Nikki Glaser: I’m Keeping Things Loose
Don’t let Nikki Glaser‘s winsome smile fool you. The girl packs a poignant potty mouth when a situation calls for it.

Nikki dove headfirst into stand-up out of high school, so while earning her English degree at U of Kansas the funny girl made good on her comedic aspiration... [Read More]
