Every episode of Inside Amy Schumer deserves to be talked about, but there’s always one segment that rises above the rest and necessitates a little extra conversation. In lieu of recapping full episodes, we’re here to help you with water-cooler conversation by letting you know which sketch was an absolute must-watch.
In “Last F**ckable Day,” the obvious stand-out sketch is “Football Night Lights,” wherein Amy Schumer tackles rape culture (and particularly its existence within football culture) with a twisted Friday Night Lights parody. But the quieter, equally excellent titular sketch featured guest stars — and lady heroes — Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Patricia Arquette.
Schumer runs into the women during a fancy wine party and learns that they’re celebrating Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ “last fuckable day.” The cutting sketch remarks on the way in which women in Hollywood are treated as disposable after a certain age, deemed no longer appealing to the masses, switching from love interests to mothers (and, in one small but perfect detail, starring in movies where the posters prominently feature a picture of a kitchen). It is, like most of Schumer’s comedy, brilliantly funny and brutal at the same time.
