These 'Broad City' Season 4 Guest Stars Couldn't Be More Exciting
There are a lot of talented comedians working these days, but it's difficult to think of two funnier people than Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson. At their 2 Dope Queens podcast panel at Vulture Festival on Saturday, the comedians did a live-recording of the show, and the stars not only shared their pop-culture thoughts and featured some stand-ups, but got an inside scoop from a special guest — Broad City's Abbi Jacobson. And listen up, fans, because what Jacobson shared about Broad City's Season 4 guest stars will ave you very excited for these upcoming episodes.
It's no surprise that Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, the creators of Broad City, would be featured in some capacity during the comedy-heavy Vulture Festival, as their show redefined what a funny series could be. The fourth season of the Comedy Central television series airs in August, and at the panel, which Bustle attended, Jacobson teased the new episodes by revealing that RuPaul and Fran Drescher will guest star. The actor said that Ilana's on-screen outfits are based on Drescher's famous character on The Nanny, so the star has a special place in the Broad City ladies' hearts. Jacobson also said that Drescher "did all the noises without us asking", in reference to the character voices the comedian used throughout her career, so that's definitely going to be worth tuning in to see.
Another exciting guest star will be RuPaul, there to comfort fans in between seasons of Drag Race. "You guys are going to die," Jacobson told the crowd about the upcoming appearance. It's unclear whether RuPaul or Drescher will appear as themselves or new characters on Broad City, and fans will have to wait a few more months for the new season to find out.
Jacobson also revealed that these upcoming episodes are "about the same s**t", and that while the first three seasons of the show take place in the heat of summer, in these episodes it will be winter time. Can the start of Season 4 seriously hurry up already?
