Amy Schumer's New Sketch Show Is Fucking Hilarious

Comedian Amy Schumer's new sketch comedy show on Comedy Central, Inside Amy Schumer, is the best thing to hit the airwaves since The Golden Girls. Yes, THE The Golden Girls. That's how you know I'm serious.

The 31-year-old funny lady — perhaps best known for bit parts on 30 Rock and Girls — kills at calling out wack universal truths, and then taking it to the next level. As evidenced in the sketch above, the jokes come fast and furious — and they can cut to the bone, in the goofiest, most delightful way possible.

Not surprisingly, Schumer herself is a brilliant loon who is well-versed in recognizing society's quirks. This anecdote will make you fall in love with her:

“I say I graduated in 2003 from Towson, but that’s not actually true,” the 31-year-old New-York-born performer says in a recent interview. “I went to Towson and had the credits to graduate on time, but then I found out I needed to pay $200 to post these credits. And I was like, ‘What?’ And I was so enraged that you had to pay to post credits that I was like, ‘What an arbitrary, made-up thing.’ So, I didn’t pay the money.”

Right?? This woman. I like her.

It's her no-bullshit POV that makes a show filled with silly sketches into something special. This Crossbolt v. Butterface sketch is the perfect example of Schumer's perverse and insightful humor:

"But there's just a scrunchie in here?"

Marry me, Amy Schumer.

I'm still ambivalent about her. Some of her stuff is funny and makes a point, but there is some that's cliched, and some I found down right offensive (at one point she actually says "I used to sleep with Hispanic guys, but now I like consensual"..........what?).

I just want a lady comedian who is funny, and can be edgy without talking nonstop about sex and fucking people, particularly the ethnicity of those people she fucks. I don't need slightly more self aware Lisa Lampanelli.
