Abbi and Ilana are about to spend some time with RuPaul tomorrow night on Broad City.
In the episode, Ilana (Ilana Glazer) applies to work at a hip Williamsburg restaurant where Ru is the bitchy no-drama manager. While he initially refuses to hire her, he’s soon won over by her unique attitude.
It turns out Glazer is equally enamored of Mama Ru: “He’s just so delicious,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “He’s like godlike, I’m not even kidding. Even him doing, like, normal shit in the show is just titillating. Fully fucking titillating.” (The Broad City writers also revealed that Drag Race is the TV show most quoted in the writing room.)
Does Ilana succeed as a waitress under Ru’s watchful eye? You can probably guess the answer—but, below, watch the two comedy queens meet for the first time. Hopefully it’s not the last we see of the glamazon on Broad City.
Last year his podcast, What’s the Tee, RuPaul talked about staying in Williamsburg while filming—but he didn’t mention the name of the series. Fans guessed correctly, though, as Ru is known to be a Broad City fan.
Even though Ru shares his scenes with Glazer, he also visited Jacobson on her podcast, A Piece of Work.
Broad City airs Wednesdays at 10:30/9:30c on Comedy Central.
