This looks very familiar.
As we say our fond farewells to many of rotating cast of late-night talk show hosts, it’s important to remember that the actual celebrity interview portions of those shows are pretty terrible most of the time. And for the women who appear on those shows, it’s usually even worse.
In this send-up of the standard interview segment, Amy Schumer is the young actress in her first starring role stating the fun facts she probably practiced with her publicist while Bill Hader is the welcoming talk show host dripping with creepy undertones. While she talks about how down-to-earth she is, he makes inappropriate comments and sound effects, bringing David Letterman and Conan O’Brien to mind.
It’s completely ridiculous and uncomfortable, but this is the game Hollywood plays—and you’ve likely seen that type of interview before. The only thing missing from this is the variety game the host and star eventually play for laughs (and millions of views on YouTube).
And talk about the movie itself? That’s not really why you’re watching.
