Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer (Broad City)    

Stars of the Comedy Central Series "Broad City"

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer were the executive producers and stars of Broad City, which was one of Comedy Central's highest rating shows. Amy Poehler is one of Broad City's executive producers, and appeared in the series' season one finale.

Their show has been described as providing "sneak attack feminism" and was met with critical acclaim. Guest stars on the series included Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch, Janeane Garofalo, Michelle Hurst, Jason Mantzoukas and Amy Sedaris, among others.

Past topics at their talks have included yoga, dating, giving a homeless person money, running to get the last cookies at a favorite bakery, and buying pot for the first time in a long time and they perfectly capture the minutia of Big Apple life and all of the awkwardness, worrying, and idealism associated with it. (And just like their Manhattan-centric progenitor Woody Allen, they aren't afraid to use jazz scores.)


How Broad City Became the Greatest Show on Television
At 8 a.m. on one of the coldest days of the winter, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson are thawing on a couch in a regal room at New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel in midtown. The duo have just returned from Los Angeles (Glazer was shooting a miniseries, Jacobson “just working”), and now they are in the thick of promotion for the third season of Broad City, their zeitgeisty, boundary-pushing show, which is hands down the funniest, most tightly produced 25 minutes on television.
‘Broad City’ Returns
Abbi and Ilana are back for season three of Broad City and they're bringing with them some of their favorite bands, including the Grateful Dead. In a teaser for the new season, Abbi Jacobson sports a Dead tee in one breakfast scene and also has a Grateful Dead poster in her room.
