Ben Gleib: An actor, stand up comedian, satirist, and writer, Gleib was called by Esquire one of "the six comedians who could be comedy's next big things" and part of a "a bumper crop of brilliant new-alt comics" [1]

Gleib was the voice of Sid the Sloth’s younger brother Marshall in ”Ice Age: Continental Drift,” which is now the #1 animated movie of all-time internationally! He is a regular round table guest on the E! late night talk show Chelsea Lately, and has been appearing on the show since January 2008.[2] He is a frequent guest on KPCC (Southern California's NPR affiliate) on the Patt Morrison Program, bringing his comedic spin to political issues. He also reported for KPCC live from the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. He starred in the NBC series The Real Wedding Crashers, a prime time comedy that aired on the network Mondays at 10pm, with the show Heroes as a lead-in. The show also aired on BRAVO and STYLE Network. In 2009 he performed his standup on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly, and in 2008, Gleib was featured on the NBC competition show Last Comic Standing. He is known for covering a wide range of topics in his act, including political and social commentary, but is also known for his improvisational skills, often making up large sections of his performance based on interactions with the crowd. A recent review of his stand up said "His persona has evolved to a satirical high...his act is laden with material that pays every time.“ In 2006, he sold a pilot called The Gleib Show to Fox, produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, Broadway Video, and NBC/Universal. This show was based on a TV show that Gleib directed, wrote, and starred in for three seasons on the National Lampoon Network from 2003–2005, which aired to college campuses across the country, and was consistently the network's number one show. It was also written and produced by Scot Richardson. The show was based on a show of the same title that Gleib did for four years during his time as an undergrad at the University of California, San Diego. At UCSD he studied Communications and Theater, and graduated in the Honors Thesis Program. He was a commencement speaker at his graduation. Ben Gleib appears in a supporting role in the feature film Bar Starz, which had a limited theatrical release. The film also featured Charlie Murphy, Daniel Franceze, Derek Waters, John Bernthal, and Nikki Griffin. In addition, Gleib has performed on The Late Late Show on CBS, at the Vancouver Comedy Festival, the Laughing Matters Festival in the Netherlands, hosted several pods for Current TV, and in 2002 wrote the "Radio Music Awards" for ABC.
