Instant Follow Friday: Broad City’s Yas Queen Goddesses Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer
Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Broad City’s creators and powerhouse comics who also happen to be our #WCW’s week after week, first started Broad City as a webseries. Now, with its cult following in tow, it’s one of the best shows to watch on Comedy Central with Seasons 4 and 5 already confirmed.
Broad City is one of the best (perhaps the best) depictions of New York City life for the twenty-something-year-old woman, and watching it is like seeing you and your BFF keeping it real on screen. From having to trek to the ends of the earth (aka North Brother Island) to recover a missed package to trying to buy/steal back an air conditioner to hanging out in St. Marks, Broad City really makes NYC recognizable as a force of (often sassy) nature of its own. In the end, all you’ve got are your friends, your crappy roommates, your bad dates and your shenanigans. In that case, you’d best make every moment a yas queen memory.
