“Inside Amy Schumer” is a fun addition to the recent Comedy Central renaissance. Did you lose Chappelle and Silverman? It doesn’t matter, as we’ve got new comedians with edgier YouTube style humor for you. Their sketches go viral and everyone likes that they have something new to say. Even though they’re all sharing the same narrative about what works and what doesn’t.
Schumer’s humor is incredibly hit and miss for me. Sometimes, Schumer kills me when she’s building high concept pieces. Then she starts dragging that Jezebel style corpse through the mud and mining jokes like a wannabe Rita Rudner. I don’t want to sell Schumer short, as she can really knock the jokes out of the park when the time arrives. Unfortunately, you’ve got to shuffle through a ton of material that centers on the concept that women got it rough. Ok, what else?
The DVD comes with unaired sketches, featurettes and stand-up from the first two seasons as the special features. The A/V Quality is sharp, but it demanded an HD release. The transfer shows small amounts of noise. The Dolby 5.1 track covers a better spread. If you’re a fan, you’re going to buy it.
