PASADENA, CA, January 15, 2018 – Comedy Central, the #1 brand in comedy, will launch its first-ever live daily morning show on SiriusXM’s Comedy Central Radio (channel 95). You Up with Nikki Glaser will premiere in February and will broadcast live every Monday through Thursday from 10:00 am to noon ET / 7:00 am to 9:00 am PT with repeats throughout the week.
Fans will get to listen in as Glaser and her best friend and touring buddy, Tom Thakkar, do what they’ve been doing in comedy club greenrooms across the country for years: oversharing about their personal lives, getting and giving perspective on dating and sex, dissecting pop culture, trying to understand the news, and making fun of whatever or whoever else deserves it.
You Up with Nikki Glaser marks the second original show to launch on Comedy Central Radio following The Bonfire with Big Jay Oakerson and Dan Soder, a daily show which airs Monday through Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET.
