Things We Saw Today: Abbi Jacobson Plays Gloria Steinem on the Latest Drunk History
A young, feminist writer named Gloria Steinem shot to prominence thanks in large part to an exposé she wrote for Show Magazine called “A Bunny’s Tale,” in which she infiltrated Hugh Hefner’s infamous Playboy Club to find out how the bunnies were treated. Spoiler alert: not well. Drunk History captures Steinem’s time undercover as a Playboy bunny.
Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson plays Steinem, with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s Jane Krakowski in the role of the Playboy “bunny mother,” Sheralee. The tale is hilariously told by ESPN host and comedian Katie Nolan, who says “bullshit” a lot and is highly entertaining. You can watch the whole segment above! (via Vanity Fair)
