Amy Schumer spoofs Soderbergh with The Knick Jr.

Posted on

Comedy Central

Ever thought The Knick could use some young blood? Or that Nick Jr. could use some spilled blood? If so, Amy Schumer has the parody video for you.

In The Knick Jr., Schumer reimagines Steven Soderbergh’s gritty turn-of-the-century hospital drama with a cast of rug rat surgeons — including a juvenile version of Clive Owen’s Dr. Thackery who’s hooked on Pixy Stix instead of cocaine.

Credited to executive producer Lil’ Stevie Soderbergh, the four-minute short has all the clashing egos, life-and-death drama, and historical intrigue of its grown-up counterpart, but with even more questionable medical treatment.

Watch the video above. Inside Amy Schumer airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
