Amy Schumer: ‘The Last F–kable Day’
This is so great, and a little bit painful.
In what was the most talked about sketch from the season premiere of Inside Amy Schumer, called “Last F–kable Day,” Amy learns the concept of, well, the very last day a women in Hollywood can be deemed “f–kable.”
We first see Amy, jogging in the woods, stumble upon a few women enjoying a breezy outdoor brunch. When they invite Amy to sit down, they explain the reason for the celebration.
“In every actress’s life, the media decides when you finally reach the point when you’re not believably f–kable anymore,” Julia says, a huge smile on her face. Amy doesn’t really get it though, and she asks how the women know.
“Nobody overtly tells you, but there are signs,” Tina says, stepping in.
From there, each women proceeds to list a few of the indicators that an actress’s f–kable days have come to an end. They include auditioning for Mrs. Claus, having your movies remade with younger women (like Selena Gomez!), and going to the wardrobe department on your latest movie and the only items available are long sweaters.
Of course, Amy asks how men know when their last f–kable day is, which the other women find hilarious. “Honey, men don’t have that day,” Patricia tells her, breaking the news gently, in a way too real moment of truth.
What did you guys think of the sketch? Funny and poignant or crass?
