Amy Schumer skewers “Toddlers and Tiaras” in new sketch

The sketch sees Schumer send up the flaming hot mess that is TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras, a show that quite literally depicts small children getting spray-tanned while guzzling energy drinks. Schumer plays Amy Merryweather Sherman, a five-year-old with “Fetal Red Bull Syndrome” who is competing in the “Little Miss Hot as Balls” pageant.
