2 DOPE QUEENS, featuring the hit comedy duo of Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, returns to HBO next month for a second series of four themed hour-long specials adapted from the hit podcast of the same name.

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.
