Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer Will Be the First 'Chris Gethard Show' Guests on Fusion

The Chris Gethard Show tapes the very first episode of its Fusion era next week, and now we know the official premiere date, guests, and show topic. TCGS will make its big TV debut on Thursday, May 28th at 10:00pm, and Broad City's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer will appear as Gethard's very first guests, along with musical guest The Front Bottoms and show topic that's very much in line with TCGS's love for all things weird and misunderstood: "Show Us the Weirdest Thing About Your Body." Check out Gethard's full announcement above.

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer Talk 'Broad City' on 'The Daily Show'

Here's a clip from Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer's visit to last night's Daily Show, where they talked with Stewart about how Broad City went from a web series to a Comedy Central show, how their parents have responded to their fame, and the special person who called just for Abbi during Sunday's Night of Too Many Stars.

Staying Busy with 'Broad City's Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson

It's been a little over a year since Broad City premiered on Comedy Central, and since then stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson have been working nonstop. A lot has happened in the past year including a live tour and production on their second 10-episode season, and with with a season 3 already in the works, at least we have one Comedy Central gem that has no intention of going away anytime soon. I recently spoke with Glazer and Jacobson about what they learned from making season 1, how their show came to such a deft balance of New York City reality and absurdity, and their thoughts on [...]

Abbi Has a Laughing Gas Dance Party on This Week's 'Broad City'

If last week's Broad City taught us anything, it's that every episode should feature a scene of Abbi Jacobson gloriously expressing herself through the art of dance. Thankfully, this week's episode looks to be a perfect follow-up when Abbi and Ilana pay a visit to Lincoln the dentist/pasta blogger to get Abbi's wisdom teeth removed with the help of some nitrous oxide.

The 'Broad City' Ladies Bring Their Fashion A Game to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Broad City stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson decided to take a different, Dumb and Dumber-inspired wardrobe approach to their appearance on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live to keep things way more "LA late night" and "Hollywood" style, and the result is 100% fashion perfection. Watch another clip from their interview with Kimmel below:

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson Are Working on a Movie with Paul Feig

Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs aren't the only duo from Broad City with a movie in the works. THR reports that Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have sold an untitled comedy script to 20th Century Fox, and Bridesmaids' Paul Feig is attached to produce. Details on the film are being kept under wraps, but at this point Glazer and Jacobson are not attached to star. In any case, more movies written by the minds behind Broad City are always a good thing.

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson Play "Truth or Truth" on 'Tonight Show'

Broad City's Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson were guests on Friday's Tonight Show, where Jimmy Fallon challenged them to a game of "Truth or Truth" and, unsurprisingly, cracked up at all of their answers. Watch another clip from the interview below, in which Abbi explains why she gets anxiety now every time she enters a Bed Bath & Beyond.

Abbi and Ilana Get Trapped in the Internet on Next Week's 'Broad City'

From the New York City subway to laughing gas hallucinations to secret jazz clubs frozen in time, the Broad City ladies have gone on plenty of insane adventures this season, but next week's episode takes them on the most dangerous journey yet — the kind that happens when you spend too much time googling Judge Judy facts on the internet.

Get Empowered by Abbi Jacobson's Naked "Edge of Glory" Performance

What do you do when you have an apartment all to yourself and a thirst for some Lady Gaga hits? Just take a hint from Broad City's Abbi Jacobson: Get naked, blast "Edge of Glory," then soak up all the freedom and pleasure that arrives when your annoying roommate is nowhere to be found. Never stop dancing, Abbi.

Watch 'Broad City's Perfectly Executed NYC Subway Scene

Broad City premiered its second season on Comedy Central last night, and the episode opened with a brilliant scene following Abbi and Ilana as they navigate through the extremely uncomfortable wonderland known as a New York City subway train. If you live in New York or have ever visited only to spend long periods of time underground, this scene might hit a little too close to home. Thank goodness Comedy Central handed these two a season 3 renewal. Check out two more clips from the episode below:

Aidy Bryant and Conner O'Malley Appeared on Last Night's 'Broad City' Finale

Broad City's season 2 finale aired last night, and among the special guests were SNL cast member Aidy Bryant and Late Night writer Conner O'Malley as the last couple Abbi and Ilana would want to run into at a restaurant. It's probably safe to say that Aidy and Conner aren't this kind of couple offscreen considering they're a little too busy to get upset over things like unanswered Facebook event invites.

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson Show Off Some Micro-Impressions

Here's a clip from the Broad City ladies' visit to last night's Late Show, where they try to impress Letterman by showing off their best micro-impressions — Glazer does a one-second Nicki Minaj, while Jacobson shares her very minimal, yet still impressive, Rose from Titanic.

Talking with Writers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello About Last Night's Insane and Awesome 'Broad City' Episode

The fourth episode of Broad City's second season "Knockoffs" aired on Comedy Central last night, and if you've watched it by now, you know that some big things happen in terms of Abbi's ongoing crush on her neighbor Jeremy, not to mention we get the first look at Ilana's parents played by Susie Essman and Bob Balaban. Ahead of the episode's premiere, I spoke with "Knockoffs" writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs (who also plays Abbi's Soulstice boss Trey) about where the inspiration for the episode came from, whether they ran into any Standards & Practices problems with Comedy Central, and how Aniello approached the scenes with Abbi [...]

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer Interview Sleater-Kinney for 'NPR'

To celebrate the band's reunion and new album, NPR recently matched up Sleater-Kinney with Broad City's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer for a lengthy Q&A in New York that covers a ton of topics like the band's new tour, artistic approach, and thoughts on constantly getting pigeonholed into the "all-female" label. As if teaming up the stars of Broad City and Sleater-Kinney wasn't enough, the Q&A ends with a round of questions sent in from hardcore Sleater-Kinney fan Amy Poehler.
