Amy Schumer Loves Getting Picked-Up

By James Lang

Comedy Central has renewed Amy Schumer’s hit TV show, Inside Amy Schumer, for a fifth season in a row. This is exciting news for fans of Amy’s work and serves as the perfect start to a new year, after a 2015 that was so full of wins for the comedian from New York City.

Last year Schumer enjoyed critical acclaim for her movie Trainwreck, HBO’s Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo and the fourth season of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer.

What Schumer has proved is that modern television isn’t about getting the highest ratings. It’s about who can become the most viral online. Jimmy Fallon rocketed the ratings of The Late Show by focusing on cleverly curated skits that could be uploaded later to YouTube. Schumer is clearly reading from the same playbook. read more

Also, the article accused the comedian of suggesting that the Mexicans or other men of color are actually born as natural rapists. It also added that while churches are being burned, the black families bury their dead, death threats are sent to black women pastors in churches and KKK plans rallies in South Carolina, all that Schumer does is play with race, with the laughter coming from white people alone. read more
