‘Broad City’ Starts Season 2 With a Burst of Delightfully Familiar Flatulence

Broad City‘s second season begins by plunging viewers into the guts of its funhouse-mirrored New York City: the subway. As Ilana (Glazer) and Abbi (Jacobson) try to make their way toward the nearest door to their stop’s exit, each car reveals an exaggeratedly hellish version of an experience with which any New York commuter can empathize. The scene is also relevant to non-New Yorkers, as each car seems to introduce the themes of the upcoming season. Thankfully, they don’t diverge — at all — from those of the first. Said themes are: stuff that comes from butts, stuff that comes from whatever other places on the body might produce comedic “stuff,” stuff that comes from New York’s own grotesque body, and stuff that happens when your life doesn’t seem to have a schedule, when you give few enough shits to make a life out of simply doing random “stuff” with your BFF. … Read More

Everything is coming up Hannibal Buress. After some writing stints on both 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, Buress has been keeping busy with a memorable role on Broad City and lending his distinct voice to shows like Bob’s Burgers and Chozen. With a weekly show at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, a role alongside Zac Efron and Seth Rogen in the upcoming movie Neighbors, and a Comedy Central pilot that may or may not have gotten picked up, 2014 is primed to be Buress’ best year yet.

Broad City Season 1 Episode 8 Recap: “Destination: Wedding”

Last week’s bottle episode wasn’t disappointing in the least but its claustrophobic nature made me crave the outdoor adventures that Broad City excels at. Much to my excitement, “Destination: Wedding” goes the opposite route of “Hurricane Wanda” and has the cast rushing around the city. It’s a frenetic episode that refuses to slow down. It’s also a frustrated love letter that showcases the all too familiar complicated relationship with New York City. You can go from loving the city to hating it just by walking down a single crowded block; then you can turn a corner and fall for it all over again. “Destination: Wedding” is a quick favorite and it’s amazing. … Read More

25 Comedians of Color Everyone Should Know

Last week, we put together our list of female comedians everyone should have on their radar, prompted in part by Jerry Seinfeld’s implication that the reason he hasn’t had many women or people of color on his web series is because there just aren’t many funny women or non-white people out there. Between Seinfeld’s remarks and the recent dialogue about diversity on late-night shows and SNL, the time seemed right to round up 25 hilarious people who happen not to be white. Click through for our list, from Aziz Ansari to Reggie… Read More
