The hit Comedy Central show Broad City is now three seasons in and doesn't seem to be letting up.

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are the two major stars who brought the series to life and they recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about their show.

DeGeneres congratulated both Jacobson and Glazer for the success on the show and the women admitted that they talk about DeGeneres all of the time. They raved about DeGeneres' stand-up and DeGeneres pointed out that most people just know about the TV show and not her comedy.

Glazer was actually celebrating her birthday and she and Jacobson described Broad City, the show which finds two friends getting into some serious adventures in New York City.

The show was a web series that turned into a series for Comedy Central. Glazer and Jacobson reached out to Amy Poehler and they both agreed that having her has been really helpful. The women also had Hillary Clinton on the show and explained their excitement when they met her.

They told DeGeneres about Clinton being good enough to play herself in the show. Jacobson and Glazer's moms have both been featured on the show as well.

DeGeneres asked the women that they replace the Oprah poster in the room with an Ellen poster, so that she could be part of the show. You can check out the interview in the video below.
