Yas Queen Yas! ‘2 Dope Queens’ Gets HBO Premiere Date
2 Dope Queens listeners, your dreams have finally come true! (And, no, Bono and Phoebe Robinson aren’t getting married...yet.)
HBO announced today that the TV version of the hit comedy podcast from comediennes Jessica Williams (The Daily Show) and Robinson is coming to a small screen near you early next year.
To mark the truly momentous occasion, the queens themselves shared a hilarious teaser.
In addition to the banter of Williams and Robinson, 2 Dope Queens will include special guests, Jon Stewart (Williams’s old boss at the The Daily Show), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black) and Sarah Jessica Parker (no introduction required). The show will air each Friday night from February 2 to February 23.
To make matters even more exciting, the entire series is directed by female comedian Tig Notaro. (Do yourself a favor and listen to the 2DQ episode with Notaro immediately).
So pour a big ol’ glass of rosé and prepare to “YASSSS” your heart out when 2 Dope Queens hits HBO Friday, February 2 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
