“2 Dope Queens” Premieres Feb. 2 On HBO

Podcast stars “2 Dope Queens” are taking their tales of dating, crappy NYC apartments, hair struggles and “hot peen” to HBO for a four-part comedy series.

The queens – comedian Phoebe Robinson and actress Jessica Willams – will star in the series, where each week, they’ll take on a new topic with a special celebrity guest.

“We talk about cocoa butter, racism, dating, pop culture stuff – we just have a party,” Robinson told us Thursday night at the NYC premiere. “We force celebrities to talk about hot peen. Just everyday life. Like ‘Waiting To Exhale’ without the sad stuff.”

In one episode, the pair chats about video games and being black nerds – or “blerds” with actress Uzo Adoba. In another. they team up with “The Incredible Kimmy Schmidt’s” Tutus Burgess for a show about the joys of “hot peen.”

But Williams said her favorite moment from filming was breaking down black hair care over brunch with actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

“We actually really wanted her on the hair episode because she’s had some really incredible hair, but also it was nice to have this cross-cultural discussion,” Williams told us “She was just genuinely curious and really respectful, and really kind. It just felt like we were talking to a really nice girlfriend.”

Robinson said she hoped that the show would encourage other networks to take note of the diversity in comedy.
“Get on board,” Robinson said. “This is the future. This is 2018.”
