Amy Schumer Reveals the Joke She Wasn’t Allowed to Tell at Oscars 2022

During a stand up comedy set, Amy spoke about co-hosting the 2022 Oscars and revealed one joke she was not allowed to tell.

Amy Schumer performed a stand up comedy set at the Mirage Theater in Las Vegas on Saturday (April 2). During the comedy set, she spoke about co-hosting the 2022 Oscars and revealed one joke she was not allowed to tell.

The joke was about Alec Baldwin and his tragic on set shooting while making the movie Rust.

During the Oscars night, Schumer told the crowd ahead of the jokes, “I want to preface these Oscar jokes by saying that my lawyer said not to say these. Don’t tell anybody and don’t get mad at me.”

Amy revealed during an interview with Vanity Fair that the joke she wasn’t allowed to tell was: “Don’t Look Up is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun. I wasn’t allowed to say any of that [at the Oscars], but you can just come up and [slap] someone.”

Schumer referred to Smith as “Ali” during her April 2 comedy set, a reference to Smith’s performance as boxer Muhammed Ali.

“I was kind of feeling myself…and then all of a sudden Ali was making his way up,” Schumer said (via Vanity Fair). “And it was just a fucking bummer. All I can say is that it was really sad, and I think it says so much about toxic masculinity”.

About Smith’s slap, Schumer called the incident “disturbing.”

“So much pain in Will Smith,” Schumer added. “Anyway, I’m still in shock and stunned and sad. I’m proud of myself and my cohosts. But yeah. Waiting for this sickening feeling to go away from what we all witnessed.”
