Amy Schumer and friends pose for Vogue; in career-swap, Vogue editor Anna Wintour does stand-up

Amy Schumer graces the cover of Vogue for its July 2016 issue, and in an accompanying video sketch written by Schumer, she and Vogue editor Anna Wintour trade places for a few minutes.

Which means we now have footage of Wintour performing stand-up at The Comedy Cellar.

Schumer’s friends Rachel Feinstein, Marina Franklin and Keith Robinson appear in the sketch video. And in one of Annie Leibovitz’s photos for the Vogue spread, Schumer also gathers Bridget Everett, Jim Norton and Colin Quinn into the picture (as seen above).

Lots of amazing quotes and colorful details from the writer who followed Schumer on tour in April.

Here’s just one.

Says Schumer: “I wouldn’t know what motivates Tina Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. This insatiable drive. I have it too. Sometimes I feel like they’re hustling, they want something, and they’re not going to stop until they get it, and they play the game. I am very into making up my own rules. Like, I don’t want to play the game and succeed at it. I want to redefine it. That’s the only way I can deal with it. Maybe that’s naive.”
