Comedy Central's newest sitcom Broad City is only two episodes into the current season, but it has already gained an impressive audience, heaps of critical praise and some wel-deserved buzz. The network is so impressed with the show's opening that its stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson are getting their own national tour, and Dallas is on the docket.
Comedy Central announced the schedule for Glazer and Jacobson's "Broad City Live" tour. One of their stops will include The Kessler Theatre on Saturday, March 22.
If you haven't been watching, you should start. The Upright Citizens Brigade regulars started the show as a web series before UCB founder and Parks & Recreation star Amy Poehler helped package and pitch it to the cable network for a TV series treatment, making her the show's executive producer. So far, the two bestest friends ever have had adventures in NYC that include cleaning a man-baby's apartment in their underwear to raise money for Lil' Wayne tickets and learning the joys of hiding marijuana in one's, um, womanly pocket. Just imagine what they'll be able to do on a stage without a network censor.
