Abbi Jacobson attended Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) for her undergraduate studies, where she majored in Fine Arts and Video.
Before Broad City, Abbi worked on several other comedy projects, including a web series called "Chronic Gamer Girl" and an illustrated book called "Color This Book: New York City."
Abbi's first job out of college was as a background painter for an animated series, which she left to pursue her passion for comedy and acting.
Abbi originally wanted to be a professional illustrator, but her love for comedy and improv led her to create the show that would make her famous.
Abbi and Ilana Glazer, her Broad City co-creator, met at an improv class at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City and quickly became friends.
The duo initially began Broad City as a web series on YouTube before it was picked up by Comedy Central, with Amy Poehler as an executive producer.
In 2016, Abbi published a second illustrated book, "Carry This Book," which featured drawings of what she imagined various celebrities carried in their bags.
Abbi has a passion for travelling and has explored many countries, including a solo trip to Ireland at the age of 23, which she later described as a transformative experience.
Abbi Jacobson's net worth is estimated to be around $6 million, earned from her work on Broad City, her book deals, and voice acting roles.
She's an avid collector of vintage t-shirts and loves to visit thrift stores and flea markets to add to her collection.
Abbi is a skilled guitarist and has played in various bands throughout her life, showcasing her musical talent.
She is an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and has openly discussed her own fluid sexuality in interviews.
