Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Broad City is an edgy comedy about a pair of female best friends in New York City who steal, party, and smoke pot regularly -- all for laughs. One of the friends has a casual boyfriend she's using for sex; the friends attempt to make money to go to a concert by posting a Craigslist ad offering to clean apartments in their underwear. It's all very funny and comes off as real (which makes sense -- leads Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are real-life best friends), but neither girl is exactly the type of bright, clean-cut, go-getter parents might prefer teens to emulate.

Sexual Content

No nudity, but subplots include Ilana's casual sexual relationship with a friend (she Skypes Abbi while in the midst of having sex with him) and the friends attempting to make money by cleaning a total stranger's apartment in their underwear.


Not applicable


Infrequent F-words are bleeped, but strong language includes references to body parts, sex, and obscene insults.

Social Behavior

Characters slack off work, steal things, buy and sell drugs, and sleep around, but it's all played for laughs.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Abbi and Ilana drink and smoke pot on-screen and refer to other drugs. They get drunk and high and act silly. We watch them buying pot from a friend and dickering over the price.
