dc.description.abstract This thesis examines the first two seasons of the Comedy Central show, Broad City. I use a combination of critical and invitational rhetoric in order to better understand the relationship between the two lead women both on and off screen. Through my analysis, I argue that the relationship between Abbi and Ilana portrays female kinship through the eroticism, intimacy, and care-giving demonstrated between the two women. en_US
