“The Nikki Glaser Podcast” features a fun, fast-paced and brutally honest look into current pop culture events and her own personal life
NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES – March 15, 2021 – Will Ferrell’s and iHeartMedia’s Big Money Players Network (BMP) and Nikki Glaser, acclaimed stand-up comedian, actress, radio host and television host, today announced "The Nikki Glaser Podcast." The daytime talk show style podcast with late-night grit will be hosted by infamous roaster Nikki Glaser and will premiere March 22, with new episodes airing each Monday through Thursday. Listeners can hear the official audio trailer now on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard.
“The Nikki Glaser Podcast” is a daily companion podcast that will be peppered with Glaser’s sense of humor and honesty to help keep listeners sane, well-informed and laughing through life. In each episode, Glaser and her co-host, stand-up comic Andrew Collin, will discuss the latest in pop culture, news, entertainment and life—delving into honest discussions about dating, sex, relationships, mental health, motivational advice and more. The podcast will feature various laugh-out-loud segments including Between You and Me, You Heard it Here First!, Mental Health Moment, Is It Textual? (Or Sexual…) and many more. Plus, once a week the pair will welcome a special celebrity guest to help perfect the perfect bit, get advice on tackling the things they’ve been avoiding, or just learn how to do some pretty average things.
“It's cool as hell that ‘The Nikki Glaser Podcast’ is a part of Will Ferrell’s and iHeartMedia’s Big Money Players Network because Will Ferrell is one of the funniest people alive, and so it makes me feel like I finally got invited to the cool kids table in the lunchroom in middle school, except this time to stay there I won't have to smoke cigarettes and beg my mom to buy me dELiA*s clothes that our family can't afford,” said Glaser. “It was important for me to do a daily show because I want to engage with listeners and give them something to look forward to as often as possible. As a podcast listener, frequency is something I crave, as well as silliness, real friendships, honest conversations and a fast-paced format. ‘The Nikki Glaser Podcast’ is going to be all of these and if it's not, you'll get your money back – which is no money because this podcast is free.”
"We are thrilled to have the wildly talented Nikki Glaser join us at the Big Money Players Network,” said Ferrell. “But in order to do so, she will have to smoke cigarettes and purchase her wardrobe from dELiA*s Spring collection."
Big Money Players Network launched in October 2019 and is home to top comedic talent across a variety of formats and styles – both scripted and unscripted. “The Nikki Glaser Podcast” will join leading comedy podcasts including “Las Culturistas with Matt Rogers and Bowen Yang,” “My Momma Told Me with Langston Kerman,” “POOG with Kate Berlant and Jacqueline Novak,” “Bald Talk,” “True Romance with Carolina Barlow and Devin Leary” and the upcoming “Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Podcast.” All BMP podcasts are executive produced by Will Ferrell and iHeartMedia and are distributed through the iHeartPodcast Network.
