I’ve seen Amy’s rise to fame over the years and along with her career, I too have had up and down feelings about her work. I loved Amy Schumer in her struggles to become a new face on Comedy Central’s “Last Comic Standing”, which she did with her fresh and often risque humor. In her first couple seasons of “Inside Amy Schumer”, her humor was just a bit too much to stomach. Her pertinacity to make sure to go over the top and beyond the threshold of raunchy comedy. I love raunchy comedy with a passion but her attempt at goin past the line was not yet perfected. Like falling in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the red carpet is the sort of things she should stay away from, as it looks she is vying for the wrong kind of comedic attention.
“Trainwreck” will show how Amy Schumer has now come back full circle to the days of her original stand-up comedy of witty and classy dirty humor that made me love her in the first place. “Trainereck” looks like a movie that people will come out feeling they can relate so much with Amy and Bill Hader, as normal everyday common-folks that you can hangout with. Amy and Bill are brilliant at making an amazing comedy without having the audience feel we cannot reach unobtainable standards in looks and celebrity.
Amy also did a recent photo shoot and fantastic interview with GQ Magazine that made me turn from a critical onlooker of her work, to an instant lover of Schumer. Be sure to pick up your copy and at least have a laugh if you’re not one that gets too overly “offended” as people seem to get these days.
Who is Amy Schumer:
The stand-up comedian, writer, producer, and now major motion picture actress has had one long road to the “big show”. She started doing stand-up comedy on June 1, 2004, when she first performed at Gotham Comedy Club. She recorded a Live at Gotham episode for Comedy Central. Amy first hit the public spotlight when she placed 4th on the fifth season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and placed second on Comedy Central’s Reality Strikes Back In 2012, she held a recurring role on the Adult Swim series Delocated.
She is the star of the sketch comedy series Inside Amy Schumer, which has been airing on Comedy Central since 2013. Amy also hosted the 2015 MTV Movie Awards. 2015 has been a standout year for Amy Schumer, with her show “Inside Amy Schumer” receiving Peabody and Critic’s Choice Television Awards.
“I don’t like the observational stuff. I like tackling the stuff nobody else talks about, like the darkest, most serious thing about yourself. I talk about life and sex and personal stories and stuff everybody can relate to, and some can’t”
Schumer’s response to critics, saying she has ‘a shockingly large blind spot around race’.
“I enjoy playing the girl who time to time says the dumbest thing possible… Trust me. I am not racist.”
For me it seems that “Trainwreck” is going to wreck every conception the general public has ever had on Amy Schumer. At least that’s the why I am feeling about Amy’s breakout major motion picture debut. I cannot wait to get a full look at Judd Apatow’s “Trainwreck” when it comes to theaters on July 17th.
