Playing Amy Schumer Goes After Bill Cosby During 'Inside Amy Schumer'

Amy Schumer is not afraid to take on serious topics in her comedy.

The 33-year-old comedian skewered Bill Cosby on Tuesday's Inside Amy Schumer during a sketch titled "Court of Public Opinion: The Trial of Bill Cosby."

In the clip, Schumer plays Bill Cosby's defense attorney, who, rather than focusing on the comedian's many sexual assault accusers, asks the jury to remember Cosby in a more comfortable way -- as Cliff Huxtable on the long-running The Cosby Show.

"At this point, Bill Cosby probably can't get in any legal trouble," Amy's character says in the sketch. "That's not what this is about."

She continues, "This is about us not punishing ourselves for loving great comedy."

The underlying question in the comedy, of course, is whether Cosby's defenders are defending the now-disgraced comedian, or his beloved TV persona.

The sketch was carefully planned by Schumer and team, who said during a panel discussion at the Tribeca Film Festival, "I think we probably talked about this scene more than any other scene we’ve done."

With the MTV Movie Awards hosting gig, Inside Amy Schumer's awesome season, her upcoming movie Trainwreck, and her recent Bachelorette appearance, Amy Schumer has been pretty much killing it in 2015.
