Former Broad City star Ilana Glazer returned to Comedy Central Tuesday to talk her politically charged stand-up tour and comedy special on The Daily Show.

The comedian first discussed the fairly dire title of her new Amazon Prime stand-up special, The Planet Is Burning. “It is my lens in which I think things are funny. It’s like, the planet is burning, and we’re not talking about it all the time. It’s pathetically funny,” Glazer said. “Also I thought, if I was gonna have billboards and repeat a phrase over and over again, this was probably a worthwhile one.”

After analyzing how her stand-up persona differs from that of her Broad City character, Glazer and Trevor Noah talked about her upcoming stand-up tour, dubbed the Horny 4 Tha Polls tour.

“I am so horny for the polls,” Glazer admitted before talking about her political activism. “I consider myself more an advocate. I have a political organization, Generator, and I’m going on tour in March. Every city that I do stand-up in, we’re doing a voter empowerment dance party with Generator… It is so dorky. My co-founder and I, we’re nerds. We’re horny for voting.”
