Inside Amy Schumer: The Complete Series
review by Bobby Blakey
Amy Schumer took entertainment by storm with a string of hit movies and stand up specials, but it was her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer that might have got her the most exposure. The show unleashed her brand of comedy for four outrageously funny seasons. Now Paramount and Comedy Central are bringing the entire series home in on complete set.
If you have never seen the series it follows Amy Schumer as she switches from sketches, doing stand-up, to interviewing people on the street and people of interest usually following a certain theme. Each seasons offers up laughs like only she can. I love the format of this series with each episode kind of having a theme for her to navigate through, but still allowing them to create all sorts of nonsense. I have been a fan of Schumer’s long before she got this show and I have always loved that she approaches this show with a no holds barred attitude and nothing is off limits.
Like any skit comedy show not every moment works, but it maintains one of the funniest shows of its kind. Schumer brings some fun sketches to life here, but it’s the injected moments in between that help to make it stand out. I love the interviews with random people that are not so much celebrities, but real life people most of the time. The way she just has a conversation with them about some often heavy topics is a breath of fresh
air from the usual forced interviews of most shows.
Add to the mix all of the hilariously over the top sketches and you have yet another laugh out loud series that not only holds up but will no doubt deliver the laughs for years to come. Obviously if you are not a fan of Schumer then you will no doubt probably avoid this show anyway, but if you are then you will never have to miss an episode again thanks to this great series and the announced possible new special episodes coming to Paramount+.
