Amy Schumer's sister, who also happens to be a producer on Inside Amy Schumer, is a huge fan of Hamilton ... so, of course, Schumer has a new skit out in which she writes her own "hip-hopera," Betsy Ross. Hamiilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda guest stars in the spot, which features the song, "I Am Not Throwing Away My Mop."
