Treat Yo’ Self: Watch the First Episode of Broad City
2:24 pm, December 30th | by Colette McIntyre
Once upon a time, UCB NYC performers Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s Broad City was a little web series that made us laugh, weep, and believe in magic in a young girl’s heart. Now Broad City is a big time Comedy Central series that is bound to make us laugh, weep, and try to harness the magic in a young girl’s heart and use it for evil. Life is filled with love, light, and blessings, you guys.
The Amy Poehler-produced series, created by and starring Jacobson and Gazer, follows the two funny ladies as they “explore life, love and lipstick in the Big Apple.” After spending a year in development at FX, Broad City will finally debut on January 22nd on Comedy Central, but because of HOLIDAYS and NEW YEARS and NONDENOMINATIONAL TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY, the first episode is now available online. Featuring Fred Armisen as a creepy Craigslist creep and Hannibal Buress getting his heart broken, “What a Wonderful World” proves that our faith in Jacobson and Glazer’s creation wasn’t misplaced.
