Amy Schumer is a gift from the comedy gods...

Comedian Amy Schumer, star of ''Inside Amy Schumer'', plays Two Truths and a Lie

TRUTH: Amy Schumer stars on a very funny Comedy Central sketch show titled Inside Amy Schumer. TRUTH: The sweet- and-sour, saucy comedian, 31, is unflinchingly honest when riffing on everything from sex to dating to friendship to sexting. LIE: Amy knows her boundaries and would never mine comedy from delicate topics like rape, AIDS, race, and hard-core porn. To tease the upcoming action on her show — which airs new episodes through its July 2 finale — Schumer indulged us in the classic game Two Truths and a Lie. See if you can guess which one of the following three sketches she unspools is totally bogus. (Of course, all three are truly wrong, but the right answer is at the bottom of the page.)

SKETCH NO. 1

''I throw my own gang bang in the name of feminism. The idea is that women are not objects — I'm choosing to be objectified — so I'm taking control. When I actually see the guys, I get overwhelmed and I totally bail.''

SKETCH NO. 2

''I find all this evidence that my boyfriend has been sleeping with a clown, and I become suspicious. I find these clown panties, and we wind up looking at the security footage, and it's him getting out of a clown car with these beautiful clowns.''

SKETCH NO. 3

''I'm slinging crack rock and meet my demise at the hands of Michael K. Williams — Omar from The Wire — in the most epic death scene since the end of Game of Thrones season 1.''

SKETCH NO. 3 IS THE LIE.
