Amy Schumer on Pranking Kim and Kanye: 'I Think Falling is Funny'

Last night Amy Schumer talked to British late-night host Graham Norton about her brilliant plan to prank Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the red carpet: “All the reporters were going crazy and it was Kim and Kanye, just standing there, owning it, being short and important. And I think falling is the funniest thing, so I took a dive in front of them.” If you remember, Kim smiled for about a second while Kanye remained expressionless. But, Schumer said neither were angry, and she apologized to them later. “Kanye was smiling at me, but as if you programmed a robot to smile,” Schumer said. [NYDN]
