Transcript for ‘Broad City’ comedian wants millennials and Gen Z to vote
Welcome back to "Gma3." Our next guest is co-creator of the hit show "Broad city." Her new web series, cheat sheet for the voting booth, reaching young voters who might not be so enthusiastic about heading to the polls next week. Take a look. Voting is not easy. I wish it were. What district am I in? Senate, congress. Federal, state, local. You're not stupid. This system, they make it elusive so that you're intimidated so that you don't step up and claim how it's supposed to serve you, which it should. For the first time, we make up the biggest voting block. We've got this. We've got this. We've got Ilana glazer with us right now. Hello. Thank you so much for being here with us. We talked so much about these pandemic pivots. You had to cancel a tour because the pandemic hit. And then you had to do your pivot. How long did it take to come one this idea of activism still being engaged? Immediate or develop time for your pivot? It took me some time. I couldn't like -- I had such whiplash, I was on tour with standup going around the country doing standup, and then each city was throwing voter empowerment dance party with my nonprofit, where we danced for 15 minutes at a time and then paused to have activists and politicians to come on stage and help us create a cheat sheet for the voting booth in whatever city we're in, and it's so fun in person and we were dancing and having so much fun. Then, when covid hit and I had to go home, it took me about a month or so of just like, whoa, catching my breath. What is going on? It was so unbelievable. This new reality. It still kind of is. Oh, my gosh, every day I feel like, I look around and think, is this really happening still? There's no end in sight. You found a way to reach those young people, a 20-part web series now with the cheat sheet for the voting booth. Tell us what you hope you accomplish with this. So, 20 parts, when I hear you say that back, I'm like, oh, my goodness, why did we do this? The thing is, I knew and my team knew that it was going to be such a long bill. You can't ask young people two weeks before the election, please vote, you know, your vote's important. I really wanted to start in August to create little lists along the way and it's just fun election content. Everything is so doom and gloom this election. So it's this series where I interview athletes, activists, actors, celebrities, whatever, stars with personal connections to battleground states. And we talk top ballot, about the presidential race, and then go down ballot and highlight local, city and state candidates who have really -- who have chances to win by tight margins. It's so disarming and puts us all in the same boat. Such an empowering thing to give to younger voters. You can watch this amazing web series at cheat sheet for the voting booth.com. Ilana, thank you so much. We really appreciate it. Thanks for having me. You guys are so great. Thank you. I think she woke you up finally, T.J. At the end of the show. Only took until the last two minutes of the show. We should have had her on first.
