We still don’t know when Broad City will return for its fifth season, but rest assured Abbi and Ilana are keeping busy in the writers room and out of it. First off, Ilana Glazer is teaming up with comic Phoebe Robinson to bring a leg of their YQY tour to New York City. (YQY = Yaaas Queen Yaaas, if you couldn’t guess.) They’ll be performing at Union Hall on April 24, 25, and 26, followed by a couple of shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 29 and 30. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Glazer and Robinson have teamed up. Glazer executive produces and appears on WNYC’s Soo Many White Guys podcast, where Robinson, perhaps best known as co-host of the 2 Dope Queens podcast with Jessica Williams, interviews “all kinds of artists who (mostly) aren’t white dudes.” Judging by a review of one of their previous stage shows, in Chicago, it’ll consist of the duo warming up the crowd for 10 minutes, flipping a coin to see who goes first, and then each doing 40-minute standup sets.
At the Chicago show, they spoke “in detail about their sex lives, their current partners (Glazer is married and Robinson has been dating the same man for three months) and their self-grooming habits,” the Tribune wrote.
Meanwhile, Abbi Jacobson recently made her dramatic debut at SXSW with Marja-Lewis Ryan’s 6 Balloons, and appeared on Drunk History as Gloria Steinem going undercover as a Playboy bunny. Next week, she’ll be coming back to The Chris Gethard Show when it returns to truTV with 10 new episodes. She’ll appear alongside Gethard, her fellow UCB alum, on the season premiere Tuesday, March 20 at 11pm. Last time she was a guest on the gonzo talk show, she drew a stranger’s genitals based on a mere verbal description and declared herself a “genital wizard.” You can watch that right above.
