"I think that you are one of the coolest people I have ever met in my life," Ripa, a South Jersey native, said to start Jacobson's interview. "I want to know about your talent."
As it turns out, Ripa's Jacobson fandom began following the Comedy Central star's speaking date at the Paley Center last November. Now, though, that fandom will come full-circle with Ripa's guest appearance on tonight's episode of Broad City.
"Oh my goodness," Jacobson said of the episode. "You guys are going to die."
The episode will revolve around Jacobson working coat check, which leads to her giving Ripa's coat to the wrong person and the ensuing chase to get it back. Ripa, who plays herself in the episode, describes her character as "my alter ego's alter ego."
"Not evil," Ripa clarified. "It is a party Kelly Ripa. A misguided Kelly Ripa."
