‘Broad City’ stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are on the cover of ‘Nylon’ magazine’s August issue, ahead of the release of the show’s fourth season.
About the show’s direction, Jacobson says: “The basis of Broad City is taking a mundane event and making it ridiculous. Not to compare buying an air conditioner to Trump being president or anything. But it’s about taking shittiness and putting a spin on it. The stakes are so high in general in the world right now that I think it even heightens the potential of how funny taking on this serious stuff can be.”
And Amy Poehler submitted some words for the story, saying about the comedic duo: “I wish I could take parental credit for guiding them, but they’re just such hard-working, competent, funny, talented people—it’s always felt like a real, true collaboration. Tone is so important in comedy, and Broad City got their tone right from the start because it came from Abbi and Ilana’s brain and heart. I think they’ve always had that thing that they have.”
