In an Australian exclusive, Arts Centre Melbourne and Penny Drop present Ilana Glazer, appearing at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall for a night of stand-up on 9 June 2018.
The New York-based comedian is best-known as a co-creator and co-star of the hit New York-based series, Broad City, which she produced with her creative partner Abbi Jacobson. As the headline performer at MEL&NYC, a new program of multi-disciplinary events celebrating the influence of New York City on our arts and culture, Glazer will return to the stage for an hour of stand-up.
Alumnae of the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) theatre in Manhattan, Glazer and Jacobson first created Broad City as a web series in the early 2000’s. With the help of UCB co-founder Amy Poehler, the web series was adapted for television in 2014 and its first season was one of the highest rating programs for broadcaster Comedy Central.
Glazer and Jacobson recently announced that the forthcoming fifth season of Broad City will be the last. In its time on air, the series has been nominated for Best Comedy Series by the Writers Guild of America and for a Critics Choice Award for Best Comedy Series in 2014, the same year in which Glazer also earned a nomination for Best Actress in a comedy series.
