This incredible funny show returned to Comedy Central Wednesday night, and boy had we missed the laughs.
From its roots as a YouTube sketch show, Broad City has morphed into a something akin to a more authentic, absurd, and funnier version of ‘Girls’. It’s the realness of Broad City that makes it such a joy to watch.
For all of the alienating privilege that Girls exposed viewers to, Broad City is for the rest of us who haven’t lived the Girls life. Ilana and Abbi are two refreshingly normal girls looking to break even and pay off the rent in a familiar way that embodies exactly what comedy is about; comedy is funny because it’s relatable.
