Watch ‘Broad City’ Cast Talk Weed, Pubic Hair Censorship on ‘Kimmel’
Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, the stars of Comedy Central’s Broad City, dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday to discuss the issues they hold dear: marijuana and pubes.
“Medical marijuana is legal in New York, but weird thing is you have to have an actual medical reason to get it there,” Kimmel told the comedians, asking how they acquire their weed. Jacobson admitted she gets hers from Glazer, whose contact is “a full businessman, like a restaurateur … This guy is so successful, and he’s got garbage bags of weed.”
The duo also chatted about standing up to network Standards and Practices over a scene in which Glazer looks at her vagina in a mirror. “The pixels, they wanted them to be Ilana’s skin tone,” Jacobson said, prompting some outrage from her co-star: “I got a baby vagina? I’m an adult. I have pubes!” (“In a way, you’re not just doing a show – you’re fighting for civil rights, and I applaud that,” Kimmel joked.)
The wide-ranging interview also found the duo discussing a creative battle with Whole Foods, Kelly Ripa’s shocking Broad City guest spot and the differences between their characters and their real selves. Before the interview, they earned laughs by blasting a hole into the dressing room of fellow guest Chris Hemsworth. “We’re drilling a peep hole so we can peep his penis,” Glazer cracked.
