Beard Of The Day – May 29th – Jon Glaser

jonglaserHow about a man with some good local roots, huh? Jon Glaser was born in Chicago, though he grew up in Michigan.. no one is perfect. After being a member of several sketch groups in college, Glaser would move back to Chicago and become a member of the mainstage cast at Second City, performing alongside other famous members like Adam McKay, Rachel Dratch and Scott Adsit. He also is a five-time Emmy nominee thanks to his work as a writer for Late Night with Conan O’Brien. If you’re an Adult Swim fan, you’ll likely know his work on creating Delocated though you might not recognize his face… since he wore a skimask all the time and distorted his voice. If you haven’t seen the show.. well in typical Adult Swim fashion it’s fucking weird. More recently, Glaser served as the arch nemesis of Leslie Knope on the wonderful Parks And Recreation in its final few seasons.

He’s also done plenty of work with former BotD H. Jon Benjamin which is always awkward and delightful.
