‘Broad City’ takes on Birthright and turns Jewish anxieties into comic gold

The “Broad City” ladies make some sort of Jewish reference or joke in almost every episode of their Comedy Central show. But Wednesday night the real-life Jews took on their Jewiest topic yet: the free Birthright trip to Israel.

After spending most of the episode struggling to catch their flight, Abbi Abrams (Abbi Jacobson) and Ilana Wexler (Ilana Glazer) board the “El Ol” airplane just in time — and enter a satirical world of modern Jewish identity and anxiety that is at turns so exaggerated and so spot-on it’s hard to keep from squirming while laughing.
