Brooklyn synagogue desecrated with anti-Semitic graffiti
NEW YORK (AP) — The desecration of a Brooklyn synagogue with anti-Semitic graffiti has prompted the cancellation of a political event with a star of Comedy Central's "Broad City."
Police say epithets such as "Kill All Jews" were found in the halls and stairwells at Union Temple at around 8 p.m. Thursday.
The audience was sent home shortly after "Broad City's" Ilana Glazer was to start interviewing activists and politicians at the Prospect Heights synagogue's theater.
NEW YORK (AP) — Cynthia Nixon fans who agree with the former "Sex and the City" star that marijuana should be legalized can support her campaign for governor of New York by entering a contest to win a bong.
The contest to win a glass bong signed by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Comedy Central's "Broad City" runs through July 16.
The contest website says it "may be a silly contest but it's a serious issue."

LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Donald Trump's name is off limits on the upcoming season of Comedy Central's "Broad City."
Series creators Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson said Tuesday that Trump's name will be bleeped each time it's used in an episode — a move typically reserved for expletives.
Glazer told TV critics that talking constantly about Trump and his administration have made the sound of his name, as she put it, "so gross."
REVIEW: ‘Rough Night’ not so rough; fun, ensemble comedy
I’m always here for a women-led, ensemble comedy film — “Bridesmaids” still has my heart — so I was interested in seeing “Rough Night.” However, I have to be honest … I didn’t expect it to really make me laugh. But I did. From the beginning. To the end. While it might not do blockbuster numbers, I was entertained.
