Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson going on book tour
The final season of Broad City won’t air until 2019, but Ilana and Abbi are finding other ways to stay busy until then. Ilana recently wrapped up a activism-oriented live event series in NYC, and Abbi Jacobson is now focusing on her new book I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities, and Other Stuff, which comes out October 30 via Grand Central Publishing. Here’s the description:
From the co-creator and co-star of the hit series Broad City, a hilarious and poignant collection about love, loss, work, comedy, and figuring out who you really are when you thought you already knew.
When Abbi Jacobson announced to friends and acquaintances that she planned to drive across the country alone, she was met with lots of questions and opinions: Why wasn’t she going with friends? Wouldn’t it be incredibly lonely? The North route is better! Was it safe for a woman? The Southern route is the way to go! You should bring mace! And a common one… why? But Abbi had always found comfort in solitude, and needed space to step back and hit the reset button. As she spent time in each city and town on her way to Los Angeles, she mulled over the big questions– What do I really want? What is the worst possible scenario in which I could run into my ex? How has the decision to wear my shirts tucked in been pivotal in my adulthood? In this collection of anecdotes, observations and reflections–all told in the sharp, wildly funny, and relatable voice that has endeared Abbi to critics and fans alike–readers will feel like they’re in the passenger seat on a fun and, ultimately, inspiring journey. With some original illustrations by the author.
Abbi is also going on a book tour, beginning at NYC’s Town Hall on October 30. The show is presented in partnernship with The Strand. Tickets for that show are on sale now and include a copy of the book. All dates are listed below, and you can get tickets for all dates here.
