We posted the video short of new SNL cast member Sasheer Zamata as a guide giving tours of Girls locations in Brooklyn. That is likely to turn into a reality as On Locations Tours, the company that did Sex & the City bus tours of NYC, is going to do one for the hit HBO show. On Location rep Georgette Blau told the Daily News visitors could be bussing around Bushwick and Greenpoint this fall. "The locations aren't exactly glamorous, but they're authentic," Blau said, adding, "It's so hot right now. I hope that hipsters would embrace it."

Elsewhere, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham will host SNL this weekend with The National as musical guests, making it perhaps the most Brooklyn episode of Saturday Night Live ever. You can watch a bunch of promos for the episode all strung together below.

And while on the subject of comedies about 20-something girls trying to make it in the Big City, if you haven't watched Broad City on Comedy Central yet, it's real funny, and may speak to some of you more than Dunham and crew do. (Plus Hannibal Buress as a dentist!) A few clips of that below....

I LOVE how much this much be infuriating transplants who thought Brooklyn was "hip" and not mainstream when they moved there. Enjoy.

ZOMG!

That can only mean one thing: I need to start hiring more chefs to cook up the newest in the line of Billyburgers. I'm calling it The GPRare. If you ask for it cooked any other way, fuck off.

*snort* 'won the thread' - as if. You're all pathetic losers. If you think a Girls tour of Brooklyn makes it uncool/over/whatever, then you've never been 'cool'. I hope you all die.

Fat ugly girls. So disgusting. Cottage cheese pile of garbage.

Yeah she may be an obese little turf, but you can't tell me she probably doesn't give the best blowie on the east coast.

The thought of Lena Dunham squatting over me like that tests my gag reflexes.

This picture is taken at the corner of my block. I already want to kill myself.

That neighborhood is so fucked. There's no longer anything "Brooklyn" about it. The native New Yorker's are all gone. What you get in return is a 24 hr Middle American Frat party.

^Good! Don't let the door hit 'yous' on the way out.
