Broad City Ladies Go Historical On Stephen Colbert

by Becky Nash

Pretty much everything that the Broad City ladies do is so on point and silly it’s absurd. In order to celebrate the first female presidential nominee of a major political party, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer joined Stephan Colbert on the Late Show last night dressed as colonial women from 1776. They play the roles of two (fictional) female delegates from the continental congress named Josephine Henley and Abitha Whitmore. Upon hearing the news of this historical event, Ilana Glazer yells “You hear that Ben Franklin? Women are on top! And Not just your French Whores!”. However, after figuring out how long it took for this to happen, Abbie Jacobson shouts “What the butter is wrong with you people?!?”. She has a good point… it is preposterous that it took over two centuries. Check out the video below.
