In an Australian exclusive, Arts Centre Melbourne and Penny Drop present Ilana Glazer, appearing at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall for a night of stand-up on 9 June 2018.

The New York-based comedian is best-known as a co-creator and co-star of the hit New York-based series, Broad City, which she produced with her creative partner Abbi Jacobson. As the headline performer at MEL&NYC, a new program of multi-disciplinary events celebrating the influence of New York City on our arts and culture, Glazer will return to the stage for an hour of stand-up.

In recent years, Glazer has starred alongside Scarlett Johansson and Demi Moore in Sony’s Rough Night, lent her voice to the Netflix animated series BoJack Horseman and co-created the Comedy Central miniseries Time Traveling Bong. She recently embarked on an 11-city comedy tour alongside Phoebe Robinson, the host of podcast Sooo Many White Guys, which Glazer produces.

This winter, leading Melbourne cultural venues and communities will come together to present MEL&NYC, an unprecedented program of events that explore culture, politics, business and everyday experience seen through the eyes of leading New Yorkers and Australians.
