Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers reunited on Late Night With Seth Meyers in a new ‘Really?!’ comedy skit on Wednesday night.

Amy Poehler And Seth Meyers Hilarious ‘Really!?’ Skit

Meyers introduced the segment by telling the audience about the Women’s World Cup and Sports Illustrated editor Mark Mravic’s tweet about editor Andy Benoit not finding women’s soccer worth watching. Meyers then read aloud Benoit’s latest tweet saying, “Not women’s soccer… women’s sports in general not worth watching.”

Poehler started off the skit with, “Really? Andy Benoit… I think a lot of people would love to watch you say that to Serena Williams really!”

To emphasize the point further Meyers shows a clip of the fantastic goal from the Norway vs. England women’s soccer game. “Now here is a sports moment you would apparently rather watch,” Meyers said as he then showed a boring clip of a golf player missing his hole.

Poehler hilariously pointed out the irony of Benoit’s sexist remarks. “I’m not surprised you work for Sports Illustrated, you guys put out a Swimsuit Issue every year dedicated entirely to women who aren’t in sports—unless you think that it’s a sport to cover both boobs with one arm!”

The audience hit the roof with laughs and applause after Poehler’s comments, while Meyers got in on the action by imitating a sports commentator. “Here she comes — she’s walking down the beach, bikini top is off, but her arms are out and she’s done it. She has covered both nipples!,” he said.

The former SNL duo ended their Benoit rant by highlighting what should really be considered boring. “If you wanna attack somebody for playing soccer how about children? Now that is boring to watch,” Meyers shouted.

Take a look at the skit for yourself. It’s beyond funny — really!
