Amy Schumer’s hilarious take on ageism

“In every actress’s life, the media decides when you finally reach a point where you’re not believably f*ckable anymore.” This sketch from a recent episode of Inside Amy Schumer (binge watch alert) is an elegant evisceration of the entertainment industry’s attitude to women who dare to age on screen. On her morning walk, Schumer comes across a table in the woods around which are gathered Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Patricia Arquette. Fey and Arquette are toasting Louis-Dreyfus’s last f*ckable day, ie the last day that the world will see her as a sexual object before she passes permanently into the barren land of Mother Roles.
