Sail Away With The Glazer Siblings (and Enya!)

Gah! I don’t know why I get sucked into those Shit Blah-People Say videos but I do.  I saw the Shit New Yorkers Say one:

 

And the girl looked very familiar.  It turns out it’s Ilana Glazer! From the webseries Broad City! Broad City is coming FX sometime soon.

From Black Book Mag:

Jacobson and Glazer are slated to write and star in the half-hour comedy, which will center around a pair of twentysomething best friends making their way in New York City. The two are alumnae of the venerable Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York, co-founded by Poehler. Poehler (among other famous comedic faces) popped up in the web show’s epic season finale a few months ago.

 

Eliot Glazer also has a webseries. It’s called It Gets Betterish:

 

That song Brent is singing is one of Enya’s greatest hits 🙂

Also, it features prominently in the climax of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Also, (full disclosure) I have this CD.
