Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer sit down to chat all things Broad City
Over the course of 10 entertainment-packed days, the JFL42 Comedy Festival takes over Toronto and gives audiences the chance to see a star-studded roster of heavyweight headliners as well as 42 up-and-coming comedy acts from across the nation (hence the '42' in its moniker). Back for its sixth year running, the rib-tickling festivities have grown by 15 percent since 2015, with a grand total of over 73,000 attendees flocking to the city's top venues for a whirlwind of wry observations, side-splitting sketches and hilarious stand-up routines.
Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson are the pair behind the entertaining hit sitcom Broad City on Comedy Central. Beginning life as an independent web series, the show has seen the duo go on to become true comedy royalty with nominations for best comedy at the Critic's Choice Awards two years running, as well as a nomination for Best Comedic Performance at the 2017 MTV Movie Awards. At JFL42 they sit down for an exclusive chat on the series' transition from online passion-project to worldwide television success.
