One of the best comedy series on TV right now is undoubtedly Broad City. What first felt like the female answer to Workaholics has become the shining beacon in Comedy Central’s current line-up of shows as Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have taken New York City by storm across three seasons. Now the fourth season is coming later this year, and the first trailer gives us a taste of what’s in store, including plenty of risque shenanigans, some fantastic new guest stars, and at least one episode where they leave New York City for a warmer climate.

In just a few days, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will reunite Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher on the big screen for the first time since 1983’s Return of the Jedi.

But seeing Fey and Poehler together should still be fun, if somewhat less thrilling than space battles and lightsaber duels. And to help drive that point home, they’ve recruited Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer for a weird and funny new promo. It’s not quite a Sisters trailer, and it’s not quite a Broad City ad, but it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of these four hilarious women. Read More »
