Ilana Glazer Talks Comedy Special, Horny 4 Tha Polls Stand-Up Tour on ‘Daily Show’

‘The planet is burning, and we’re not talking about it all the time. It’s pathetically funny,’ ‘Broad City’ star says of her comedy special

'Broad City' star Ilana Glazer returned to Comedy Central to talk about her stand-up tour and comedy special on 'The Daily Show.'

Former Broad City star Ilana Glazer returned to Comedy Central Tuesday to talk about her politically charged stand-up tour and comedy special on The Daily Show.

The comedian first discussed the fairly dire title of her new Amazon Prime stand-up special, The Planet Is Burning. “It is my lens in which I think things are funny. It’s like, the planet is burning, and we’re not talking about it all the time. It’s pathetically funny,” Glazer said. “Also I thought, if I was gonna have billboards and repeat a phrase over and over again, this was probably a worthwhile one.”

After analyzing how her stand-up persona differs from that of her Broad City character, Glazer and Trevor Noah talked about her upcoming stand-up tour, dubbed the Horny 4 Tha Polls tour.

“I am so horny for the polls,” Glazer admitted before talking about her political activism. “I consider myself more an advocate. I have a political organization, Generator, and I’m going on tour in March. Every city that I do stand-up in, we’re doing a voter-empowerment dance party with Generator.… It is so dorky. My co-founder and I, we’re nerds. We’re horny for voting.”
