NEW YORK, September 17, 2014 - It's not a Jedi mind trick. Abbi and Ilana will be heading to Manhattan's way west side to attend and participate for the first time at New York Comic Con. "Comedy Central's 'Broad City' @ New York Comic Con" panel will feature creators and executive producers Abbi Jacobson (@abbijacobson) and Ilana Glazer (@ilazer) as they give fans a behind-the-scenes look of their hit series "Broad City," screen and provide comedic commentary of a past episode, reveal never-before-seen clips from the upcoming second season, Q&A, and more. In addition, there will be a giveaway of Broad F**king City t-shirts at the panel.

"Comedy Central's 'Broad City' @ New York Comic Con" panel will be moderated by Nicole Drespel (Ilana's co-worker Nicole on "Broad City") and will take place from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in room 1A14 on Friday, October 10 at the Javits Center located at 655 W34 St. in Manhattan.

Comedy Central's "Broad City" premiered on January 22, 2014 and is an odd couple comedy about two best friends navigating their twenties in New York City whose adventures always lead down unexpected and outlandish paths. They're broke, flawed and don't shy away from the sticky situations NYC throws at them - they dive right into the muck. But no matter how bad it gets, these young broads are always down with whatever hits them.

The series is created by Jacobson and Glazer, who also serve as executive producers along with Amy Poehler, 3 Arts' Dave Becky, Sam Saifer and Tony Hernandez with Eric Slovin as the co-executive producer. Brooke Posch is the Executive in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.

Ilana Glazer is an ECNY (Emerging Comic New York) nominated comedian, writer, and performer based in New York City. Along with Abbi Jacobson she was a creator, co-writer, and star of the original web series "Broad City" and the two of them currently perform "Broad City Live," a monthly show at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater NY. Glazer has been a writer for projects including AOL's My Daily and Lemondrop, an actress in various indie projects, and is regularly featured in video content for popular blogs such as ESPN, Asylum, VH1, and MTV. Her ECNY nominated live show "High School Talent Show" (which she co- created with her brother Eliot Glazer) ran at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater NY for over three years and had amazing guest stars including Zach Galifianakis. Glazer is a graduate of New York University, has trained at Upright Citizens Brigade NY and is originally from Long Island. Abbi Jacobson is originally from outside of Philadelphia. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a degree in Fine Arts and a minor in Video. After graduating, Jacobson moved to New York City and began training at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, The Atlantic Acting Conservatory and The Magnet Theater. Her solo show, "Welcome to Camp" ran at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater NY and LA in 2011. Jacobson is an AolArtist and has two coloring books out with Chronicle Books, "Color This Book: New York City" and "Color This Book: San Francisco."

The first season of "Broad City" was nominated for Best Comedy Series at the 2014 Critics' Choice Television Awards and Glazer received an individual nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Jacobson and Glazer were both on the 2014 Variety's Power of Women: New York Impact List.
