According to the Advocate, veteran comic Todd Glass came out today on comedy podcast WTF with Marc Maron, to the surprise of many in the comedy world.
Glass — who has appeared on series like ‘The Sarah Silverman Program,’ ‘Louie,’ ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien,’ and ‘Politically Incorrect’ — says he’s been with his partner for 15 years, and decided to come out in response to gay teen suicide.
“I cannot listen to stories about kids killing themselves any longer and not [think], When are you going to have a little blood on your shirt for not being honest about who you are? I can’t do this any longer,” the Advocate reports.
Glass was introduced by Jeremy Piven at the 2008 Just for Laughs Gala, which you can watch below.
