Be­cause ev­ery­body needs a laugh (and a lower back tat­too)

Toronto Life - - Culture -

Amy Schumer con­quered Hol­ly­wood by skew­er­ing it, us­ing raunchy satire with an overtly fem­i­nist twist that’s funny and fresh. The world can’t get enough: this year, the co­me­dian re­leased her fierce mem­oir, The Girl With the Lower Back Tat­too; she’s star­ring in the up­com­ing army drama Thank You for Your Ser­vice; and she got her sketch show, In­side Amy Schumer—on which she’s played a foot­ball coach’s ditzy, drunk wife and the POTUS on her pe­riod—re­newed for a fifth sea­son. On the stand-up stage she riffs on awk­ward sex and en­ter­tain­ment-in­dus­try misog­yny. She’s shame­less, con­fi­dent, con­fronta­tional and happy to be loathed, as long as it gets a laugh.
