Democratic White House hopeful Hillary Clinton will make a guest appearance in the Season 3 debut of Comedy Central’s Broad City, exec produced by Saturday Night Live alum Amy Poehler who, some argue, was SNL’s best Hillary Clinton.
Last January, ahead of its Season 2 debut, Comedy Central announced the odd-couple comedy’s Season 3 order; the new season debuts February 17. Created by and starring Upright Citizens Brigade alums Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, it’s based on their digital series about two broke twentysomethings navigating life in New York.
News of her booking comes the morning after Clinton was SNL alum Seth Meyers’ guest on NBC’s Late Night, during which she made news pronouncing GOP frontrunner Donald Trump “no longer…funny.”
“I think for weeks you, and everybody else, were just bringing folks to hysterical laughter, but now he has gone way over the line,” she told Meyers. “And what he is saying now is not only shameful and wrong, it is dangerous…This latest demand that we not allow Muslims into the country plays into the hands of terrorists….is giving [ISIS] a great propaganda tool, a way to recruit more folks from Europe and United States.”
Clinton’s been on a Charm Offensive across the TV landscape since September, when she played Telephone with Pretend Donald Trump, aka Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. She’s also played a bartender on SNL, helped ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live beat CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert for the first time in total viewers and the demo, and paid a visit to “The Cathedral of Colbert,” goosing his Late Show ratings.
