Amy Schumer in her own words (audio)
The raunchy, hilarious, down to earth comedian Amy Schumer just released her latest stand-up special, Mostly Sex Stuff on DVD (via Comedy Central). Just a few weeks before the premiere of her new TV show, Inside Amy Schumer which premieres on April 30th.
It’s a laugh-your-ass-off type of special and if you aren’t familiar with Amy, well… you’re missing out on the best female comedians in the scene. She delivers a hurricane force of words and stories that will make any audience squirm as she holds nothing back in her delivery and style.
Her cute looks can be deceiving as Amy always takes the audience on fun magical rides through stories such as struggles of the female gender and how it sucks to questioning why the males enjoy certain sexual activities. Her sweet delivery and innocent tone keeps audiences hooked for her raw humor about anything and everything sexual.
Amy combines sexual references with everyday activities such as having a “mid abortion” during yoga or stumbling around looking for a towel after what seemed to be a slime session from the gameshow Double Dare. Her topics don’t stray far from the S-E-X topic yet why should they… does anything else really matter in the world?
If you are not getting any action in the bedroom, listen to Amy’s strategies for releasing some steam and unwarranted frustrations. We caught up with Amy just days before she was to record Mostly Sex Stuff at Just For Laughs Chicago and she revealed her approach to recording the new special. She told us what was up in her own words.
When it comes to marketing yourself, Amy is a smart lady who knows how the system works. She is an upfront, honest and likable person who we deeply respect. We especially enjoyed her talking so openly about her strategies for the new recording session.
One final thing we love about Amy is her willingness and strength to interact with audiences. She remains in control of the stage by being assertive and honest with the crowd. When we saw her perform in Chicago we witnessed an audience member cross the line by taking a picture of Amy’s private parts. Amy doesn’t take shit from anyone, especially a drunken ditz in the front row. Listen to her input about crowd interactions and how she handles stupid people.
Mostly Sex Stuff is in stores now. Do yourself a favor and pick up the DVD. Amy is also on the road this Spring on her Inside Amy Schumer the Live Tour.
