I love Broad City. I first discovered it on a night when my date stood me up, so I instead spent the night eating chips in the bath and finally watching this show my BFF kept raving about. Let me just say, it was way better than the date could have been. So, when I got the opportunity to see Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson speak at a panel on Oct. 2 at The New Yorker Festival, I was thrilled, but I was also nervous. What if the women behind the Comedy Central show were not as cool IRL as I'd imagined them in my head? Well, I was not disappointed. Glazer and Jacobson were thoughtful, intelligent, witty, and downright hilarious. While being interviewed by The New Yorker television critic Emily Nussbaum, the pair of women charmed the audience with funny voices, hilarious re-enactments, and general awesomeness.
I wish every Broad City fan could have attended because it was great to see that the ladies behind this genius, provocative, smart, funny show are just as cool as you'd think they are, and then some. And, while I can't go back in time and bring you all with me, I can bring some of the night's funniest moments to you via Glazer and Jacobson's best quotes from the panel. Enjoy!
