Is ‘Time Traveling Bong’ really a show?

Time Traveling Bong

Wait, is this a real show? Yes, it’s a three-episode miniseries created by Broad City’s Ilana Glazer, Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. Glazer and Downs star as stoner cousins Sharee and Jeff, who discover a futuristic bong that allows them to travel through time. When the bong gets damaged, they find themselves flung to various time periods in their attempt to return home. Along the way, they join an ancient Greek orgy, kidnap a young Michael Jackson and inadvertently inspire the Salem witch trials.

How stoned do I have to be to enjoy it? The best stoner comedies are even funnier to sober viewers, and Bong features a surprising amount of social commentary amid its gross-out jokes. Both are sporadically successful, so smoking up probably couldn’t hurt.

Is it better than Hot Tub Time Machine? No, but it’s much, much better than Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Time Traveling Bong April 20-22, 10:30 p.m., Comedy Central
