Yesterday Comedy Central invited us to the preview of the series, Broad City. The show is about two Jewish American women in their twenties – Ilana and Abbi, who share their daily adventures of carelessness and frivolity in New York City, making the smallest and mundane events hysterical and disturbing to watch all at the same time.
Abbi is a 26 year old who works as a cleaner at a fitness centre. She hates her job and is also a struggling artist who dreams of pursuing her art full-time. Abbi is constantly trying to find a balance between being a responsible, self-sufficient adult and a fun-loving free spirit like Ilana.
Ilana is 23 years old and tries to avoid working as much as possible by taking breaks that last for hours. She is free-spirited and liberated, and finds a way to always drag Abbi into her escapades with hilariously unintentional consequences.
With comedic heavyweights including Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch, Janeane Garofalo, Michelle Hurst, Jason Mantzoukas and Amy Sedaris as guest stars, the critically acclaimed web series “Broad City” comes to Comedy Central as a half-hour scripted series created by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, and is based on their own experiences.
The preview was a very intimate one with only a few people invited. We were at SOHO in Sandton City and boy oh boy did we get spoiled. While we were watching bits and pieces of the show, we were getting pampered – massages, pedicures, manicures and of course FOOD!!
@KateGoliath busy on her phone whilst @AyandaMVP enjoyed watching the pilot during her pedicure.

My hands and fingers also got ‘fed’. 🙂
Broad City, will start airing on Wednesday the 5th April 2017 at 21h00 on Comedy Central, DStv Channel 122. Make time to watch it guys, it’s very interesting. 🙂
Thank you to Comedy Central, SOHO Sandton and Total Exposure for having us.
