Amy Schumer devoted an entire episode of her Comedy Central show Tuesday to answering one very important question: Is Amy Schumer hot enough to be on TV?
In a spoof the classic film “12 Angry Men,” Schumer recruited Jeff Goldblum, Paul Giamatti, John Hawkes, Nick DiPaolo and eight others to settle the question of her hotness once and for all. Even Dennis Quaid, who recently made headlines for a viral Funny or Die prank, makes an appearance.
Tempers flared as most believed Schumer is not hot, with Hawkes casting the lone dissenting vote. The men are outraged but soon begin to change their minds as they admit they have fantasized about women less attractive than Schumer.
“I wanted to f–k Natalie from ‘Facts of Life,'” one of the jurors says in a clip (below). “And Amy is hotter than Natalie!”
Many are praising the episode as another successful attempt by Schumer to dissect society’s standards of beauty. She received similar praise for a sketch involving a picnic with several aging actresses who are celebrating their “last f–kable day.”
