Todd Glass’ First Time
Todd Glass cares more about stand-up than anyone I’ve ever met. From the pre-show announcements to the lighting in the showroom to the vibe in the green room, Todd takes control and lets you know you’re in for an experience. Todd started stand-up at 16 and loves all the little nuances that the audience (and other comics) might not even realize. We talk about those nuances, his writing process, anger, and Jager (we’ve done A LOT of Jager shots together.)
