The stand-up comedian, best known for her outspoken personality and undiluted sense of humor, recently pulled a priceless prank on the TV host.
On Thursday, March 24, a sneak peek for an upcoming episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” was released on YouTube, where Schumer appeared days before hosting the Oscars.
Amy Schumer Surprises Ellen DeGeneres By Rocking Matching Outfits
Schumer made a dramatic entrance on DeGeneres’s self-titled talk show by showing up in the same outfit as the renowned TV host.
Sporting a white bomber jacket worn over a white long-sleeved shirt, jeans, and Nike sneakers, the 40-year-old comedian resembled the “Seriously…I’m Kidding” author’s long-lost twin, especially with matching blonde hairstyles.
The “I Feel Pretty” actress sent the audience into uncontrollable laughter as she sashayed onto the stage before dropping some exciting moves to the background music.
Like a good host, DeGeneres happily joined her guest in a good old-fashioned hoedown that was surprisingly in sync.
Following their fun groove, the pair took a seat, and the 64-year-old entertainer finally asked the buzzing question on everyone’s mind, “How did this happen?”
Without missing a beat, the stand-up comedian jokingly implied that she assumed the plan was to have her take over the 30-time Emmys winner’s job once the show’s final season ended. In her words:
“Am I not taking over the show? I was so confused, cause they invited me, and I know you’re kind of wrapping things up, so I thought I was going to become you and take over the show.”
The TV producer didn’t mind having the mother-of-one as her replacement, stating that they looked alike. Upon hearing this comment, the “Trainwreck” star suggested the duo switch seats.
Playing the part, the “Last Comic Standing” alum pretended to be the host, waving at the audience and crossing her legs like DeGeneres.
After having a good laugh, Schumer declared the “bit” was over while taking off the wig and white bomber jacket as she returned to the guest’s seat.
Once the pair were back in their correct spots, the conversation switched to the “Inside Amy Schumer” star’s hosting duties at this year’s Oscars, where Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall would join the actress.
Regarding the upcoming event, the 20 People’s Choice Awards winner pointed out that the show was filmed ahead of the prestigious award ceremony, meaning the Oscars would be over when the episode aired.
On that note, the Comedy Central alum confessed that by that time, she could be”freshly canceled” for giving an inappropriate statement during the Academy Awards.
Surprised, the host asked if she planned on doing anything “edgy” that would possibly end her career and the stand-up personality replied:
“That’s the problem. It’s not that I make a plan, it’s just I have no impulse control, and so, it’s like I think it and then it’s too late and then I’m you know, I’m over.”
DeGeneres, who hosted the Oscars in 2014, asked if the “Snatched” star was nervous to host the 94th annual Academy Awards, but the comedian confidently stated that she was ready.
The “Finding Nemo” voice actress then advised the TV personality to have fun as she would know almost everyone in the audience, which lessened the pressure of being perfect.

As previously reported by The Blast, the upcoming Oscars ceremony on Sunday, March 27, shall be hosted by three women; Schumer, Hall, and Sykes.
These talented women would be hosting the prestigious event for the first time, scheduled to air live on ABC at 8 PM ET.
According to producer Will Packer, this year’s theme revolved around “uniting movie lovers” with the help of “three of the most dynamic, hilarious women with very different comedic styles.”
Craig Erwich, President of Hulu Originals and ABC Entertainment, shared similar sentiments by praising the dynamic trio as “comedy powerhouses.”
In a joint statement, the hosts assured fans that they would deliver a fun-filled night while making history as the first female trio to host the Academy Awards.
Like Schumer, Hall and Sykes were big names in the industry, best known for their exceptional comedic gifts and acting skills.
