Broad City (Comedy Central)

Two best friends bop around New York City with vague dreams and an insatiable penchant for unadulterated fun and adventure. Broad City pulses with a vital energy that embodies the best that NYC has to offer.

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson are besties in real life, and they also star in and write the show. Their inclusive and upbeat attitudes are echoed by their characters and storylines generally revolve around exuding confidence and being comfortable with who you are and what you stand for. We’re all just individuals doing the best we can, and Broad City encourages us to be supportive of others while letting our freak flags fly with pride.

Where to Watch: Seasons 1 – 4 are currently available on ComedyCentral.com (with a cable subscription).

Bonus Squeeze: Snag a copy of The Broad City Coloring Book, full of zany, colorable art by Broad City title sequence artist Mike Perry, or Color This Book: New York City featuring pages of Abbi Jacobson’s art. Lose yourself in the intricate squiggles and focus on creating your very own masterpieces while letting your troubles melt away.
