Ben Gleib has a history of making everything he shows up on a little bit better, as proved by his numerous appearances over the past several years on “At Midnight” and “Chelsea Lately,” or his voice work in “The Book of Life” and “Ice Age: Continental Drift.”
Well, he has his own television comedy game show, “Idiotest,” on the Game Show Network, and his “Last Week on Earth With Ben Gleib” pop culture podcast is approaching its 200th episode, which also proves he can be more than just a guest on someone else’s show.
Gleib’s comedy relies on quick wit and improvisational skills. See it for yourself during his standup show at Cobb’s Comedy Club on Thursday, Oct. 12. He’s set for one show only at 8 p.m.
