Ilana Wexler is one of the main characters in Broad City.


Ilana Wexler is a free spirited 23 year old and Abbi Abrams' best friend on the show. She works unhappily as a sales rep at a firm called Deals Deals Deals and barely does anything while at work. She loves to smoke marijuana.

Ilana is non-committal to everything she does, and often sleeps around with men and women equally. The only constant aside from Abbi, is her relationship with dentist, Lincoln Rice. Lincoln wants Ilana to be his girlfriend but she tells him their relationship is purely physical. Despite that, she often shows emotion for him, becoming obviously upset when Lincoln tells Ilana he wants to be monogamous with another girl in Burning Bridges.

Ilana's parents Bobbie Wexler and Arthur Wexler make an appearance on the show. Their wackiness makes it easy to see where Ilana's personality comes from.
