Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer narrowly avoided a major awards show mishap: 'It was a whole thing'

For "Broad City" stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, life often becomes a real-world sitcom.

Jacobson recently opened up about one of her worst-ever travel experiences, which she suffered alongside co-star and close friend Glazer -- and we could easily see a version of this debacle unfolding on their show.

"Ilana and I flew from New York to LA for the WGA Awards a few years ago, and we got off the plane in LA and left our dresses on the plane," Jacobson recounted to AOL. "Of course we left our dresses on the plane."

Had the two checked their bags, they could've recovered their items at baggage claim -- but the dresses were trapped in the cabin.

"Once you get off, you aren't allowed back on, so it was a whole thing," Jacobson said. "Oy."

Thankfully, most of Jacobson's travels aren't so stressful. The actress is a big fan of Virgin Atlantic's new transatlantic WiFi -- so much so that she recently hopped onboard a commercial plane to headline the world's first in-flight comedy festival.
