[dropcap]S[/dropcap]tand-up comedian Nikki Glaser returned to television this year with Comedy Central’s Not Safe With Nikki Glaser. With a rotating panel of comedians, the host and executive producer discusses all things sex- and dating-related. Glaser discusses her attraction to comedy and life leading up to comedy in our video series Momentum: A Day in the Life, which offers viewers a glimpse into the busy lives of influential young celebrities.

“Being pretty was always a very big thing growing up,” Glaser recalls. “My sister was very, very beautiful and I was very not. Doing comedy is the greatest thing ever because you don’t have to do that, and I’ve since learned to let go of that.”

Letting go of superficial concerns allowed Glaser to become more open as a social commentator and a dedicated creative force behind her television show. “Nikki is one of the hardest working people I know,” her boyfriend and co-producer Chris Convoy says of the star, noting how much she contributes to every part of the series.

Even though Glaser spends much of her show and her stand-up expressing the most “flawed” parts of herself, the comedian refuses to sacrifice her self-esteem for her art. “I would much rather be someone with high self-esteem and less funny,” she admits.

Not Safe is in the middle of its first season currently.

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]hey may take their acting very seriously, but off camera, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are a couple of goofballs. When doing publicity for their new movie Passengers, the two stopped by BBC Radio 1 to match wits in a game of “Playground Insults.”

They both get in some pretty good digs, but Chris Pratt seals his victory with a well timed jab at Jennifer Lawrence’s anatomy.

 

Passengers is out in theaters on December 21, 2016.
