It finally happened! Hillary Clinton was on ‘Broad City’. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have been teasing the episode since Dec., but on Mar. 16 we finally got to see the leading Democratic candidate on our favorite show, and it was awesome! Here’s the scoop.
Okay, that was AMAZING! Hillary Clinton, 68, appeared on Broad City, one of the funniest shows on TV on Mar. 16, and it was even better than we imagined. Her cameo left us almost as stunned as Abbi Jacobson, 32, and Ilana Glazer, 28, were when they saw her! We have all the hilarious details, right here.
We’re still reeling from Hillary’s explosive performance on Amy Poehler-produced Broad City on Mar. 16. The leading Democratic candidate was flying high after sweeping the Mar. 15 primaries, and it only got better from there. In the show, Ilana stumbles upon Hil’s campaign center while making a delivery in her new bike messenger job.
Abbi stops by to look around after Ilana spent the day making cold calls (naturally she thinks it’s a paid job when she was actually a volunteer). They’re freaking out over breathing the same air as Hillary when the presidential candidate shows up in the flesh! That’s when they completely LOSE IT!
After Abbi and Ilana stop hyperventilating, Ilana vows to tweet weekly to support Hillary, which she graciously thanks her for. Plus, she has some ideas of her own. “We need to drum up some excitement for the campaign, do everything we can,” explain Hillary while she wheels out a wacky waving inflatable tube man. When Hillary says it’s a girl, they even joke about assuming it’s a man! #feminism, amirite?
Ilana says she wrote the episode way back in 2015, hoping that Hillary would be willing to work on it with them. Finally, she agreed and shot the episode in Dec. We’ve been dying to see it ever since, and it was definitely worth the wait.
No doubt Hillary is hoping that the super popular Comedy Central show will help build her report with the ever-important youth vote. While we think it made her seem super cool and relatable, it may raise critique from others. The show, often praised for it’s feminist angle, also depicts heavy drinking, casual drug use and has a brash tone. Only time will tell how voters respond.
