Women in the News – International – Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer
Equal Parts Funny and Feminist
Amy SchumerBringing a fresh brand of feminist comedy to light, Amy Schumer is taking the world by storm and adding humor to some harsh realities. Schumer, who appeared as a contestant on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and Comedy Central’s “Reality Bites Back,” also secured roles in series such as “30 Rock,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and HBO’s “Girls” before landing her own show in 2013. “Inside Amy Schumer” features the sharp wit that put her on the map in the form of scripted vignettes, stand-up clips and street interviews. Although the show is proudly feminist, it still attracts a large male audience. Her sketches are broad and entice everyone to laugh, but some of her points require the perspective of what it’s like to be a woman today. Her comedic brilliance and firm feminist stance are a very welcome and long overdue addition to American television
