Hamilton is one of the biggest musicals to rule pop culture (good luck trying to get a ticket), and Amy Schumer has decided to get in on the action—well, kind of. Ahead of the fourth season premiere of Inside Amy Schumer on April 21, the comedienne pitched her own Hamilton-influenced show.

In the LOL-filled Comedy Central sketch, Schumer explains her "Betsy Ross" hip-hopera idea to the musical's creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Unfortunately, he is not at all impressed as she performs tunes inspired by RihannaNellyDrake and Taylor SwiftThe RootsQuestlove, who seems to be completely over it, also makes an appearance.

Like many of us, Amy Schumer is a big fan of HamiltonLast month, she reportedly left a $1,000 tip at the bar while enjoying the show with her family. Watch the Inside Amy Schumer sketch below, and click here to flip through our round-up of this year's biggest TV premieres.
