Nikki Glaser Interview

She needs to come on monthly. She was highly entertaining.

DC9324 ,

Nah!

Ryen - Huge fan for the past 5 years but PLEASE don’t ever have Nikki Glaser on again. She was not funny and pretty painful to listen to. I’d rather listen to Kanell crap on the SEC for 50 hours straight than another 30 minute Life Advice with Nikki.
