Amy Schumer Spoofs Honey Boo Boo and Toddlers & Tiaras With Babies & Bustiers

If you like child pageant shows and enjoyed The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, steel yourself, because this clip from Inside Amy Schumer combines both. “I was put on this green earth to win pageants and spread the word of the Almighty,” says Amy Schumer, in character as Amy Merryweather Sherman, a 6-year-old child pageant star bravely battling “Fetal Red Bull Syndrome,” which makes her look much older than she is. Schumer, with her round cheeks and wide blue eyes, is a dead ringer for Honey Boo Boo. And while Jennifer Coolidge, who plays Amy’s mother, Cleopatricia, doesn’t really resemble Mama June, they seem to have a lot in common. “If God didn’t want this for my daughter, then why the Hell did he make her so friggin’ attractive?” Coolidge asks. True to form, Schumer’s parody starts out innocently enough, but ends on a raunchy note.
