Did you know that Broad City wunder-komikerin Abbi Jacobson has a BFA in General Fine Arts? She used to bring the greeting cards she created (by hand) and sneak them into the collection at the MOMA gift shop, hoping that a customer might choose her design and bring it to the cash register, thus setting off a chain of events that would lead to her eventual art world celebrity. Instead, she ended up creating and starring in a hit television show that has helped define our current era. She’s a loser!
Her love for visual art never went anywhere and she made this completely adorable podcast where she introduces her comedian friends to exhibits, artists, and schools of thought and allows them to be themselves and react authentically…to ask questions, have their unique points of view, to even not like things! She is your best friend tourguide, showing you the things she is so excited about in her life and the enthusiasm is contagious.
The podcast only lasted 10 episodes, but it’s worth getting to be friends with she and her friends including Hannibal Buress, Tavi Gevinson, RuPaul, and Questlove.
