Yaaassss Qween Yaaaas! Get used to the phrase now, because Ilana Glazer of “Broad City” and Phoebe Robinson of “2 Dope Queens” are bringing their hilariously liberating style of humor to New York City’s Music Hall of Williamsburg this spring. The two popular comedians will set up shop at the Brooklyn venue for three shows over two nights in front of their home fans on April 29-30.
The newly announced residency follows Glazer and Robinson’s “YQY” comedy tour back in November, which featured the two jokesters performing in venues around North America, sans New York City. So it appears that they’re planning to make up for lost laughter with the upcoming trio of shows, which follow three performances just down the road at Brooklyn’s Union Hall a few nights prior. Fans hoping to catch one of the shows on April 29 should note that the two separate performances will start at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Tickets for the three Music Hall of Williamsburg performances will be going on sale starting this Friday, March 16 at 12 p.m. EST, and can be purchased by clicking here.
Fans will certainly know both Glazer and Robinson thanks to each of their hilarious roles as stand-up performers, and television actors. Glazer’s “Broad City” initially ran as a web series before airing on Comedy Central starting in early 2014. The show has since gone on to reach a national audience thanks to its funny, but also somewhat realistic portrayal of being a 20-something in modern day New York City. Robinson’s “2 Dope Queens” podcast alongside former “Daily Show” actress Jessica Williams has also earned national recognition thanks to its live tapings in Brooklyn and wild spin on important social topics. The show also arrived to television at the start of this year with a special on HBO.
Both Robinson and Glazer have also recently launched a spinoff podcast titled “Sooo Many White Guys,” which can be partially watched in the clip above.
