Amy Schumer’s take-no-prisoners brand of humor has tackled Hollywood’s double standards, ageism, and rape culture. Now’s she’s got her sights set on the sexualization of children via beauty pageants.

The killing-it comedienne tells EW the two-part sketch premiering tonight on Inside Amy Schumer has been a long-time dream of hers, explaining, “It’s honestly something I’ve been trying to make happen for three years. I wrote this sketch the first season. It just seemed like it would be such a pain in the ass to shoot—the sets, the production, the children. But then this turned into the year we’re just living all our dreams, so I was like, let’s do it.”

An on-point parody of the reality TV-show Toddlers and Tiaras, “Babies & Bustiers” naturally includes Schumer as a hyper wanna-be princess, Jennifer Coolidge as a psycho stagemom, and a nipslip at the Little Miss Hot as Balls Pageant.

Kristy Puchko will now say “Hit it hit it hit hit it pivot pivot pivot” as a mantra to help her become her best self.
