Amy Schumer Shows Off Saturday Night Live Battle Wounds: 'This Is What Happens When You Repeatedly Run Into a Fake Airplane Door'

Amy Schumer is all banged-up.
The comedian, 34, took to Instagram on Sunday to show off the battle wounds she got while filming one of her Saturday Night Live sketches from her hosting gig in October – and, it turns out, comedy can be a little painful sometimes.
“This is what happens when you repeatedly run into a fake airplane door on @nbcsnl with @vanessabayer,” she captioned the photo.
As she snaps the picture in her bathroom mirror, Schumer is seen pulling her shirt off her right shoulder and exposing massive bruises running down her back.
But don’t worry, the pain was all in the name of a good laugh.
In a sketch titled “Delta Flight,” Schumer and SNL cast member Vanessa Bayer played two peppy flight attendants who find themselves fighting to stay inside the plane when the cabin doors suddenly swing open. As the two sing their catchy in-flight service song, they’re both thrown outside the plane, and struggle to get back in.
Schumer received rave reviews for her hosting gig, making headlines for her no-holds-barred opening monologue, in which she dished on everything from meeting Hillary Clinton to kind of dating Bradley Cooper.
“Am I dating Bradley Cooper?” Schumer, 34, mock-narrated for the audience, after recounting a conversation with the American Sniper star, 40, which went on and on without complaint. “I don’t know how Hollywood works, but I’m pretty sure that I’m dating Bradley Cooper.”
Other topics of discussion: the status of women in Hollywood today, Schumer’s most frequent Google searches and of course, the Kardashian family.
But not only is she revealing her bruises, she’s also revealing her latest fantasies with GQ‘s Men of the Year. And in true Schumer style, they are quite creative – and steamy.
“Keith Richards and I end up at a late-night party in Amsterdam where Prince, Cat Power, Wu-Tang Clan, and Ani DiFranco are all hanging out and playing music until dawn,” she describes of her fantasy with the musician. “We make out but just for a second.”
She even considers her fantasy with basketball player Steph Currey, who she admits she doesn’t know.
“I ask him who he is. He tells me – I think it’s basketball. He asks who I am. I tell him, Chelsea Handler,” she says. “Then we spoon and watch The Land Before Time. Why that? How about it’s none of your business what we do!!!”
But as for her maybe-boyfriend Cooper? That one you’ll just have to read for yourself.
