Biography: A comedian since his grammar-school days, Gleib went from class clown to hidden-camera jokester while attending UC San Diego. After graduation, he honed his stand-up skills at famed Los Angeles clubs the Laugh Factory and the Improv, riffing irreverently on the minutiae of life, and developed a stock of outrageous characters like the talent-free Bloom Satchets, the World's Greatest Street Performer. His riotous antics landed him a gig as host of his own eponymous show on the college network National Lampoon Network. Gleib cracked up underclassmen with his bits, and even Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels became a fan and helped him develop the show as a Fox pilot. In 2007, Gleib landed a plum part as a paid prankster on the Punk'd-like reality laugher The Real Wedding Crashers, playing a series of guests from hell.
