With Internet Week booting up Monday, organizers of the annual tech-stravaganza have just sent word that none other than Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer will do the opening keynote conversation. The Broad City co-creators are slated to chat with Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwide at the fest’s headquarters, the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. Let’s hope they spill some details on their new film deal with Paul Feig.
Last year’s opening keynote featured Bill de Blasio announcing a $10 million tech education initiative, so this is a bit of a changeup. But it makes sense: Abbi and Ilana are, after all, consummate VChatters, as you can see above. And their co-star Hannibal Buress is hosting the Webby Awards, also on Monday. Plus, there’ll be a panel discussion on “The Digital Side of the Cannabis Industry” (BYOBong, jk).
You’ll have to buy a pass to get in on the action — they start at $45 for students and go all the way up to $950 for VIPs.
