Amy Schumer reveals another 2022 Oscars joke 'THAT GOT THE AXE!' at 'Netflix Is A Joke' fest
Comedian Amy Schumer has revealed another alleged joke she was prohibited from telling at the 2022 Academy Awards. In March, the comedian co-hosted the 94th annual Academy Awards ceremony alongside Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes. Schumer recounted the jokes that the Oscars "did say no" to during a stand-up set at the 'Netflix Is a Joke' event.
The joke had her spouse practicing oral sex while combining names from Oscar-nominated films such as 'Nightmare Alley' and 'House of Gucci'. The joke refers to many films that were nominated for Oscars during the event. “My husband was going down on me,” she said, in a clip shared by the streaming service on social media. “Or as he calls it, Squid Game. So, he’s in my Nightmare Alley. My House of Gucci. And I say, ‘C’mon C’mon.’ He goes Tick, tick... BOOM! He ‘Bels fast’. I say, ‘get off my Dune’ and that’s how our son was born," she said.

Amy Schumer, a comedian, was one of the 94th Annual Academy Awards' co-hosts. As co-host, she not only kept the audience laughing with her quips, but she also had a front-row seat to the drama that erupted when Will Smith slammed Chris Rock on the stage. Amy dragged several celebs and their films into her tirade at the Academy Awards.
During her Netflix performance, she revealed that she had planned the Oscars' routine but had been told to cut a number of gags. She said, "Don’t Look Up is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun. I wasn’t allowed to say any of that, but you can just come up and (slap) someone."
Her joke related to the death of the director of photography Halyna Hutchins also clearly did not go down well. The 40-year-old comic was blasted online for making an offensive joke about Alec Baldwin's fatal gunshot that killed Hutchins. After the joke was widely publicized, Schumer responded on social media with some clarity. "I also was never going to say the Alec Baldwin joke at the Oscars. But I am saying anything I want at my live shows," Schumer said.
