Laughter is the best medicine. And who better to make us laugh than one of our favorite comedians and long-time RTM guests Ben Gleib? The RTM hosts caught up with Ben over Zoom — and he's been busy!

Because comedy could no longer be in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ben and Steve Hofstetter invented the world's first virtual comedy club, Nowhere Comedy Club. Every Saturday, comedians perform in front of three large screens that broadcast live audience members! Ben performs as a cast of hilarious characters in "Gleib Off the Top: Crowd Work and Improvised Madness." We even got a preview of some of those goofy personas he creates using camera filters!

In addition to inventing a new way to see comedy, Ben's one of the lead actors on a new Disney+ anthology series called “Just Beyond.” The show premiered on October 13th on the streaming service. He's also back on the road! His latest comedy tour "Descent Into Madness" has two more shows in Dallas, Texas and Vancouver, Canada in December. To get tickets, visit his website!
