Abbi and Ilana Talk Breastfeeding With a Very Chill Larry Wilmore

Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer stopped by The Nightly Show on Thursday night to chat casually about breastfeeding, the National Spelling Bee and racial stereotypes.

But first, before kicking off the convo, Larry Wilmore relocated the panel—which also included Nightly Show contributor Ricky Velez—to a more comfy sitch. Instead of the usual stuffy desk, they chilled in the “Cool Millennial Hangout Area,” aka a living room set.


In the clip below, the panel discusses breastfeeding and the Scripps National Spelling Bee while Wilmore eats a bag of Funyuns (no joke, I had some last night). When Wilmore asks if any of the guests has an issue with women breastfeeding in public, Ricky Velez responds, “Nope... I’ve never been mad at a titty, Larry.” Ugh.

“I have,” says Jacobson. “I’ve been mad at a titty before...Two in particular.”

The panel also talk about whether it’s racist to point out a positive stereotype about a group of people, to which Glazer responds, “It’s efficient.”

Jacobson adds, “It’s better than a negative stereotype.”
