Ilana Glazer Is Honoring Her Comic Idols — and Righting Sexist Ads — This Women's History Month

This Women’s History Month, Ilana Glazer is making sure to honor and support the powerful, strong, and hilarious women in her life — and in the world — in more ways than one. “I look up to my peers all the time,” Glazer tells POPSUGAR. “I’m so inspired by my peers. I’ve been living for Chelsea Handler these days. I just love her. Ali Wong is such a badass. Michelle Buteau is one of the funniest people — [she’s] full of light. Abbi Jacobson — I mean, my ‘Broad City’ sister. Wanda Sykes, Whoopi Goldberg . . . I just talked to Whoopi the other day.”

In comedy, Glazer adds, “There’s this opportunity to talk to your heroes, and your friends are your heroes, and your heroes are your friends. I feel so fortunate all the time. The women that I see around me all the time — I love these women, and they just give me so much fuel.” From Amy Schumer to Leslie Jones, she says, the growing ecosystem of contemporary female comics has been a source of energy and inspiration.
