The Women of Broad City Educate Stephen Colbert About “The Youths”

Seriously though, are those rainbow bagels any good? Because they look like Play-Doh.

Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the gals of Broad City, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, educated Colbert on some of the hot new youth trendz on the streets right now.  They educated him about what’s hot in social media (sosh meedz, they say) today, which includes these interesting new rainbow bagels that have been popping up everywhere.

True to their Broad City style, Jacobson and Glazer take Colbert to “Happy Bagel Place,” and the episode completely takes off from there. There are moments during this interview that I kind of have to stop and think, wow, okay, they really are themselves on Broad City. That’s just how they are, and that is freaking great. I dare you not to laugh at this one.

Tell us: would you go to Happy Bagel Place? Or, barring that, have you tried one of those rainbow bagels? Seriously, how are they, because they look like Play-Doh to me, and… yeah, no.
