You Made It Weird #34: Nikki Glaser

Nikki Glaser (Last Comic Standing, You Had To Be There podcast) is one of the best, funniest and most interesting comedians we’ve had on to make it weird. Good Lord, it gets weird. I’m not just saying that. This one goes some places that made Pete’s face all flushed. And we left it in. Because that’s what we do. Incredible episode. Please enjoy!

  • This episode is one of my new favorites. I love that Nikki’s perspectives in the sex talk were so refreshingly honest and, for lack of a better word, “normal” (to me at least)… it’s so common for female comics to be overly raunchy and honest in the oversharing sort of way, but it’s great to hear a relatable viewpoint that falls in the middle of prudish and superfreak.

     
    Also – Rainforest Cafe – brilliant. Haha!

  • I’m very slowly working my way through the archives, and I feel compelled to say that this was a really amazing episode. Made me reconsider some things I’ve been having trouble with.

    So thanks for that.

  • JUST FUCK ALREADY!!!

    :D

    First episode I heard, I’m in love with Pete. The honesty radiates through the earbuds and into my soul. Very happy I get to hear a bunch more of this wonderful treat from here unto eternity. Thanks for being cool.

  • That was amazing. I read the comments before the show and was excited to see how weird weird could get. You took it to new levels, Pete. Nicely done.

  • [...] Nikki Glaser episode of You made it Weird with Pete Holmes Supremely funny comedy podcast hosted by Pete Holmes is especially funny with guest Nikki Glaser. You Made It Weird is also a good podcast that is like a diary into Pete Holmes’ life and way of being. It is completely funny and thought provoking and I just feel like all of the humans should know about this podcast.  [...]

  • Great episode. You mentioned a Myq Kaplan episode that would have probably come out already. I hope you are holding it so you can add an addendum with those questions you wanted to ask!

  • I just heard the podcast. It was great but I don’t get why people think they should date when they totally looked like friends unless it’s the type of person that thinks automatically of any male/female friendship as something romantic. Besides I would think Nikki Glaser would get tired of taking about Chelsea Peretti.

  • Fucking killed it.
    Probably the best episode yet. It was even weirder than these insanely weird comments would lead you to believe. The Oedipal/Electra Complex talk plus Pete’s weird, half-assed, quasi proposition at the end was the perfect crescendo.

  • I apologize in advance for this way-too-long-to-be-blog-comment comment. First of, love the show, I discovered it via a mention on Extra Hot Great and it has turned me into a total comedy nerd.

    1. I am an English teacher in the economic wasteland of southern Europe, teaching English to immigrants who need to learn it in order to feed their kids and live a semi-stable life (not in the same universe of bad as the 13-year-old ipod slaves, but lots of downward spiral potential nonetheless).

    I totally relate to your ‘inside baseball’ stuff. I think adult-ed type classes follow an arc similar to a comedy set–especially where a strong close is concerned. I love my students so much, and feel so personally invested in their success that the feeling after a great lesson where everyone’s engaged, confident and has obviously left the classroom with something they didn’t have before they arrived–I could seriously pirouette home. Ditto the onset of the sads for the opposite situation.

    2. I had no idea childless people could identify that change of focus from babying the husband to babying the baby that happens when a kid comes around. I hold out some hope that that returns once there are no longer kids in the house sucking every drop from our souls. Rewarding.

    3. You ain’t seen Oedipussy complex til’ you’ve seen it in Mediterranean lands where nobody moves out of mommy’s house until they are married. 99% of my conversations with my mother-in-law revolve around how beautiful, tall, brilliant and what a great provider my husband/her son is. It is excruciating. She looooves talking about how his shoes always look bad because he can never find his size here because his feet are so big. The day will come when she asks me about his oral sex skills, of this I am horrifically sure.

  • Listening to this episode was a bit like being the third wheel in a threesome. “Hold the flashlight higher, Josh.” “Yeah, just keep holding that flashlight, Josh.”

    Such a weird episode! Awesomely weird. Chris Hardwick might want to check if he got knocked up during his cameo. Seriously.

    Heh heh, “Hardwick”.

    Keep on keeping it crispy Pete!

  • Great episode. Your podcast is better than therapy. To hear the different perspectives on sex and relationships that you bring up is helping me more than anything with my own issues. Thank you for making it wierd.

  • Pete! Excellent ‘sode! How did you fuckers lay my own psyche bare with this! Slowly turning my skim to cream! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Don’t EVER stop!

  • I know that there was a lot of weird sex talk in this episode, including some “I was late to start” talk. I’m new to these forums, but what would you say is waaay late to start having sex? I guarantee I’m above it (he said depressingly).

  • Really digging this Keeping it Crusty with Pat Helms podcast.

    Lots of laughs and watching Pat go through what most of us went through in college is very fun. Frankly I still enjoy talking about that stuff many years later even though it seems no new ground is ever gained!

  • Wha…………….t just happened?

    I feel like both Freuds junk punched me while Durkheim the Nogoodnik just giggled. And then it was also hilarious. And your parent issues and semi-alcoholism made me feel better about my mild panic attacks and addictive personality. It got real weird. You had me feeling things, guys.

  • After re-reading my post I stand by my statement. I cannot abide this! Concerned hater: you, sir or madam are an oxymoron! When I hear two people I like connect, I immediately hope that they make babies together thus creating more people I like. If this is wrong then I don’t wanna be right! Make it WEIRD!!

  • I hope you don’t have to deal with people saying they “I hope you don’t have to deal with creepy commenters suggesting who you should date. Especially when they say ‘you went deep’ in all-caps.”. That would be weird.

  • I hope you don’t have to deal with creepy commenters suggesting who you should date. Especially when they say “you went deep” in all-caps. Weirdo does not mean creepjob, AJ.
