The scatological humor of Dave Chapelle rings loudly in Inside Amy Shumer. Yes the skits can be quite juvenile at times but this type of humor gets rescued when it offends. Fey and Poehler have something Amy doesn't - a network noose around their necks.
Amy is rapid fire and very very "blue". Welcome to today's culture. I laughed all the way through these DVD's but you have to ask who is Amy's target audience.
The show uses Paul Giamatti, Bridget Everett, Jon Glaser, and Janeane Garafalo brilliantly. Toilet humor has never been used so cleverly. Amy is a huge writing and acting force. She'll certainly have her detractors but the people have spoken. Season 2 episode "I wouldn't #*%# her" gets the Paul Mooney Award, "Nuff said.
Unfunny, underwhelming and definitely not smart- in fact it's just plain dumb. Not sure why this is even semi-popular with such a lack of talent on display- because the dumbing down of culture has been successful?
Not tummy-clutching. but pleasant enough chuckle-filled. Schumer has good timing and a smooth delivery.
Relentless raunchiness can be tiring humour, although there were inventive skits.
I love her stand up, but this was disappointing. I don't think I laughed at all.
This might be hilarious to someone younger than 40. A two hour program yielded about 3 laughs to this old soul who had just about heard them all.
If you like sketch comedy with a feminist twist, you'll enjoy "Inside Amy Schumer." The content is very sexual in nature, so if that's not your cup of tea, you might not like it. She has a knack for working social commentary into her comedy routine, while delivering jokes with wit and humor. I was fond of the street interviews and one-on-one interviews she conducted with a dominatrix, a 106-year-old woman, a Christian camp counselor, and a phone sex operator.
If you're looking for something that's funny but also smart - this is it! Amy is the best, just the best.
Having been underwhelmed with Amy Schumer's standup material before, I was also a bit let down here as well. Think "female sex comic" persona, and here you have it. I don't mind it if I know what "kind" of punchline is coming (ex: Rules of Engagement tv series), but here, the vast majority of punchlines were expected ones. FYI, when done well, "sex comedy" is hilarious.
irreverent honest and funny!
