Nikki Glaser stars in her own weekly Comedy Central series about sex and comedy, Not Safe¬†with Nikki Glaser, and will release her first hour stand-up special this weekend on the network: Perfect. Glaser started stand-up young enough to land on both Last Comic Standing and The Tonight Show by the end time she was 24. She previously co-hosted a late-night talk show on MTV called Nikki & Sara Live, and also regularly appears on her friend’s award-winning comedy series, Inside Amy Schumer.

Glaser took a few minutes today to fill me in on everything, all the way back to her beginnings, and how five-year planning has served her very well.

So let’s get to it!
