“I’ll never forget the day I realized I wasn’t quite the Ford Model I thought I was,” said Amy Schumer.  She  is part of the newest breed of comics taking the world.  The young woman has appeared on Comedy Central Roasts and her own comedy specials.  SHe also placed 4th on the fifth season of Last Comic Standing.   Of this, she said, “I just say what I  think is the funniest thing I could say.  I’m not trying to make headlines.  I’m just trying to say the stuff that I think is funny and will make people laugh.”

Amy appeared in the film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.  Or at least we assume she did. No person on the planet saw that film.  She also hawked Butterfingers to obese America proving that artistic integrity always takes a back seat to a big fat paycheck.

On her stand-up success, Amy said, “To be really great, you need to be naturally funny in order to stand out.  But you have to work at it, and find the best vehicle that you have to communicate what you’re saying to people.”

She said, “I’ve always been really dark, and drawn to darker humor.  Nothing has been forced, and I don’t say anything for shock value.”  She also said, “I don’t like observational stuff.  I like tackling the stuff that 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.”
