Now that’s how you lip sync. Abbi and Ilana from Comedy Central’s Broad City can do no wrong in my eyes, and it’s partially due to stuff like this. Abbi absolutely dominates the lip sync game in this video. 100% effort throughout the entire performance. She might have even been Jennifer Hudson in another life. I’m not ruling that out. The only thing that could’ve made this performance better would have been an appearance from ‘Val’.
WOOF – Ahead of tonight’s Season 2 premiere of Broad City, Comedy Central said today that it wants more. The cable net has ordered a third season of the odd-couple comedy created by and starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, based on their digital series. They play flawed and broke twentysomethings in New York who navigate their way through life’s minutiae and constantly meet the challenges the Big City throws at them, no matter how bad it gets. Hannibal Buress, Arturo Castro, Paul Downs, John Gemberling, Chris Gethard and Stephen Schneider co-star. “It has just been brought to my attention that Broad City is a female-centric show, but we’re going to do more anyway,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s President of Content Development and Original Programming.
Comedy Central coming in HOTT on hump day to announce some wonderful news. If you don’t watch Broad City, you should, and I’ve already written at length about my love for the two main characters, Abbi and Ilana. Whenever a show gets picked up for a third season before the second season even premieres, it’s a good sign that the network has a lot of faith in the show. The show is edgy, insane, and makes you want the kind of friendship Abbi and Ilana have more than any other friendship you’ve ever experienced. Do yourself a favor and check out the second season premiere tonight, unless you don’t like happiness. If you don’t like happiness you probably won’t enjoy this show.
