Ahh, New York City! Skyscrapers, 24-hour bagel cafes, pizza rats! Is there anything we don’t have?
Oh — a working subway system, you say? Yes, one of those would be nice.
But if we had a working subway system, Abbi and Ilana of “Broad City” would never have become lifelong friends whose wacky antics bring us the kind of life we haven’t seen in a New York City comedy since “Seinfeld.”
Next season of “Broad City” will dedicate an entire episode to Abbi and Ilana’s origin story. A teaser of their reconnaissance premiered this past weekend at Comic-Con and subsequently posted to the ‘Broad City’ Instagram account.
You can witness how it all started below.
