VIDEO: Amy Schumer, Tina Fey And Patricia Arquette Celebrate Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ “Last F*ckable Day”

On last night’s season three premiere of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, Tina Fey, Patricia Arquette and Julia Louis-Dreyfus teamed up to skewer ageism and sexism in Hollywood with a highly entertaining sketch about JLD’s last fuckable day on the planet. There’s a viking funeral involved, and some ice cream called Jen & Carrie’s Vanilla of a Certain Age.

In an interview with Vulture, Schumer said she’s been planning this one for a long, long time:

The team had been trying to make this sketch for three years, but a lot of actresses said no. “We were thinking of a Diane Keaton or a Mia Farrow,” said co-creator and executive producer Dan Powell. “Can’t imagine why those two wouldn’t want to work together,” Schumer piped in with her typical on-point dry humor. “More and more in Hollywood you see a 65-year old dude and Natalie Portman, or the other one that looks like her. I was obsessed with the idea of [having a] Viking funeral and pushing Julia out on the boat [as the ritual where older actresses celebrate their switch over to the dark side].”

Now pardon me, while I watch this five more times and high five a million angels.
