With two episodes of Comedy Central’s “Not Safe With Nikki Glaser” behind us, the series started to fall into its own during episode 3. Continuing to highlight the off-color aspects of the modern dating world, Tuesday's installment focused heavily on its guests and pre-written segments to bring on the laughs.
In addition to her outrageous sketches and pre-taped interviews, each week comedian Nikki Glaser enlists the help of some of her comedic friends to crack jokes about the topic at hand. After last week’s episode took on the topic of sending nude pictures to a significant other, this one brought things closer to the bedroom with the concept of dirty talk. To do this, the 31 year old had help from standup comic Kyle Kinane. Together, they fed lines to porn actors during a scene. Meanwhile, back in the studio, Glaser asked her two guests for the evening, comedians Esther Povitsky and Chris D’Elia, about their experiences with dirty talk in the bedroom. However, because they're comedians, their answers ended up being more hilarious than truthful.
In addition to dirty talk, the episode highlighted a topic that anyone whose best friend has ever started dating someone can relate to. In a pre-taped sketch, Glaser presented a commercial for a service called “Best Friends Forgotten.” The premise of the sketch is that she is developing a meetup company for all of the single people in the world that now have no one to hang out with since their friends started dating their significant others.
“A stray who needs your companionship after being abandoned by a friend who chose a sexual relationship over one that was based on Crunchwrap Supremes and ‘Big Lebowski’ quotes,” she says in the video below, sporting all the seriousness of a typical charity commercial. “These innocent creatures have no one with whom to share their lives.”
“Not Safe With Nikki Glaser” airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. EST on Comedy Central. Tune in next week to see what outrageous taboo topic the comedian and her friends will discuss next.
