'Broad City' stars detail Hillary Clinton's cameo
Broad City season 3 was already a highly anticipated return for one of the hottest shows on television. Then, former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton revealed she would be making an appearance on the show.
That episode still hasn’t aired yet, but during their Wednesday night appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Jacobson and Glazer discussed the high-profile cameo. Specifically, they told Meyers how instrumental producer Amy Poehler was in running the whole thing smoothly.
“Your dear friend Amy was a little helpful,” Glazer said. “Amy was incredible. She whisked the experience along, and we were like, ‘Mm-hmm, absolutely.’ We were so nervous.”
Fortunately, the scene required Glazer and Jacobson to use their nervousness.

“We were very lucky becasue the scene is Abbi and Ilana freaking out meeting Hillary Clinton, so we just got to freak out,” Jacobson said. “We freaked out super hard to her face.”
The three also noted that Clinton stopped by Meyers’ show the same night she shot the Broad City cameo, and wore the same outfit to both.
“We saw the coat and we were like, ‘Same coat! Same coat!'” Glazer said. “It’s so gross that that means so much, but for women to wear the same thing and be a badass about it, it’s really meaningful, unfortunately.”
