Because Aaron Sorkin has a distinct style, he’s an easy target for parody. However, that doesn’t mean parodying him is easy. There’s still a cadence, a tone, and a personality to mimic, and nailing down those elements takes a sharp comedic mind. Enter Amy Schumer, who’s probably about to break out in a big way. She’s the writer and star of the upcoming Judd Apatow film, Trainwreck, and she currently has a series on Comedy Central entitled Inside Amy Schumer. On the latest episode, she did a glorious parody of The Newsroom by resetting it in a fast food joint. The results are hilarious. It’s also great to see Josh Charles, who starred on Sorkin’s Sports Night, lampooning the kind of role he once played for real.
