When it comes to humor I’m more on the safe side. I’ve seen a few bits from Amy Schumer and they were enough for me to get the “I’m too old for this” vibe. I was feeling like a huge prude and wanted to grab my pearls and walk away in disgust. But she’s a truth teller, in very honest, basic words and it is what it is. And, for the most part, it’s hilarious! Recently my husband and I saw Trainwreck (walk! don’t run! so good!) and I’m appreciating Amy’s talents and glad I pushed through my prudishness – is that a word? – to see this movie.
Michael Ian Black, actor/comedian who I first saw on the MTV show “The State” back in the early ’90’s, is adding to his repertoire by including Interviewer on his list of accomplishments. He currently has an audioshow “How To Be Amazing”. In this episode, Michael sits down with his friend and fellow comedian Amy Schumer to discuss her years as a stand-up, her hit Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer, and her new movie Trainwreck, her film with Judd Apatow.
Check out the brief clip below:
In this in-depth interview show, Black takes listeners into the minds of some of today’s most fascinating celebrities and newsmakers to discuss the process of how they became, well, amazing. Black’s trademark wit and natural inquisitiveness offers a behind-the-scenes viewpoint, along with laugh-out-loud humor and valuable advice from guests who are at the top of their game. Looking through the list of interviews I really want to check out Megan Mullally (Karen from Will & Grace) and Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat Pray Love fame).
So, what do you think of Amy Schumer’s humor? Is she your cup of tea? Have you seen the movie Trainwreck? If so, what did you think? This isn’t your momma’s rom-com!
