AceShowbiz - Amy Schumer returned to "Saturday Night Live" on May 12 following her October 2015 debut. For her monologue, the "I Feel Pretty" star ditched politics and talked about her marriage instead. Donning a black ensemble, the comedian talked about a range of things, including the "worthless" proposal from her now-husband, the struggle being a bridesmaid in her 30s and her "aging cleavage."
"The way that my now-husband proposed was so worthless," she said. "It was such a dumb proposal. It was the morning I was still asleep, he threw the box and said, 'I got you this.' " Schumer, however, went on saying that was a realistic proposal, adding, "I feel like in movies and TV shows, it's always a guy getting down on one knee and the girl was always like shocked."
That night's episode also celebrated Mother's Day through its cold open. It saw the cast members bringing their real-life mothers to express their gratitudes as well as the show's biggest gripes, all the politics and Donald Trump jokes.
The show also featured a funny skit of "Sex in the City" and "The Handmaid's Tale" mash-up. Schumer was joined by Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant. "As I waited for the girls in downtown Gilead, I was feeling like an uptown Gal-ead," Schumer, who donned the Hulu show's signature red robe and bonnet, said in Carrie Bradshaw's signature inner-monologue style. "And I couldn't help but wonder, 'Are women allowed to do anything anymore?' "
The cold open was not the only skit honoring Mother's Day as Schumer was later seen in a skit titled "The Day You Were Born". Playing a mother, Schumer was treated to a Mother's Day breakfast in bed by her young son, who asks her about the day he was born. She told her son, "It was amazing," as a flashback saw her crying in pain at the hospital.
She continued saying, "I had a big smile on my face the whole time," although the flashback showed the exact opposite of it. The sketch concluded with a card that read, "To all the moms in the world, thanks for pretending it was easy."
Meanwhile, Colin Jost opened the Weekend Update with the best joke of the night. "Hunter College has announced they will give an honorary degree to actor Vin Diesel. Diesel says he can't wait to find out whether the degree is in Fahrenheit or Celsius," he said. Co-anchor Michael Che also presented his best joke, saying, "Police at Yale University interrogated a black graduate student after a white student reported her for sleeping in the common room. So if you're black and you go to Yale: Stay woke."
That night's Weekend Update also featured a special cameo from Melissa McCarthy. She played Che's very proud stepmom.
