Watch: Thou Darest Not Compete in a Lip Sync Battle With Abbi Jacobson… Unless You’re Ilana Glazer


Abbi Jacobson already became lip syncing royalty with her riveting, nude performance of Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory” on Broad City. With such a glorious (and edgy!) display of her talents already accessible to the public, it seems a fool’s errand to compete with the comedian/(yas) Queen of the Lip Sync. Now that a clip of her performance from her upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle has been released, the idea of beating Jacobson seems even more unlikely.

And yet, one brave soul has dared to attempt it. And that brave soul is her Broad City co-star/creator Ilana Glazer. As seen in the clip below, she’ll have to one-up Jacobson’s fiery performance of the Dreamgirls song, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”

Find out whether Glazer’s got what it takes to outdo that ferocious (silent) vibrato and those inimitable grimaces of lip synced passion on Spike this Thursday at 10 pm ET.
