2 DOPE QUEENS, featuring the hit comedy duo of Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, returns to HBO in February 2019 for a second series of four themed hour-long specials adapted from the hit podcast of the same name. Taped again in front of a live audience at Kings Theatre Brooklyn and directed by Sandra Restrepo, the first special debuts Friday, February 8 @ 11pm-midnight ET/PT on HBO, followed by three more shows subsequent Fridays at the same time.

The 2 Dope Queens return to HBO with some of their favorite stand-up comedians, including Rory Scovel, Solomon Georgio, Bowen Yang, Jamie Lee, Pat Brown and many more, along with celebrity guests, to talk music, nostalgia, fashion and how to be Regal AF.
