“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
Amy Schumer's created a booty culture video to rule them all: Co-starring Amber Rose, Jemima Kirke, Amber Tamblyn, and Method Man, "Milk, Milk, Lemonade" is the most blatant reminder that butts poop we've seen recently—and it's hilarious. Combining tight outfits and seductive glances with images of melted fudge, Schumer reminds us of the ridiculousness of our ass-obsessed culture. 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).

Happy Friday BUSTies! The weekend is coming so we know there are tons of shows you need to catch up on, but before finishing up Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, here are a few stories you might have skipped this week:
1. Amy Schumer keeps it 100%, discussing the issue of not quite looking like Megan Fox or Kate Upton in a world where the fact that Beyonce may not have the skin of a newborn is considered news.
2. Looking for some Feminist swag to wear? Well we have 10 awesome Feminist buttons to add to your summer accessories collection. Oh yeah, and they are all under $3.
3. Read More
In an age when un-retouched pictures of beautiful women are often considered scandalous, it can be kind of hard to keep up your own self-esteem. Yes, Beyoncé’s skin may not be perfectly ***Flawless, but who among us is without an occasional blemish? Looking "normal" is treated more and more like a deformity than simply being a human being (cellulite, stretch marks and acne, oh my!) and nobody can express how ridiculous this is better than the fierce and funny Amy Schumer.

Well, the word at least. Sorry, was that baiting?
Brilliant friend of BUST Amy Schumer and the rest of the folks at her show, Inside Amy Schumer, made a stand against Comedy Central’s skewed codification system for dicks and pussies -- “dick” is vernacular, “pussy” is profane -- and they won.
The obscenely funny creator and titular star of Inside Amy Schumer, who cast a spell on BUST’s cover this April/May, joined the show’s head writer Jessi Klein and executive producer Dan Powell at New York Comedy Fest to debrief their war on words. Read More

To be completely honest, Joan Rivers was never my favorite comedienne. Her hard-hitting jokes, told mostly at the expense of famous others (when they weren’t at her own expense) were too sharp-tongued for my taste. I thought of Rivers as overly venomous, sometimes tactless, and largely inappropriate.
It wasn’t until I heard of her passing that I realized my latent admiration. In fact, it was the very dislike of her comedy that caused me to like her most; she didn’t care if you liked what she was saying, she was going to say it anyway. Read More

Stop what you're doing right now! Lena Dunham has just announced her book tour for her upcoming collection of essays, out September 30th, entitled "Not That Kind of Girl." Cue celebratory dance and requisite trips to Barnes and Nobles around the country. As someone with experience camping out in bookstores for midnight releases (I'm lookin' at you Harry Potter's four through seven) I can confidently say this reading and Q&A will rank amongst the top. Tina Fey's autographed "Bossy Pants" will have to share the rad female autobiographical shelf with Ms. Dunham's debut book. Read More

BUST cover woman Amy Schumer truly is the master of comedic timing. In the wake of Mother's Day, only she could come up with a sketch for tonight's new episode of Inside Amy Schumer that covers an innocent topic--the technological generation gap--with such fierce wit.
The sketch is as much about moms as it is technology. Schumer pinpoints all those wonderfully cringeworthy things moms do: touch your hair and clothes without your permission, ask for your help and then refuse to take it, and insist they have no clue how to do things you could swear you JUST saw them do.

Amy Schumer usually makes us laugh so hard we cry, but this time she's moved us to tears. At the Gloria Awards and Gala hosted by the Ms. Foundation for Women, the comedian showed off her usual sharp observational skills and witty storytelling in order to communicate a powerful message of self-esteem. She delves into a coming-of-age anecdote, detailing the relatable feeling of confidence and power draining away as she grew up into a woman increasingly valued only for her body. Read More
