Broad City has come a long way since 2009 when it started as a webisode. Now, the series is getting ready for its third season on Comedy Central, and its creators and stars, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, have a New Yorker profile, a comprehensive catalogue of fan art, and even their own "Broad City" walking tour.
In reflecting about what got them here, they both cite their years in training at New York's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, and their early years in New York.
