Hamptonite Kelly Ripa guest starred on last night’s episode of the popular Comedy Central series Broad City as herself, albeit a highly fictionalized version of herself. And we do mean highly.

Broad City follows friends Ilana (Ilana Glazer) and Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) and all the trouble they get into.

In this episode, Ripa got super drunk and high with Abbi, who is surprised to learn Ripa is nothing like her clean-cut daytime TV image.

Watch a clip from the episode:

Bridgehampton’s Bob Balaban also guest starred in season two of Broad City, but not as himself. Balaban plays Ilana’s father. Playing Ilana’s mother is Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm) who performed a stand-up show last year at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, where Balaban will direct The New Sincerity this summer.
