A truly unique voice in comedy, Gleib has been a regular on-air contributor to CNN and NPR (where he won a Golden Mic award,) is an accomplished voice over actor ("The Book of Life," "Ice Age: Continental Drift" - the second highest grossing animated movie of all-time internationally, and is one of the stars of "Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie") and this year, co-anchored "The Young Turks," and a week of "ABC News Digital" from their world news headquarters in New York. Unusual gigs for a comedian, and examples of why he is one of the most multi-talented comics in the country.
Gleib is one of the leads in the feature film "Bad People" currently on iTunes and Amazon. You may also have seen him as the host of ABC's "Oscar Roadtrip" featured during the Pre-show of the 85th Academy Awards, as the star of the NBC primetime hidden camera series "The Real Wedding Crashers," his memorable guest star on the E! scripted series "After Lately," or from his recent webseries "Cinedopes" available for free on Youtube.
Esquire once called Ben Gleib one of "six comedians who could be comedy's next big thing." The other 5 were Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Demetri Martin, and Flight of the Conchords. It came true for each of them, and it now seems to be Gleib's time.
