Amy Schumer Just Called Out a Sexist Audience Member in the Best Way Possible
Whether you love Amy Schumer and can not WAIT to get your hands on her new book or are seriously perturbed about that whole convo she had with Lena Dunham, you’ve gotta’ admit that the way she handled a heckling audience member in Stockholm on Wednesday was SERIOUSLY boss.
On hand to perform a stand-up show, Amy was mid-shtick (two minutes in, to be exact) when an audience member called out a particularly lewd comment: “Show us your tits!”
Rather than ignore it, Amy addressed the man head on, having the audience point him out so she could zero in on him. “Everybody point at him, so I know which one,” she began.
Finding her culprit (“Don’t be shy,” she says. “You just yelled show us your tits!”), she immediately went in on everything from his wardrobe (the man was also wearing a completely charming shirt which read “I love p*ssies.”) to his job.
Revealing that he worked in sales, Amy chided him (“How’s that working out? Is it going well? Cause we’re not buying it”) before laying down the law.
“That’s really cute. That’s really cute. But if you yell out again, you’re gonna be yelling show us your tits to people in the parking lot, cause you’re going to be thrown out, mother*cker,” she said. “I’ll show my tits when I want to.”
The man failed to heed her warning, however, yelling out again just moments later, so Amy made good on her word, signaling for the guards to take him outside.
“We’re going to miss you SO much. I already miss him,” she joked before polling the audience about whether or not she made the right decision. “Clap if you think he should be escorted out.”
The thunderous applause spoke for itself.
Watch her dominate the moment below:
