Nikki Glaser Sets May Debut For HBO Comedy Special ‘Someday You’ll Die’

EXCLUSIVE: HBO announced on Thursday that its second hour-long comedy special from comedian and actress Nikki Glaser, Nikki Glaser: Someday You’ll Die, is set to debut on Saturday, May 11 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and will also be available for streaming on Max.

The special comes on the heels of Glaser’s 2022 HBO hour Good Clean Filth, which was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Comedy Special. Taped in front of a sold-out audience at the Moore Theater in Seattle, Washington last December, it sees her dive into a wide range of topics including why she doesn’t want kids, the harsh realities of aging, her sexual fantasies, and plans for her own death.

Written and performed by Glaser, Someday You’ll Die is directed by Emmy winner Hamish Hamilton. David Jammy, Chris Convy and Alex Murray served as its executive producers.

“I’m so grateful that once again, HBO has put their trust in me to say what I feel into a microphone while wearing a tiny dress,” Glaser told Deadline. “Someday I’ll die, and when I do, I hope I’m remembered for this performance (and this dress).”

Added Nina Rosenstein, EVP, HBO Programming, Late Night & Specials, “Nikki is at the top of her game and continues to fearlessly take on the most unexpected material in the most hilarious of ways. We are so happy to have her back for her second special with us.”

On the road now through September with her global stand-up tour “Nikki Glaser: The Good Girl,” Glaser has previously put out the specials Bangin’ and Perfect via Netflix and Comedy Central, respectively. The current host and executive producer of Lovers and Liars (formerly FGirl Island), a female spin-off of the Max and CW reality dating series FBoy Island, which premiered on The CW on April 11, Glaser has also hosted The Nikki Glaser Podcast for iHeartMedia and Will Ferrell’s Big Money Players Podcast Network since 2021. Previously, she hosted Not Safe with Nikki Glaser Comedy Central, prior to that co-hosting Nikki & Sara Live for MTV.

As an actress, Glaser has been seen in films like I Feel Pretty, Trainwreck and Punching the Clown, along with a number of series. Set to host Late Night at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on May 10, for Netflix Is a Joke Fest, the performer is repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Ginsburg Daniels Kallis.
