Amy Schumer

Media Title

Don Rickles. Andrew Dice Clay. Lisa Lampanelli. Entertainment history knows them as the leading shock comics of their respective day, each with careers chock full of enough dirty jokes to choke a nun. While many wannabe-comedians aspire to reach the level of their derisively funny counterparts, precious few have managed to fill those pairs of clown shoes. Now, Amy Schumer has joined this pantheon of irreverent hilarity, her girl-next-door looks belying her knack for the particularly profane.

A native New Yorker, Schumer started working on her comedic stripes early by being voted “Class Clown” and “Teacher’s Worst Nightmare” in high school, later honing her skills at Towson University and the William Esper Studio in New York City. Appearances on NBC’s Last Comic Standing led to stints on 30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm and a Comedy Central Presents special of her own, and the comedienne’s star began to climb. But it wasn’t until the Comedy Central roasts of Charlie Sheen and Roseanne Barr—after Schumer’s relentless assaults on both the roastees and some roasters—that she began to turn heads. An hour-long 2012 special, Amy Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff, set the stage for last year’s Inside Amy Schumer, an entire sketch show hosted by—and, of course, featuring—the funnygirl herself.  Its new season, by the way, premieres on April Fool’s Day. How apropos. // KENNEDY ALLEN
