Best MICA Alum: Abbi Jacobson

The Maryland Institute College of Art boasts a fairly long list of distinguished alumni, but none have brought the school’s students and fellow alumni as much pride in their alma mater than Abbi Jacobson, one-half of the duo that created and stars in Comedy Central’s “Broad City.” (Sorry, Jeff Koons. Actually, not sorry.) If art is supposed to act as a window into reality, “Broad City” is a brilliantly accurate window into the lives of many young women who are just trying to survive, get high, get laid, and not be terrible people in the process. Along with her partner-in-geniusness Ilana Glazer, Jacobson tells us more about ourselves than we ever knew. And after two seasons, we’ve already found ourselves speaking fluently in “Broad City”-isms. Yas kween.
