Amy Schumer has nothing.
As I said, there’s nothing more to say about the 2022 Oscars — at least, that’s what she said in her first stand-up appearance after hosting the messy awards show just over a week ago.
“I really don’t know what to say. I’m not joking about it,” she said during Saturday’s “Aces of Comedy” show at the Mirage in Las Vegas (via the Hollywood Reporter). “All I can say is I don’t know if you saw this, but Will Smith slapped Chris Rock. Did you read that in your newsfeed?”
Smith, of course, resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Friday to forestall any punishment he might face.
In her stand-up act, Schumer said it was her first headlining act since pregnancy. She and husband Chris Fischer welcomed son Gene Fischer in May 2019. In the fall of 2021, she underwent endometriosis-related surgery, which removed her uterus and appendix.
Post-Oscars, Schumer called the co-hosting gig “a real honor,” writing on Instagram that she had fun and “my jaw is still on the floor.” She also congratulated her co-hosts Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall and gave props to Questlove, whose Oscar win for the documentary Summer of Soul was overshadowed by the slap in the face.
In Vegas, the comic said that Smith’s misconduct messed with their hosting zen. She blamed “toxic masculinity” for the Best Actor winner’s behavior.
“I was kind of feeling myself … and then all of a sudden Ali was on his way upstairs,” Schumer said, referring to Smith’s Oscar-nominated performance in the biopic about fighter Muhammad Ali. “And it was just nonsense.”
The ‘Trainwreck’ star – who kicks off her whore tour in August – then addressed some jokes she said she wasn’t allowed to say during the Oscars broadcast. Below it: “‘Don’t Look Up’ is the name of a movie? Don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun.”
