Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive on a new "Inside Amy Schumer" sketch titled “Babies & Bustiers” which will premier on tomorrow's episode. The sketch perfectly tackles the insanity surrounding shows like "Toddlers & Tiaras" with Schumer playing Indiana pageant star Amy Merryweather Sherman. The sketch also features Jennifer Coolidge as Schumer's mom who understands Sherman's Fetal Red Bull Syndrome better than anyone else.
Schumer told EW that she had been trying to get this sketch to happen for three years. "I wrote this sketch the first season,” she said. “It just seemed like it would be such a pain in the ass to shoot—the sets, the production, the children. But then this turned into the year we’re just living all our dreams, so I was like, let’s do it.”
