Stand up comedian Amy Schumer was on The Graham Norton Show on Friday night, where she explained why she fell in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
According to Schumer, it was a prank. A prank she pulled because, as she was being interviewed on the red carpet at the event for Time’s 100 Most Influential People (Schumer is one of them), the interviewer started to look behind her when someone ‘more important’ showed up. The people ‘more important’, of course, were Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. At least according to the news media.
So Amy Schumer decided, wouldn’t it be funny to fall in front of them to get the attention off them. And she did. Right on the red carpet.
Of course, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West being who they are didn’t crack a smile. In fact, other than stepping around her, all they did was walk away.
As Graham himself said about Kanye, “You could have been a drowning child. He was just walking”.

God, I love Amy Schumer.
