Sasha Velour, Shangela, and Jiggly Caliente Were All on 'Broad City'

Broad City Drag Brunch

Everyone loves a good drag brunch. Well except for those pesky “I’m not like the other gays” people. But other than that, everyone does. Even Mr. Alan Cumming, the New York-based legendary performer currently starring in Jeremy O. Harris’s Daddy but that also appeared in Spice World and The Good Wife, who plays himself in the latest episode of Broad City’s final season. The only thing better than Cumming playing himself? Playing himself while hosting a drag brunch.

In the clip, Ilana and Abbi stumble upon Cummings walking across the street — they are meant to take care of Ilana’s distant relative, but instead get caught up in the new task of obsessively stalking Cumming to see where he goes. Cumming happens to be in an all-over print short-suit, headed to host drag brunch. And that’s when the cameos start galore.  

First up there’s Jinkx Monsoon.

Though she doesn’t make a physical appearance on the screen, Jinx appears as the literal “poster child” for the event. We love promo!

Then there’s Jiggly Caliente.

Not only does this episode include a drag brunch, but it’s also … a musical? That works! For the first namecheck of Cumming’s number: “Jiggly Caliente is the best.” Which, valid!

Brita Filter shakes her breast.

The Polynesian princess herself! You might remember her cameo from that Katy Perry on Saturday Night Live performance.

Jan Sport tops you off.

The Stephanie’s Child singer (Yes, they actually sing live.) knows her way around a bottle of champagne.

Spotlight on Sasha Velour.

“Our queen,” Cumming calls her. And in a look she wore at DragCon LA as well! We love a rule who is smart about her investments.

Shangela is still a professional.

Fresh off an Oscars appearance, now working freelance down at some brunch spot? If she likes it, we love it.

Blackie O and Delilah Brooks help us close out.

You ain’t gotta go home but you gotta get the hell out of here.
