TV comedies love callbacks, running jokes, and hidden Easter eggs. In this video, we explain the difference between those three devices — and how Comedy Central's Broad City uses them all to make its fictional world weirder and more wonderful with every episode.
Broad City is a hilarious, profane delight. Since its Comedy Central premiere in 2014, the series has breathed life and a take-no-shit attitude into the New York City hangout comedy, an old standby that was flailing before stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson got a hold of it.
But make no mistake: The show's chaos can be deceiving. If you peel back the layers of the duo's ridiculous adventures and mishaps, you'll find that they're quite meticulously put together.
