Amy Schumer Hilariously Illustrates How Badly Women Are At Receiving Compliments
God bless her.
Have you been watching the new Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer? I haven’t, but after watching the sketch above, I’m adding it to my now-lean DVR queue.
In the clip, Amy Schumer and a gaggle of pals (including Saturday Night Live‘s Abby Elliott) exchange compliments on everything from clothing items to job promotions to pregnancy news, but each is, uh, incapable of accepting the praise graciously. The sketch is hilarious because it absurdly illustrates something that is totally true — by and large, many women have a hard time accepting compliments without at least disparaging themselves in some way first.
