Watch Abbi Jacobson Play Feminist Icon Gloria Steinem & Infiltrate the Playboy Club on ‘Drunk History’
Once upon a time, feminist icon Gloria Steinem went undercover as an aspiring “waitress” at the Manhattan Playboy Club to expose the indignities of being a bunny. Lucky for us, Abbi Jacobson (Broad City) just recreated Steinem’s glorious journey on Drunk History.
ESPN host and comedian Katie Nolan narrates the tale of Steinem’s covert mission to infiltrate the once misogynistic club with tipsy fervor. Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) portrays a “bunny mother” named Sheralee who hands Steinem an enormous book of bunny rules.
IRL, Steinem’s exposé, “A Bunny’s Tale,” was published in Show magazine in 1963 and not only sparked lasting change in Hugh Hefner’s clubs, but made her a luminary.
In the words of Abbi, yaass, kween. Yaass!
