Inside Amy Schumer Season 4
review by Bobby Blakey
Outside of her stand-up and film career Amy Schumer has been knocking it out of the park with her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer. Now Comedy Central and Paramount are bringing the latest season home with Inside Amy Schumer: Season 4 on DVD.
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. Much like her previous seasons this one if filled with a lot of the same 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 season of the series. Obviously if you are not a fan of Schumer then you will no doubt probably avoid this show anyway, but if you are then make sure to not miss a single episode. This release not only includes all 11 episodes of the season and guest stars including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Liam Neeson and Andy Cohen as well as bonus content including outtakes and a featurette that takes you inside the writers room.
