Abbi and Ilana have seen their fair share of New York City magic on Broad City — but never like this.

In an exclusive clip from this week’s episode, the pair (played by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer) take Ilana’s elderly distant cousin Saul (Jerry Adler) to a drag brunch featuring guest star Alan Cumming, who plays himself and introduces the brunch-goers to the fabulous, mimosa-fueled affair.

But Cumming isn’t just standing on stage to welcome visitors; he’d never do anything as boring as that. Instead, he’s singing a version of “Be Our Guest,” from Beauty and the Beast, and dazzling his audience with drag queens like Shangela, Sasha Velour, and Jiggly Caliente (also playing themselves). “Come on and bring your nephew, apply your blush, and then you’ll pass the test,” Cumming croons. “Touch my chest, you’re our guest.”

Getting Cumming to be the show’s version of Lumière for an episode crossed a major item off the final-season bucket list, Glazer tells EW. “This sequence is a dream come true for Broad City,” she says. “To reimagine a Disney classic as this super-queer was, dare we say, better than the original? Alan Cumming is a New York legend, and to feature Shangela, Sasha Velour, and so many beautiful and talented New York drag queens elevated the Broad City world.”

Watch the clip above. Broad City airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
