In her individual monologue, Amy dragged along a bunch of celebs and their movies. It was honestly a great roast, IMO.

But in her stand-up shows right after the Oscars last month, Amy revealed a joke she wasn’t supposed to say. †don’t look up is the name of a movie?” she told her Vegas audience. “More than not looking down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun.” I couldn’t say anything about that.”

Obviously, that joke didn’t go down well with people at all, as it referenced the death of photography director Halyna Hutchins. Hutchins died from a prop gun allegedly fired by Alec Baldwin on the set of Rust.

“And now this was kind of like the Oscars — they said no, I couldn’t say it. I loved it. I don’t know why they said no,” she said.

“So my husband went up to me. Or as he calls it, Squid Game‘ Amy continued.

“So he’s in my nightmare alley, mine House of Gucci† And I say come on, come on† He goes Tap, tap… Boom! I say get off my Duneand thus our son was born,” she said flatly to a roaring crowd.

For those of you who don’t know, besides the Netflix hit show Squid Gamethese are all movies nominated at the Oscars of 2022.

‘What do you think? Can you believe they said no to that?’ she asked the crowd.


I can see why they said no to it. It’s not super offensive. It’s just not her best, TBH.

So now you say! What do you think of this discarded joke? Should it have tied the knot? Let me know in the comments below!
