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.
Genius. Also I would take up smoking like a motherfucker if Tina Fey would light my cigars with flaming arrows.
Right? My Tina Fey crush just grew even bigger.
Thanks, because I had “This is where the poo comes out…”, for the last 10 days, stuck on my head.
I can’t stop watching this.
just a bunch of white spiders.
hilarious and so disgusting.
That is my dream table. Perfect, so smart and sadly true
I was squeeeling at the screen when this came on. So good. Then I watched some Veep after. So happy.
This was awesome. You should also check out the sketch about rape and the one about birth control from last night premiere. So on point.
Why isn’t this sketch basically All Television Forever? I mean besides the patriarchy, obvs.
This was brilliant.
As someone who has reached this age, I gotta tell you it’s a little bit of a relief.
