Ben Gleib Premieres his Comedy Special “The Mad King” In Los Angeles

by | Feb 25, 2023

Last month, Editor-at-Large Heather Duffy was on the red carpet for the Los Angeles Inquisitor as Ben Gleib premiered his latest comedy special, “The Mad King”, to a Los Angeles audience of celebrities and fans from his loyal squad called The Mad Ones.

Gleib is considered one of the innovators that changed comedy during the COVID lockdown when he founded Nowhere Comedy Club, creating the world’s first virtual comedy venue and earning multiple profiles in the New York Times.

TBS called him one of “the funniest comedians working today.” This event was one of the first times that The Mad Ones assembled in person, coming from all over the world for the premiere, even as far as Australia.

Gleib was the longtime host of the show “Idiotest” (Netflix), was a regular on “Chelsea Lately” (E!), has done more than 400 episodes of television, and his online videos have surpassed 300 million views. He is one of the lead anchors on “The Young Turks.”

His Mad King special has received excellent reviews, with Nikki Glaser describing his show as “Bill Burr-level good, without question.” George Carlin’s daughter, Kelly, said Gleib’s comedy reminds her of her father.


The comedy special is now available on Helium Comedy Studio’s YouTube channel and he is doing a worldwide virtual show this Saturday called “Gleib Off The Top: Crowd Work and Improvised Madness”, a very out-of-the-box comedy show he’s been doing now for nearly three years. You can get tickets here
