Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson may be the reigning queens of comedy on TV in 2016, but they certainly aren’t afraid of referencing some classic films on their show.
In fact, on this week’s episode of Broad City, the girls remade the entire choking scene from Mrs. Doubtfire — all the way down to the same lines!
Oh yeah, and they got retired actress Mara Wilson to make a cameo for it, too!!!
Mara spoke to Brokely about her decision to be part of the Comedy Central hit on Wednesday, saying:
“I procrastinated watching Broad City, and when I finally did about a year ago, I was like, ‘Holy sh*t, this show is amazing…’ I followed Abbi on Twitter, and she sent me a message saying, ‘That’s really weird that you followed me today, because we are working on an episode right now that’s an homage to Mrs. Doubtfire.’ I felt emboldened a few days later, I think it was after a glass of wine, and I said, ‘You know, if you want me to make a cameo or something on this, I totally would. I don’t act much, I don’t really like film or TV acting, but this would be really fun and I have a lot of respect for you two.'”
The wonders of the Internet.
This is just another reason why you NEED to be watching this show!
