Anniversary Party Spotlight: Broad City


We’re counting down the days until BUST's 20th Anniversary Extravaganza (8! Just 8!) and we know the wait is killing you. Taking a peak at our heaping list of performers and guests. I personally cannot wait to see this comedic duo.


Last year, we gave you the scoop on the hilarious web series Broad City, created by New York comedians Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. Now, after sealing a deal with Comedy Central alongside executive producer Amy Poehler (AHHH!), the ladies are gearing up to premiere their hilariously awkward hit series on television next year.



If you haven’t been in the loop on this one, get with it. Get in this loop. The series has been featured in The New York Times and TIME, and it’s pretty much the best Internet series since The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl (high honors, we know!).

Check out a classic episode below. The premise: Abbi and Ilana get caught up in yet another awkward encounter with a friend on a subway platform: 



And because I love them so much, I added an extra epi. This one’s called “Do the Right Thing,” and it’s the dance number we’ve all wanted to perform after being cat-called. Seriously, just watch it:



Snag some tickets to our Extravaganza here to see them in person! And for more info/overwhelmingly exciting updates, keep tabs on our event page. See you July 25th!
