    Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson

    Jew Score:



    1987 —, 1984 —

    We've got a bunch of requests to profile Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, the two women who make up Broad City. Apparently, they are both Jewish, and, apparently, the show is hilarious. Everyone on the Internet seems to agree.

    So, being the dutiful profilers we are, we decided to give the show a look before writing the women up. If it's as Jewish and as hilarious as our readers tell us, it should be up our alley!

    We watched a random episode. We didn't laugh once. Sure, it was clever, but we just didn't find it funny. So we watched another one. And another. And another. We must have chuckled a couple of times, but that's as far as it goes.

    Sorry, dear readers. We gave it a chance, but even though Broad City might be hilarious to you (and, apparently, to everyone on the Internet), it's not to us.

    But, yes, both Ilana and Abbi are definitely Jewish. They reference it in every other episode. So here's your profile...

    Verdict: Jew.
