Okay, we were just kidding about that new Garbage Pail Kids card being the height of Abbi Jacobson’s fame. As much as we love GPK, it doesn’t take some pun-happy Art Spiegelman wannabe to immortalize the Broad City co-creator– she’s actually a capable illustrator herself, and she has a nifty new book coming out. On Wednesday, Oct. 26, she and her Broad City co-star, Ilana Glazer, will talk about it at Space Ninety 8 in Williamsburg. Consider it an off-season reunion while you wait for Season 4 to drop.

Who needs a Girls tour bus? Finally, the diehard couch potatoes among us will be able to check out every haunt Ilana, Aziz or Lena have graced on their shows. And New Yorkers fed up with getting the hand from power-tripping PAs have some data-driven ammo when they complain there are too many film shoots in their neighborhood.

Watch: Broad City Fans Paint the Town With Jaime and Bingo Bronson

Arturo Castro alert: on Saturday the Broad City star paid a surprise visit to Comedy Central’s public painting party. Castro, who plays Jaime on the show, braved the cold along with Abby’s post-dentist shopping buddy Bingo Bronson to help hundreds of fans paint-by-number a #BC3 wallscape at North 11th Street and Wythe Avenue. Watch our video for a partial time lapse of the painting process and for Castro’s take on what fans can expect from season three, which premieres on Wednesday, February 17 at 10 p.m. The mural will remain up until February 28.

It’s been a very Abbi Jacobson couple of days: Saturday at Irving Plaza we saw her sit in with Paul Scheer and Jason Mantzoukas during a taping of their “How Did This Get Made” podcast (spoiler alert: they shredded Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Hercules in the City), and this morning she and her Broad City co-creator Ilana Glazer kicked off Internet Week with a conversation with Marie Claire editor Anne Fulenwider.

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.

Oops, We Photo-bombed Broad City’s Season Two Trailer

Screen-Shot-2014-11-10-at-9.57.01-PM

Today Comedy Central dropped the trailer for season two of Broad City. As if that alone wasn’t more exciting than titty chips, it looks like, uh, I’m in it? Because, yeah, that’s me on the stairs of 33 St. Marks Place at the 1:06 mark, snapping photos for this post. Hopefully this qualifies me for royalties, because the trailer (below) already has over 87,000 views and I know I’m not the only one who’s officially counting. the. days. till January 14.

Broad City Is Shooting in the East Village This Week [Updated]

Natasha Lyonne, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson back in April.

Broad City filmed on the Lower East Side last week and now it’s the East Village’s turn: film shoot signs indicate that “BCB Productions” (or, as we like to call it, Broad City — outed!) is taking over St. Marks Place and also East Ninth Street, between Second and Third Avenues. Strangely, the shoot times are listed as 4 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday so we may or may not be awake to see Abbi and Ilana camping in the middle of St. Marks, Lena Dunham-style.

Update: An employee of Kenka says the St. Marks izakaya will be closed tonight because the show is shooting “inside of the building,” so expect Kenka’s giant tanuki to make an appearance in the upcoming season.

Last night Kevin Corrigan interviewed three stars who’ve each completed a very successful first season on TV (or Netflix). Seems he’s hoping their good fortune will bode well for The Talk Show Series–last night’s event at Over the Eight in Williamsburg was recorded as a prospective pilot.
