Comedy Central’s very funny new Brooklyn-based series, “Broad City,” is taking the show on the road.
The series stars Upright Citizens Brigade talent Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as a couple of under-achieving 20-somethings getting embroiled in some hilarious situations in their hometown of New York City. Rooted in a web series and co-executive produced by Amy Poehler, the often bawdy freshman comedy has an enviable rotation of guest stars, such as Fred Armisen and Chicago stand-up comic Hannibal Buress.
The “Broad City” live tour kicks off in Cambridge, Mass., on March 4. Chicago is one of the stops on the 18-city roster. Two shows are scheduled here at Lincoln Hall, 2424 N. Lincoln, on March 13.
Here’s my take on “Broad City,” airing at 9:30 p.m. Wednesdays on Comedy Central:
