In her solo monologue, Amy dragged in a bunch of celebrities and their movies. It was honestly a great roast, in my opinion.

But at her stand-up shows she did immediately after the Oscars last month, Amy revealed a joke she was told not to tell. “‘don’t look up is the name of a movie?'” he told his Las Vegas audience. “‘Rather don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun.’ I wasn’t allowed to say any of that.”

Obviously, that joke didn’t sit well with people, as it was a reference to the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Hutchins was killed by a prop gun reportedly fired by Alec Baldwin on the set of Oxide.

“And now this was a bit like the Oscars: they said no, I couldn’t say it. I loved it. I don’t know why they said no,” he said.

“So, my husband was licking me. Or as he calls it, squid gameAmy continued.

“So he’s in my nightmare Alley, me house of gucci. and i said go Go. He goes Tick, tick… boom! I say get out of me Duneand so our son was born,” he said flatly to a roaring crowd.

For those of you who don’t know, in addition to the hit Netflix show squid gameThese are all the films that were nominated for the 2022 Oscars.

“What do you think? Can you believe they said no to that?” he asked the crowd.


I want to understand why they said no. It’s not, like, super offensive. It’s just not his best, TBH.

And now you tell me! What do you think of this discarded joke? Should I have made the cut? Let me know below in the comments!
