The last time we caught up with Amy Schumer, the comedian told us some of her funniest stories from the road. We got a chance to talk to her at Caroline's comedy club in New York, where she's performing this weekend, and she made us blush with her New Year resolution, how she spent her holiday, and what she thinks of Anthony Weiner.
We've gone on record as trying to end the boring "are women funny?" debate, and few comedians prove why better than Schumer. The minute the New York-bred comedian takes the stage, as she is doing this weekend at the venerable Caroline's, audiences would be foolish to question whether gender has anything to do with why they're laughing so damn hard.
If you're unfamiliar with Schumer, we doubt it will stay that way for long. After breaking onto the national scene in 2006 on "Last Comic Standing," she raised her profile significantly with a set on the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen (you may remember her controversial joke about deceased "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn). This year, she released her debut album, "Cutting," which was one of our top 11 comedy albums of the year.
This year, she'll be at Sundance for the Parker Posey film "Price Check," and will be on the Adult Swim show "Delocated." She'll also have a small part in "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," which features a cast of comedy favorites like Steve Carell and Patton Oswalt.
We highly encourage you to check out Amy at Caroline's this weekend. Her comedy is filthy, sweet, psychotic and innocent all at once. You can also visit her website, amyschumer.com, to learn more about her tour dates.
