Overview: Amy Schumer is beautiful, obnoxious and absolutely hilarious. During her one hour stand-up at The Apollo for HBO, Amy dishes about dudes, dick and Hollywood divas.
If you loved Amy in Trainwreck, you need to watch her stand-up as soon as possible. Or, if you haven't watched her movie, you need to add that to your DVD collection too!
What I loved: I adore Amy Schumer. She makes me "LOL" every time I watch her on TV or online. She says what all women think, but are too afraid to say. She also seems to have a natural stage presence. She never seemed scripted or even like she had rehearsed her special. All her jokes and stories came out naturally like she was talking to her best friends.
She even makes a slight jab at Buffalo, but because the joke was funny, I felt proud instead of heated.
Don't worry guys, you'll be able to appreciate Amy's humor too. She spends the majority of her time on stage talking about sex and even mentions a few "classics" such as the Cleveland Steam and The Dolphin.
If you're looking for tasteful comedy, Amy Schumer is NOT your girl.
What I didn't: I look up to Amy in a weird and twisted way. She's fascinating. She speaks her mind regardless of who's listening and has a "IDGAF" attitude. However, I think she spent too much time bashing herself and her weight. I'm sure it was her way of making fun of the people who are so judgmental, but I think it would be more of a *screw you* if she showed the confidence most people wouldn't think she has because of society's harsh beauty standards.
You're beautiful Amy, just embrace it and give anyone who doubts it the big 'ol middle finger!
