Amy Schumer exposes the Alec Baldwin joke she was prohibited from telling at the Oscars
Amy Schumer performed a stand-up show at the Mirage Theater in Las Vegas on April 2, where she revealed to the audience that many of the gags and jokes she wrote did not make it to the Oscars.
This weekend, Amy Schumer, who co-hosted this year's Oscar Awards Gala with Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall, revealed that the Academy Awards organization had told her to prohibit jokes about the Alec Baldwin scandal and the late photographer Halyna Hutchins .
She also starred in a stand-up show at the Mirage Theater in Las Vegas on April 2, where she told the audience that many of the jokes and jokes she wrote did not make it to the Oscars.
I want to share with you these Oscar jokes that my lawyer said don't tell them. So don't tell anyone, and don't be mad at me, please, "said Schumer, who said his repertoire includes allusions to controversial figures such as James Franco and Joe Rogan.
"Like: 'Isn't Look Up the title of a film ?' It's more like, 'Don't look down at Alec Baldwin's gun barrel,' the comedian said. "I wasn't permitted to say anything (at the ceremony), but you can go upstairs and slap someone.
However, Schumer included Don't Lookup in his Oscar monologue when he jokingly said, "Don't Look Up has been selected. I guess Academy members didn't see the reviews!"
During the same show in Las Vegas, Amy talked openly about Will Smith slapping comedian Chris Rock, who has been the topic of debate ever since.
The producer said, I felt full, and then, all of a sudden, Ali (referring to a Smith movie in which he plays boxer Muhammad Ali) was walking on stage.
And it was quite a disappointment. All I can say is that it was heartbreaking, and I think it says a lot about poisonous masculinity. It was annoying, but I think the best way to reassure us is to tell more Oscar jokes that I wasn't allowed to tell on TV.
