At age 18, Glaser began writing jokes and performing stand-up comedy, and she has said of this time, "I wrote from the perspective of my favorite stand-ups because I didn't know what my perspective was yet."

Glaser moved in with her parents in St. Louis during the COVID-19 pandemic and has said "There's something really about this time that makes you want to be with people you love and who love you unconditionally. And, for me, that's just my parents."
