LISTEN: Ilana Glazer Exposes ‘Psycho’ Who Posed as ‘Broad City’ Writer

Ilana Glazer called out a man who pretended to be a writer on hit comedy show “Broad City” in order to convince a date to sleep with him.

The man claimed to work on the Comedy Central sitcom and showed a photo he had taken with show creators Glazer and Abbi Jacobson at a 2014 event in order to woo a woman he had met, according to the Jewish actress.

What he didn’t know was that his romantic interests was actually friends with one of the writers on the show, who informed Glazer of his ploy.

“He’s using this info, literally — what a psycho,” she told an audience Wednesday at a New York bar, according to Oh No They Didn’t.

Glazer warned women against falling for a man because he claimed to work on the show.

“Beware ladies — don’t f—k a dude ‘cause you think he works on ‘Broad City,’” she said as the audience burst into laughter.

The sitcom follows two 20-something women, played by Glazer and Jacobson, as they deal with the hilarity of everyday situations, including tedious jobs, strange dates and friendship drama.
