Abbi Jacobson from "Broad City" wrote a visual book, and here's what she has to say about it
We love the girls from Broad City, thus we love their side projects as well! So, it’s good that Abbi Jacobson wrote a visual book filled with sweet illustrations that express how she sees the world. Called Carry This Book, she reveals that likes to imagine the less-than-glam moments. For example, when she imagines Oprah, she envisions she’s carrying poop bags to clean up dog mess, alongside a Gratitude Journal, and of course, a copy of O Magazine. Oprah — just like us!
Rolling Stone had the opportunity to sit down and interview Jacobson, both to discuss the book, and talk about politics. (After all, we all loved Hillary Clinton’s surprise Broad City cameo, so obviously Jacobson knows a thing or two about the woman her fictional counterpart idolizes!)
As it turns out, the goal of the book was to humanize noteworthy people. See again, Oprah and the dog poop bags.
Jacobson also noted that celebrities have bits and pieces about them that often get glossed over in tabloids and on the news. For example, yes — they all use toilet paper. And hey, they probably even have a preference.
As for Jacobson’s own bag, she keeps it pretty minimal
(Also, of course, she carries tampons and Advil, and all that stuff.)
Later in the interview, she switched over and started chatting about the whole Hillary Clinton experience. Because obviously, that was huge.
Unfortunately, the meet-up was brief.
Of course, she’s openly supporting her girl on November 8th.
