“My set is about where I am as a woman in this world,” explains comedian Nikki Glaser. “Part of me is supposed to be an adult and the other part is a really immature teenager, and I’m grappling with that on a day-to-day basis.” A solid joke writer, Glaser recently appeared on The Conan O’Brien Show. No small feat, as O’Brien is one of her two idols (the other being musician Dave Matthews). The shows at Go Bananas this week mark a sort of homecoming for Glaser. She lived here until the age of 6, when she moved with her family to St. Louis. She’s looking forward to coming back to the Queen City. “I love going to Cincinnati,” she says. “My grandma lives in Clifton, so I like to go down to Ludlow Avenue. I see more people I know in Cincinnati than I do in St. Louis. … We haven’t been back in a while. This will be my first time headlining there, so it’s a big deal. I’m really excited.” $8-$12. Through Sunday, Nov. 4. Go Bananas, Montgomery. 513-984-9288, gobananascomedy.com.
