Parents have a huge impact on their children’s lives. Whatever success we acquire in life, we owe it all to them first for bringing us into this world, for raising us, and for always rooting for us.
While experiences may differ from one person to another, some were lucky enough to be raised by two loving parents who always had their back.
Let’s look at one person in particular: Rick Glassman. Who is he?

Rick Glassman is an American comedian, actor, and writer who has been making audiences laugh for years.
He was born on July 23, 1984 in Shaker Heights, Ohio, United States.

Rick Glassman Parents
Glassman’s family keeps a very low profile. He has a brother, Matt Glassman.
His father, Steve Glassman, is the president of the carpet store, ‘Marshall Carpet One And Rug Gallery,’ a position he has held since 1996.
Before venturing into the carpet business, Steve worked as a restauranteur until the early 90’s.
Rick refers to his mother as ‘The Queen,’ or ‘Momma Glassman,’ but her real name is not known. She is of Italian descent.
Rick shares a very close relationship with his parents. His father has been featured in his podcasts several times. He also shares pictures of them on his social media accounts.
From Rick’s interactions with Steve, it is possible to deduce that Rick got his sense of humor from his father.
Rick often posts photos of him and his mother on his social media accounts, and features her on his podcast.
Rick’s mom is a huge fan of the musical show Wicked.
Rick often spends time with his grandmother, Gloria Glassman.
With his father being of Jewish descent, Rick was born into a Jewish family. In June 2018, he shared a funny skit video of his Jewish family getting together, which featured his parents and cousin, Danny.
Despite being an accomplished businessman, and having a son on the spotlight, Steve has succeeded in keeping his family’s personal life private.
Rick also honors his parents’ (especially his mom’s) wish to lead a quiet and private life away from the media. Whenever he speaks about his mother, Rick is very keen on keeping her name private.
