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.

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.

Watch 'Broad City's Perfectly Executed NYC Subway Scene
