‘broad city’ honors yom kippur with bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches
atonement + low blood sugar = the funnies
The holiest day in the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur, is the moment when we of the faith atone for our transgressions of the past year and focus our thoughts on the new one by fasting until sundown. It can make you kinda spacey and crabby.
This is exactly what is happening to Broad City stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as they attempt to make it through the Day of Atonement in the first of their ongoing web series Hack Into Broad City. As you’ll see, the two celebrate the high holy day in the traditional way: Complaining and thinking about food. As you’ll also see, their Yom Kippur ends in the way so many do. Sorry, God.
