Because it's truly the best female buddy comedy on TV!
If you don't know them already, get ready to meet your future girl crushes. Abbi and Ilana are the greatest female comedy duo since Amy and Tina. We mean it! The two friends are back on Comedy Central tonight (!) with the premiere of the second season of their hit show Broad City.
Originally launched as a web series in 2009, Amy Poehler used her magic to bring this special show to TVs everywhere in 2014. All praise, Amy!
The show follows Abbi and Ilana as exaggerated versions of themselves—they're best friends in their 20s trying to make in through each day in New York City. The twist? These two are hilarious, charming, and find themselves in some pretty unique situations. Sure, they're broke. They don’t love their jobs. But their friendship is beautiful and something we should all be lucky to have.
Watch the season two premiere tonight on Comedy Central, or else we'll send Bevers to poop in your shoe.
1. The show is straight-up hilarious.
These gals get into the weirdest situations and we’ve never laughed so hard. Hiding weed in your vay-jay-jay? A total riot. Literally scouring over almost all of Manhattan to find the biz-natch that stole your phone? So wacky. Trying to save your friend with her EpiPen and accidentally stabbing yourself in the leg? Priceless. And worth a trip to the hospital.
2. The list of guest stars has not disappointed.
Amy Poehler. Amy Sedaris. Rachel Dratch. Janeane Garofalo. It's a comedy fantasy to have all these hilarious women showcase their skills in one show. Oh, and a few funny dudes have been/will be on it too, including Fred Armisen and Seth Rogen (in season two!).
3. One word: BEVERS.
Abbi's roommate's boyfriend is the worst, but we admit we love to watch him commit the most heinous acts against the roommate courtesy code. Personal massages (you know what we mean) in a shared space?! UGH. Throwing away the holy Bed, Bath And Beyond 20-percent off coupons?! How DARE he! And well, pooping in a place no one should ever poop. Vomit. How Abbi hasn't yet murdered him, we shall never know. But we'll be laughing until she does!
4. The special friendship between Abbi and Ilana.
Unlike another show about 20-somethings in NYC, Broad City depicts a mad supportive female friendship where the two pals will truly do anything for each other, including enjoy a pricey meal of food to which you're severely allergic just for a fun night celebrating your bestie's birthday. Or always sharing your weed because your friend just can't handle having her own. Or letting your friend be the Jay-Z to your Beyoncé because you know she wants to be the dude.
5. This show makes us confront our biggest fears in NYC.
Like being so desperate for money that you go to Craigslist to take a gig cleaning the apartment in your underwear of a man who talks like a baby. Or that your job is cleaning up pubes at a gym. Or hooking up with two buddy DJs that are also trying to plot a four-way. These nightmares while frightening IRL are amazing comedy goldmines on Broad City.
6. Hannibal Buress as the coolest DDS ever.
He actually makes us WANT to go to the dentist!
7. These two.
We just wanna be friends. Hit us up, K? We'll totes hit the dog park without dogs or play bucket drums with you.
8. The friends that get pepper sprayed together...
...will stay together! Nothing says your bond will last forever like two sets of burning eyeballs.
9. Abbi as Missy Elliot in a Trash Bag.
Do you really need any more reason than that? Watch the season two premiere tonight!
