Amy Schumer: Patrick Stewart joke highlights British GQ Awards
Another awards show, another iconic moment from comedian Amy Schumer.
After an introduction from an admittedly nervous Florence Welch at Monday’s British GQ Men of the Year Awards, Schumer took to the stage to accept her Woman of the Year honor in front of a crowd of black tie attendees.
Though the event largely recognizes influential men in entertainment, Schumer was among several women who were honored with awards at the U.K. soiree, which was hosted at the Tate Modern by actor Stanley Tucci. After referencing her acceptance speech at the 2015 Glamour Women of the Year awards, the recording of which she didn’t think was being publicly distributed as she joked she was “160 pounds” and could “catch a d—” whenever she wanted, Schumer set her sights on an unsuspecting target (and fellow ceremony attendee): Patrick Stewart
“I want you guys to know that a lot of the things you hear up here tonight will just be lies. People will try and say the right things so that you like them or they can get more work. But, I want you to go home knowing this is the truth,” she said. “Patrick Stewart has c-m all over my t-ts. More times than even he remembers.”
The audience erupted with laughter.
“Michael Caine, don’t look away. Look at me, sir. Sir!” she continued. “Please make eye contact with me… I’m never going to be invited back here, so let’s just kind of embrace this moment.”
Elaborating on the sex act, Schumer continued in graphic detail, joking about making a “shelf” so “it doesn’t fall.”
“It’s the saddest shelf in the world,” she said. “I just went to the Anne Frank house and I can safely still say it’s the saddest shelf in the world.”
Stewart, a three-time Golden Globe-nominated actor, didn’t seem to take the joke to heart, as he was later seen posing for photos with Schumer and Ricky Gervais after the ceremony ended.
