7 Things You Didn't Know About Amy Schumer


The second season of Inside Amy Schumer premiered on April Fools Day. More recently, the show's beautiful, hilarious, and on-point takedown of the tropes of Aaron Sorkin as set in the fast food service world has been making some well-deserved rounds through social media. This is all happening under the mischievious-but-benevolent ruling of one Amy Schumer, a comedy name you've likely already heard of. If you haven't, you should probably get yourself caught up on who this woman is, because she's not likely to be going away anytime soon. Like I said, you've probably already heard of this lady. But here are some Amy Schumer tidbits you might not already know.

Inside Amy Schumer was almost a talk show, but her heart wasn't in it

From a recent interview with  EW :

She appreciates the finer things in life

She talks about sex a lot in her work in part because she thinks the female perspective on that stuff is important

From an interview with  Fresh Air 's Terry Gross:

She's friends with Dianna Agron

And it's pretty adorable.

She makes a damn good Glinda the Good Witch when she wants to

She moved friend and fellow comic Tig Notaro into her apartment after the latter's cancer diagnosis

From that  EW interview:

She auditioned for the role of Shoshana in Girls

Which is something we can almost picture but not really, a sentiment she agrees with:

We think she's good where she is.
