Behold Inside Amy Schumer’s Dead-On 12 Angry Men

By

Last night's episode of Inside Amy Schumer pushed the show's gutsy, bawdy brilliance to a new level of sustained excellence. "12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer" took over the whole episode, and it offered a pretty brutal send-up of the kinds of misogynistic vitriol famous women face. It's also an excellent re-creation of its source material: This is an incredibly specific parody, with staging, costuming, and props exactly mimicking the 1957 classic. Right down to the switchblades! Well, almost.

The cross-fade from the courtroom into the jury room is a perfect match ...

Same for Henry Zebrowski. The guy just wants to go to the Blake Shelton concert! Er ... baseball game.
