Amy Schumer is the latest star to get swept up in “Hamilton”-fever, and she recruited the Broadway musical’s creator, writer and star to help her with a sketch for the upcoming season of “Inside Amy Schumer.”
This sneak peek at the Comedy Central sketch series shows Schumer inviting Lin-Manuel Miranda over under the false pretense of putting him on her show, but really, she’s there to show him a musical she’s come up with that’s “Hamilton”-esque.
“How hard can it be to write a hip-hopera about historical wig-and-knee-sock people?” she asks him, before launching into highlights from “Betsy Ross,” about the famous flag maker.
And of course, Betsy has a nemesis, whose name is Karen Hurr (not like Aaron Burr), played by the sketch’s writer and Schumer’s sister, Kim Caramele.
