Whoopi Goldberg jumped back into the habit — literally — on an episode of ‘Broad City’ that featured an EPIC tribute to one of the most iconic films of the 90s, ‘Sister Act 2.’ Whoopi’s cameo was absolutely glorious and you better believe it brought back all the nostalgia! Check out the clip here.
Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit is known as one the most classic films that emerged out of the early 90s…and boy did it just make a legendary comeback 2016-style on Comedy Central’s Broad City. The March 2 episode not only brought back all the singing and dancing — and crazy 90s gear — that we remember, but Whoopi Goldberg, 60, herself showed up out of NOWHERE donning full-on nun gear. This is just too amazing, guys!
Lip-syncing “Joyful, Joyful,” the characters of Broad City can’t help but rejoice after a universally-despised employee of theirs, Ilana — who also happens to be the main character of the series — gets fired by Vanessa Williams. Pretty hilarious, right? It gets better. Whoopi makes the performance even MORE unforgettable by showing up looking as if she just stepped right off the screen of Sister Act — nun costume and all — to join in on the fun!

Ilana’s colleagues sport their flyest 90s gear while reenacting the climactic concert from 1993 film, but the best part of the scene was definitely when Whoopi reprised her Sister Act role as Deloris, the lounge singer. SO epic.
But let’s rewind for a second: this all starts with Ilana’s tortured desk mate, Nicole, who is SO thrilled by Ilana’s departure that she daydreams the office-wide celebration Sister–Act–2 style. We can definitely get on board with that! And we just love that Whoopi participated in the action, making this reenactment not only hilarious but also quite special.
It’s certainly been a busy week for the actress! From making a splash at the Oscars, getting confused for Oprah, and killing it on The View, it seems like Whoopi has been everywhere lately. And honestly, we don’t hate it! After all, she IS one of the most iconic comedians of our time. We just know that Whoopi’s appearance on Broad City will be a lifelong gift to the creators and fans of the show. What a moment!
