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
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).

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.
