We Made the Broad City Girls Give Each Other Drag Names & They Did Not Disappoint

24 July 2017 12:06 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Seth Rogen. Blake Griffin. Kelly Ripa. Hillary Clinton. Over the past three seasons, Broad City has welcomed a truly impressive roster of guest stars into Abbi and Ilana's hilarious orbit, and the trailer for the highly-anticipated fourth season proves that they're not resting on their laurels just yet. The teaser promises visits from SNL legend Jane Curtin, Steve Buscemi, Wanda Sykes and Shania Twain, but perhaps the most exciting of all is the glimpse of Emmy-winning pop culture icon RuPaul. Ru's influence has been felt on the show since its debut—after all, how do you describe Ilana Wexler if not as "drag queen minus the drag"?—with RuPaul's Drag Race season four contestant Jiggly »

‘Broad City’ Previews Empowering Season 4 Episode at Comic-Con to Heal the Damage of Donald Trump

23 July 2017 2:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Without an introduction, without even a word from creators Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, the “Broad City” Comic-Con panel began by screening an entire episode. The hilarious and inspired sixth episode of Season 4 was filled with admirable moments, delighting the attendees who packed the expansive Indigo Ballroom in San Diego, but one aspect stood out:

Every time the name “Donald Trump” came up, it was bleeped (just like the many swear words uttered by Abbi and Ilana during their New York City adventures). But no one brought it up after the episode ended. Neither Jacobson or Glazer said anything during their 10 minutes spent previewing Season 4, and no fan asked about it during the ensuing Q&A.
