Today I stumbled on to this amazing Sugar Boy video and I just keep re-watching Ilana rollerskating, karate chopping and high-fiving her way through my beloved borough in attempts to retrieve her favorite baseball card. If you make it through the entire video without the slightest bit of a Girl Crush yourself, I’d keep it to yourself. Ilana has some mad nipple-ripping skills.
“Broad City,” the cult hit web series, comes to you compliments of the collective brains of Abbi Jacobson + Ilana Glazer (both UCB alum). Called “sneak attack feminism” by the Wall Street Journal, the series follows two friends navigating their way though the mundane situations that we all call life… each moment, however, is distinctly Abbi and Ilana. The two manage to make their unique and twisted perspective wildly relatable: It’s both universal and specific and unmistakably “Broad City.” Their ability to make us cringe/laugh at our own awkwardness is the reason the girls can call people like Amy Poehler, Kristen Schaal, and Hannibal Buress fans and guest stars.
