In the sketch, the fake sitcom “Perfect Matches” starts with a “hot wife” character folding her overweight husband’s laundry while a news show on TV asks “is your husband cheating on you with a hotter woman?”
Schumer plays a neighbor who stops by to deliver lines like “When’s lunch?” and gets hit on by a lovable mailman played by an Indian actor. When every dumb joke uttered by male characters gets a live studio audience laugh and Amy’s lines fall flat, Schumer drops the act and gives the audience a piece of her mind.
“No one is even listening to me,” Schumer said, adding that the sexist show is also guilty for its “horrible depiction” of the Indian character. “These jokes aren’t funny. You’re just used to the rhythms of laughing at them.”
What happens when Schumer’s female character calls the show out? A joke from the overweight husband about taking “a huge dump” because he’s fat gets a big laugh. Even non-verbal gibberish uttered by another male character cracks up the studio audience.
