Two of the most explosive emerging voices in comedy and real-life friends Ilana Glazer and Phoebe Robinson join up here as part of their YQY (Yas, Queen, Yas) stand-up tour. Glazer is best known for co-creating, writing and directing the Comedy Central show Broad City with Abbi Jacobson, currently in its fourth season. Robinson's main claim to fame is Two Dope Queens, a stand-up podcast co-hosted by Jessica Williams, though she has also released the book You Can't Touch My Hair (And Other Things I Still Have To Explain), and is working on a second. Though this is the duo's first time touring together, they've collaborated on the podcast Sooo Many White Guys, hosted by Robinson and executive produced by Glazer. In addition to releasing hilarious material in multiple mediums, the duo are on a mission to create a space and boost the voice of a new generation that is increasingly intersectional, racially diverse, and queer. Sooo Many White Guys features one token white male per season, Two Dope Queens shines the light on lesser-known comics of color alongside more famous voices, and Broad City has been praised for its inclusivity and sex-positivity, with Glazer herself playing a Jewish, polyamorous bisexual. Expect some excellent stand-up and exchanges about celebrity crushes, "45," and abreevs. BYE-Q-BYE, bee bees. —Caleb Oakley
