A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Though the show is raunchy, it does send positive messages about being open regarding sexual subjects.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Glaser is open, often candid.

Violence
Sex

The show's cornerstone is crass, crude sexual humor, which means mentions of STDs, fetishes, underage sex, and lots more discussed at length. Nudity is blurred or blacked out.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

"Goddamn," "bitch," "d-ck," "s--t"; "f--k" bleeped.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Not Safe with Nikki Glaser is part talk show, part sketch comedy, and definitely isn't for kids. It features lots of crude and sexually explicit humor (nudity is blurred or blacked out), cursing ("f--k" is bleeped), and lots of references to drinking and drug use. Though sex and promiscuity are celebrated, it also sends the message that talking about it isn't shameful or wrong.

What's the story?

NOT SAFE WITH NIKKI GLASER is an adult-oriented comedy show starring stand-up comedian Nikki Glaser. The former Nikki & Sara Live cohost, popular Inside Amy Schumer guest star, and podcast celebrity offers her thoughts about and comments on sex-related topics. Adding to the fray are skits, field pieces, and special guests, including fellow comedians such as Rachel Feinstein and Rory Scovel.

Is it any good?

This raunchy series offers a half hour of often funny, always crude jokes about topics ranging from dating moments to specific sexual acts and fetishes. But though there are moments where the banter gets tiresome, the skits and running gags are well performed and at times laugh-at-loud funny.

The humor won't be to everyone's taste, but in between the bawdiness are messages about the fact that people, especially women, should be able to talk openly about sex and related subjects without shame. Not everyone will find this message empowering, but fans of this comedy style will certainly appreciate it.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the role of sex and sex-related themes in comedy. Why are these topics funny? is it appropriate for kids to be listening, reading, or watching it, even if it’s just mild innuendo?

  • Many films and TV shows that contain sexually explicit material are meant for adults, but can they still go too far? Where do people draw the line?
