This parody of “The Newsroom” from Tuesday’s (April 15) “Inside Amy Schumer” would be great even without an Aaron Sorkin veteran at its center. That former “Sports Night” star Josh Charles joins Schumer in “The Foodroom” puts it over the top.
The writing, pacing and style of the sketch are spot-on, and so are Schumer’s observations about the shortcomings of “The Newsroom”: “A woman’s life is worth nothing unless she’s making a great man greater,” Schumer’s fast-food worker — just back from a stint at a Sbarro in Tel Aviv — tells Charles’ store manager.
(Also, watch until the end credit, which is also just about perfect.)
“Inside Amy Schumer” airs at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT Tuesday on Comedy Central.
