“Tribeca Talks: Inside Amy Schumer,” a panel discussion with the Emmy-nominated star of the Comedy Central sketch-series, was a hot ticket Sunday afternoon at the Tribeca Film festival.
The sold-out event took place at Spring Studios and featured a screening of the first episode of the third season, which airs Tuesday, April 21. Following the screening, Schumer participated in a Q&A, along with the show’s producers, writers, director, and DP: Dan Powell, Jessi Klein, Kevin Kane, Kim Caramele, Ryan McFaul, and moderator Sara Vilkomerson.
If you’ve seen Schumer’s hilarious show, you know no topic is off bounds. Most of her comedy sketches explore sex, relationships, and the general messiness of life.
Schumer spoke to only one journalist with a camera crew on the red carpet. She also posed for photographers and then made a speedy exit.
Everyone noticed Chris Rock, who was low key, leaning against a wall as Schumer spoke to the videographer and posed for photographs. Rock, who recently directed “Top Five,” seemed to be directing the camera crew, which caused speculation he was making a film.
A favorite Amy Schumer sketch is her hip-hop parody, “Milk Milk Lemonade,” which satirizes men’s obsessions with women’s butts. Here’s the hilarious YouTube clip that features Schumer along with Amber Rose and “Girls” Jemima Kirke.
Schumer has declared 2015 the year of the butt, and during the panel discussion – to which I couldn’t score a ticket – an attendee told me Schumer promised more tributes planned for the derriere.
