Who is Niles Abston?

You have heard Niles Abston’s jokes on Netflix's I Think You Should Leave and FX's Dave. However, those gigs came after he taped his first special and put it online. Recorded in a friend’s living room, Girls Don’t Twerk to Jokes, the special launched Abston into the mix, and he’s now poised to release a feature film he’s been working on. However, his comedy is not to be missed. Full of show, brilliant observations that burn slowly like perfect joke candles, Abston is an absolute killer on stage, and if you’re looking for the best of what comedy currently has to offer, Abston is a great stand-up to start with.

Vulture has even said as much.
