Amy Schumer‘s latest sketch gives some pithy insight into how the comedian really feels about sitcom humor.

In the sketch, Schumer plays up the stale stereotypes often seen in sitcoms, such as racial tropes and gag humor, but finds that her jokes aren’t resonating with the live studio audience, who refuses to laugh at her lines, despite the fact that they follow the “sitcom model.”

Her flatlining jokes continue until Schumer can’t stand it anymore and breaks the fourth wall to confront the audience, telling them “this show is not funny! It’s disgusting!”— but is apprehended by a Big Brother-esque unit from the powers that be, who remove her and replace her with multiple other actresses who can spout her lines instead.

Watch the full clip above.
