Comedy Writer and host of the podcast "Too Many White Guys", Phoebe Robinson, and Daily Show Correspondent and UCB troupe and Sketch connoisseur, Jessica Williams are not just dope; they are "2 Dope Queens".
We can all agree living in NYC is an experience of its own with strange nuances and consistent "what the fuck just happened" moments. The highly talked about WNYC podcast 2 Dope Queens takes a funny approach to living in this grueling city by tackling issues such as dating, love, sex, politics, to well…vaginas.
These funny ladies’ quick banter, witty comments, and conversational approach make you feel like you are talking to your girlfriends over a glass of sparkling rosé.

"One and a half episodes in and I’m hooked. The hosts are funny, the guests are funny, and the show just seems well rounded. I laugh pretty much the whole time and it honestly helps put me in a better mood, which is what comedy should do."
You can also hold the 2 drink minimum since this show features guest appearances and performances from local NYC comics. One reviewer states…
"I am a huge fan of Phoebe and Jessica, so it’s great to hear them bantering together and introducing me to comics I didn’t know before. Can’t wait to check out Aparna (Aparna Nancherla) in person!"
