Watch Jake Gyllenhaal Catfish Amy Schumer in New Spoof Video

     May 26, 2016


Fans of Inside Amy Schumer can not get a sneak peek at one of the skits appearing on tonight’s episode, as Schumer turns her sites on the MTV reality juggernaut Catfish, along with a parody of its co-hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph (“the one with the gray hair and the other one”). Even if you haven’t watched Catfish (and you really should, it’s addictive even once you know the formula), there are still plenty of jokes to appeal to casual viewers, although I have to praise its hilarious specificity (“Am I going on an airplane?” “I hope it’s an overweight lesbian who can’t make eye contact!”)

THR debuted the clip earlier, which features Schumer’s character calling up the “Katfish” guys on Skype and saying that she thinks she’s being scammed by someone pretending to be Jake Gyllenhaal. Spoiler-not-spoiler, it is Gyllenhaal, who apparently loves ferrets (and gets angry really easily). There are many things to enjoy about the skit, but Gyllenhaal whipping that ferret around and shaking it (or a stuffed version, anyway) at Schumer for emphasis is hilarious. (Do any of you have pet ferrets? Can you confirm they smell like dicks?) Check it out below:

According to THR, Inside Amy Schumer’s fourth season will also feature appearances by Liam Neeson, Lena Dunham, Steve Buscemi, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Julianne Moore and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Katfish and the rest of the episode’s skits can be seen on Comedy Central when it debuts Thursday  at 10 p.m. ET (I need to catch up clearly because this Knick-inspired image below has me exceptionally intrigued!)
