Early life

Glazer is the daughter of Sandi and Larry Glazer, who both work in insurance and finance. She grew up in a Reform Jewish family in St. James, New York, on Long Island and is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Her brother, Eliot Glazer, is a producer, writer and actor with whom she has worked on shows like The Boys Presents: Diabolical and Broad City where he plays her brother.

Glazer graduated from New York University in 2009, majoring in psychology.

Broad City

Development

In 2009, along with co-creator Abbi Jacobson, Glazer began shooting Broad City, a web series starring the two as fictionalized versions of themselves. The series was nominated for an ECNY Award for ‘Best Web Series’ and was positively received, garnering attention from major media outlets such as Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal. The series caught the attention of Amy Poehler, who subsequently met with Glazer and Jacobson to help them shop a pilot script based on the series. Poehler also agreed to star in the web series finale.

In 2011, cable network FX, working with Poehler as the producer, purchased a script commitment for the series from Glazer and Jacobson. However, the network did not approve the script and decided not to proceed with development. Glazer and Jacobson then approached Comedy Central, who agreed to purchase the script from FX and order a pilot.

From 2012 to 2014, Glazer co-created the web series Chronic Gamer Girl with Alex Charak.
