Comedian Abbi Jacobson, who co-stars on the Comedy Central program Broad City with Ilana Glazer, is a well-known fan of Phish. Last night’s third season episode of Broad City featured a story line that wove several references to the foursome from Vermont throughout the show.

“My brother was so into Phish and the [Grateful] Dead, and so I was,” Jacobson recently told Marc Maron on his WTF podcast. She went on to discuss memories of Jerry Garcia’s death, seeing RatDog and Phil Lesh & Friends and how all her friends in high school were “Phish fans.”

Last night Jacobson worked several Phish-centric references into the latest Broad City episode, including dropping lyrics to “Run Like An Antelope” and “Cavern.” Watch a couple clips of from the episode below:
