  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

The two Schumers presented the proposed legislation at a news conference Monday. The legislation would reward states that submit information to the background-check system and penalize states that don't comply. "These shootings have got to stop. Read More
Last week, Amy Schumer met with two Australian radio hosts, Matt Tilley and Jane Hall of KIIS 101.1, to discuss her new movie, Trainwreck. And a train wreck is exactly what happened. Matt Tilley asked a few questions that Schumer was not happy about—and understandably so. Unsurprisingly, Schumer didn’t put up with his bullshit. After discussing the costumes in the movie, Tilley asked, “Do you have the word ‘skanky’ in America?” Schumer cleverly responded, “We do have that word. Read More
For weeks following the announcement that Jon Stewart would be leaving The Daily Show, people speculated about who would be the next host.

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
