Amy Schumer gained attention with her stint on Last Comic Standing, but she gathered notoriety with her Comedy Central roasts, which displayed her in-your-face personality and willingness to shock with vulgarity and politically incorrect punch lines. Cutting only builds that persona even further, as Schumer tackles sex, race, religion, and any other hot-button topic with her signature raunchiness. But while the content is confrontational, her style isn't; she comes across as upbeat and somewhat ditzy - almost as if she's unaware of what she's saying - which causes a disarmingly brilliant disconnect, making her material even more surprising and funny.
Fast-rising comic Amy Schumer talks straight and dirty about sex, religion, and everything else taboo. Wrong in every way, her latest album, Cutting, is a hilarious look inside the twisted mind of one of the funniest comedians working today.

Amy is genius, hilarious and fresh. As a lady, I totally appreciate her vulgarity and crassness, done with a sexy wink.
This was bad. It was a series of ba-dump-bump jokes where you could have a computer write all the jokes if you input the premise: The comic makes a comment about sex or sexual stereotypes, waits a beat, and then adds a zinger that portrays her as basically being the same as a scumbag guy — only she's a woman saying these things so that makes it funny, get it? If only. If you like Lisa Lampanelli, you'll probably like this. But I found it boring and tedious.
very entertaining and enjoying. Comedy is real and gets you laughing for no apparent reason
"A real find"
Can't believe I've never heard of Amy Schumer before, she's great. If you like your standup sarcastic, clever and near the knuckle this is for you.
