  My favorite new phenomenon is the book of essays by female comedians. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say my life would be empty without them. I’ve read Tina Fey’s Bossypants more times than I can count, I practically put my life on hold when Amy Poehler’s Yes Please came out, and Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) has gotten me through several hard times. So last week, when it was announced that the newest it-girl comedian Amy Schumer got a multimillion-dollar book deal with Simon & Schuster, I kind of lost it. Read More
Over recent years the media has been buzzing about the lovely and talented Emma Thompson, as she graces red carpets and interviews alike with her heart on her sleeve and a wit that won’t quit. Winner of multiple Academy Awards and Oscars, this vivacious actress has become known for her talent as well as her innate ability to speak her mind in the most unapologetic way that can only be described as awesome. One thing she is not afraid to speak on: feminism. “I’ve been a card-carrying, radical feminist since I was 19,” she says. Read More
Ever since Hooters opened, many have wished for a male version of the popular chain restaurant. Amy Schumer’s hilarious “Lunch at O’Nutters” skit further explored this desire for a male Hooters. Finally, someone has answered those prayers and opened Tallywackers in Dallas, Texas. Young, muscular men walk around the restaurant serving food in tiny shorts and tank tops. The tank tops are required because of food safety laws, but that doesn't mean you won't see plenty of bare chests. The waiters are constantly ripping off their shirts for photo-ops and birthday wishes. Read More
Most of us grew up watching Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and Sleeping Beauty, all of which, unfortunately, manipulate girls into thinking that marrying a prince and becoming a princess is the most surefire way to obtain a happily ever after. Well, Amy Schumer is here to set the record straight. Get More: Comedy Central,Funny Videos,Funny TV Shows In her latest Inside Amy Schumer sketch, Amy, with the help of Tim Gunn as Willenby, the royal attaché, goes from “rancid peasant girl” to royalty in a Disney-esque flash.

It was an idyllic afternoon in Central Park. Sun streaming through the trees overhead, Joseph Turnage and Brandon Moore were wrapped in a loving embrace, posing during an engagement photo shoot with photographer Alisha Siegel. But then, without warning, a vaguely sweaty figure enters the frame – none other than beloved comedian/noted photobombing legend/prank master general Amy Schumer. Jogging nearby, Schumer shrieked upon spotting the couple and immediately asked to join. Read More
Inside Amy Schumer has been pumping out material that manages to make you laugh and make you think at the same time. The newest skit is no exception. If TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras has taught us anything, it’s that the world of child beauty pageants is not as pretty as the kids competing in it are made to be. Amy Schumer parodies the show with her own edition: Babies and Bustiers. Schumer stars as Amy Mayweather Sherman, a not so little (thanks to Fetal Red Bull Syndrome) girl who’s determined to win the title of Little Miss Hot as Balls. Read More
Amy Schumer killed it again in episode two of Inside Amy Schumer's third season, with the satirical music video and social media movement “Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup.”   The song opens with adoring lines reminiscent of boy-band pop sensations like One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful,” insisting that the Schumer doesn’t “need” makeup.

Our love for Amy Schumer is no secret, but we almost exploded when the comedienne, Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Patricia Arquette all appeared together on Inside Amy Schumer’s first episode of her third season last night. In the skit, Schumer runs into the glamorous trio as they are celebrating Julia’s “Last Fuckable Day”—a day on any female celebrity’s imminent horizon. Read More
“I’m rich now,” Amy Schumer says, onstage at the Hollywood Improv, to a Saturday-night crowd. “I go to the waxing places that change the paper.” The 32-year-old comedian isn’t actually that wealthy, but it seems appropriate that she would address her newfound notoriety with a joke. After nearly a decade working the stage as a standup, Schumer now stars on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, a stunningly subversive sketch show she created. Read More
  Getting antsy for the third season of Inside Amy Schumer to premiere on Comedy Central? Us too. It may be less than two weeks away (Tuesday, April 21 at 10:30 pm), but we're still eager for an Amy fix in the meantime. Luckily, the former BUST cover girl has plenty of material to hold us over: The first two seasons of her show were released on DVD this past Tuesday, and she'll be hosting the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday night (April 12).
