comedic take on politics.

    His weekly podcast, LAST WEEK ON EARTH WITH BEN GLEIB, on the Smodcast Network, debuted on iTunes as the #9 Comedy Podcast in the world, and was #1 on Stitcher for over 20 straight weeks. He was recently on tour performing to sold-out Arenas all over North America opening for Dane Cook. Gleib was one of the stars of the SyFy series “INSANE OR INSPIRED?” hosted “DOG PARK SUPERSTARS” and “GSN LIVE” for GSN, hosted the webseries “BEHIND ENEMY LINES” for Yahoo!, “IS IT MANLY?” for Egotastic, and the official “LIVE RED CARPET” for “The Grammys.” He also starred in the NBC primetime comedy series THE REAL WEDDING CRASHERS, recently hosted DOG PARK SUPERSTARS and GSN LIVE for GSN, and has appeared on “GOOD MORNING AMERICA,” “SPORTSCENTER,” “VH1′S BIG MORNING BUZZ LIVE,” “EXTRA,” “ACCESS HOLLYWOOD LIVE,” and THE GREENROOM with PAUL PROVENZA on SHOWTIME. He will also be voicing two characters in the popular Disney animated series “PHINEAS AND FERB,”

    Gleib has performed his standup on THE LATE LATE SHOW on CBS, and on NBC on LAST CALL with CARSON DALY and LAST COMIC STANDING. He also makes frequent appearances talking politics on NPRnpr_logo%5B1%5D.png on PATT MORRISON’S COMEDY CONGRESS, for which they recently won a prestigious GOLDEN MIC Award.

    When in Los Angeles, he can often be seen performing at the legendary Hollywood Improv ImprovLogo.jpg

    No stranger to the internets, Gleib’s online videos have received a total of more than 15 MILLION VIEWS. In 2010 he did comedic news pieces for Myspace. This was the first time they have ever given anyone a talent deal, and his videos were reviewed as “The best thing Myspace has ever done.”

    In 2006 he sold a pilot called THE GLEIB SHOW to FOX fox_tv_logo-med-small_1.jpg produced by Saturday Night Live’s Lorne Michaels and NBC/Universal. Before that “The Gleib Show” ran for 3 seasons as the #1 show on the National Lampoon Network, airing to millions of college students across the country. And even before that, he did it for 4 years in college, at The University of California, San Diego, where his show was the subject of his Honors Thesis, and even became a class that students could take for 4 units. This helped several of his close friends graduate. He was asked to speak at his graduation, and filled it with lots of inappropriate jokes and a Bill Clinton impression.

    An LA native, Gleib is a unique voice in comedy, known for a wide range of material, and quick improvisational skills. A versatile performer, he recently shot five other pilots, including a pilot for FOX called "Naked But Funny,” "WTF?” for GSN, a BET improv comedy show called “Get It In” on which he was the only white cast member, and “CQC” a comedic news show where he got to mess with with Barack Obama, Bill & Hillary Clinton, and ruined a John McCain press conference, getting kicked out by the secret service. Gleib can also can be seen in a supporting role in the feature film, “Bar Starz” a comedy with Charlie Murphy that can be seen on Netflix.

    A workaholic, he has also hosted several pods for CURRENT TV, hosted a webseries called “COUCH CRASHERS” for Playboy’s non-adult division, wrote a monthly column for “Saturday Night Magazine,” and appeared as a guest on FOX REALITY CHANNEL’s REALITY REMIX , TV GUIDE CHANNEL’s REALITY CHAT, and No Good TV’s Up Close with Carrie Keegan(ngtv.com).

    He used to write for Collegehumor.com – one of the most popular sites on the internet, and was the voice of Dirk Melvin on the animated series “THE MELVIN BROS.” on gopotato.tv (and youtube.) Gleib is consistently in the Top 10 on the syndicated radio show “Comedy Countdown” (also on XM,) and is a regular on SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO. In addition, he has written the RADIO MUSIC AWARDS for ABC ABC-logo.jpg, and hosted a pilot for E! called CASUAL FRIDAYS.

    He has performed in the Vancouver Comedy Festival, the Laughing Matters Festival in the Netherlands, and was selected “Best of the Fest” at the Just For Laughs Chicago Comedy Festival. He has also performed with The Satiristas, alongside Janeane Garofalo, and Henry Rollins.

    In 2006 he released his first comedy album, titled “NOT AVAILABLE IN STORES.” His second album is due out soon. As soon as he can decide on a title.

    Random facts include… when he was still in college he pranked his way onto THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO, and a memorable episode of BLIND DATE, pretending he was an Israeli guy with no social skills, and had one of the most awkward dates ever. For his college talk show, Carmen Electra was his last guest, and Gleib was featured all over her E! True Hollywood Story.

    He is proudest that he can probably eat more than you.

    Chinedu Unaka

    Chinedu loves entertaining. Having superstar comedians he grew up admiring share the stage with him and call him hilarious, funny, or a great writer has been one of his career highlights and a dream come true.
    Hailing from the Los Angeles area, this American born Nigerian is making a huge wave on the comedy scene. In addition, with his two degrees collecting dust from UCSB and LMU, he’s also a respected writer, and earth shattering youtube actor. CHINEDU has established himself as an intelligent comedic presence performing regularly at some of the country’s most renowned comedy clubs: The Hollywood Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, The Comedy Union, The Jspot Comedy Club, Ventura Harbor Comedy Club, Comedy Hideaway, and Flappers just to name a few. As well as independently touring colleges nationwide annually.


    Most recently, Chinedu competed in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity 2013 making it all the way past the 3rd round and waiting to hear back if he made the finals in November. In addition, he has just been confirmed to be on NUVO’s TV second season of Stand Up and Deliver Comedy Show being taped at The Hollywood Improv in September.

    A writer for televised comedians and viral YouTube sketch comedy groups; Chinedu has been labeled by audiences, comedians, bookers, and his mother as clever energy – with jokes that are original, universal, hysterical, and as someone who is ready for primetime.
    Chinedu knows what’s FUNny plain and simple; when he is performing for shows always trust you will get your money and time worth. Just give Chinedu a spotlight and a mic, and enjoy the GENIUS.

     


    …Glad that’s over. Typing in third person has always been awkward for Chinedu, I mean for me.
