When incidences of LGBT kids committing suicide were on the rise, American stand-up comedian Todd Glass utilized his platform to come out as gay. That happened in 2012 when his 15-year-old unknown boyfriend was revealed.
Todd Glass is best known for appearing on the second and third seasons of NBC’s Last Comic Standing as a contestant. Vintage Todd Glass and Other Crap, Thin Pig, Todd Glass Talks About Stuff, and Todd Glass: Act Happy are among Todd’s four stand-up albums.
Todd Glass is the king of the comedy industry, with a successful podcast show
Todd Steven Glass was born on December 16, 1963, in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and began performing stand-up comedy in 1982, while still in high school. His comedic flair landed him on shows like An Evening at the Improv and a slew of Comedy Central stand-up specials.
Todd rose to prominence after appearing in the second and third seasons of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Since then, the 54-year-old comedian has been on numerous shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and The Dennis Miller Show.

In 2001, he had his own Comedy Central Presents special and, with Jimmy Dore and Stefané Zamorano, co-hosted the podcast Comedy And Everything Else.
Todd’s latest podcast, The Todd Glass Show, premiered in August 2011 and was named the #1 podcast by the Podcasters Association of America. Todd has an estimated net worth of $1.5 million, which should come as no surprise.
Todd Glass revealed his long-term relationship with his long-time boyfriend when he came out as gay
Todd came out as gay to the world in 2012, after reaching his breaking point with the rising number of young LGBT individuals committing themselves. On an episode of the podcast WTF with Marc Maron, the comedian was pushed by a sense of social obligation to utilize his platform as an example and revealed that he was gay.
‘When are you going to have a little blood on your shirt for not being honest about who you are?’ I can no longer listen to stories about kids killing themselves without thinking (to themselves).
Todd revealed that he had been in a non-public relationship with his mystery partner for 15 years until he came out as gay. And that was something that caught everyone off guard. Can you believe it’s been 15 years?
He hasn’t even hinted if he is still in a relationship with his long-term lover or whether he has broken up with his mystery companion.
While Todd’s gay romance with a concealed boyfriend appears to be fuzzy, he did nostalgically discuss his failed relationships in one of his stand-ups. We can only go on speculations and stories because the comedian is too greedy to disclose anything about his life with his boyfriend.
