Stephen Colbert called Hillary Clinton’s nomination for president a “watershed” moment in women’s rights, and to celebrate the event, the Broad City duo helped put the moment in perspective.
Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer were promoting their popular series on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week, and they took a moment to to introduce the world to their new alter-egos Abatha and Josephine.
While the two alter-egos were excited to learn that a woman had finally become a presidential nominee, they were a little saddened to find out that it took over 200 years for the moment to happen. Hopefully we will return to Stephen Colbert’s mystery time portal later on this year, just to check-in with our favorite Broad City ladies from time to time.
You can checkout the full skit above. Renewed by Comedy Central for another two seasons, “Broad City” is courtesy of the collective brains of and starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. It is an odd couple comedy about two best friends navigating their twenties in New York City whose adventures always lead down unexpected and outlandish paths. They’re broke, flawed and don’t shy away from the sticky situations NYC throws at them — they dive right into the muck. But no matter how bad it gets, these young broads are always down with whatever hits them.
