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