Amy Schumer and her Inside Amy Schumer writers and producers really upped the ante for season three with some brilliantly brutal satire, biting with wit and laughs while making a very clear point that our culture’s priorities and viewpoints could use a shake-up.
Watch them, share them, learn them, live them.
Roll the clips!
“Milk Milk Lemonade” coyly takes the actual music videos of “Anaconda” and “Booty” from the likes of Nicki Minaj, J.Lo and Iggy Azalea and reminds us what it means to love butts. Thanks Amber Rose, Amber Tamblyn, Jemima Kirke, Margaret Champagne, Rachel Feinstein, Schumer and Method Man for showing us where the poo comes out.
“Football Town Nights” reunites Schumer with Josh Charles for a parody that spoofs not only the great Friday Night Lights (nice play on Coach and Tami Taylor, you kids!) but also the not-great rape culture that too many communities would rather silence than try to prevent actual rapes. We need more Coaches like this Coach. “Clear eyes, full hearts, no rape!” Written by Christine Nangle.
“Last Fuckable Day” finds Schumer stumbling upon a ceremonial picnic featuring Tina Fey and Patricia Arquette toasting Julia Louis-Dreyfus on her last fuckable day as an actress in the eyes of show business. Which just proves Hollywood is blind, because would you look at her? Also, shame on you Hollywood and show business for propagating this actual practice of putting older actresses out to sea in favor of the next young thing, while allowing men to do whatever they please. Please.
There’s also a wicked fake ad about birth control, which not only forces Amy Schumer and any woman to ask every boy and man in the world if they’re allowed to get birth control (thanks, Republican Congress), but also allows pharmacists (deftly played by Will Hines) to dole out guns to kids along with their pills. Plus Amy sits down for an interview with transsexual Bailey Jay, just in case you thought men and society weren’t hard enough on women.
