Amy Schumer has officially announced the return of her sketch comedy show, Inside Amy Schumer. The show premiered on Comedy Central on April 30th, 2013, and ran for four seasons until 2016. After a long-needed break, Schumer is back and better than ever with her witty and dangerously honest skits. Here's what we know.
Amy Schumer is typically known to address the awkward yet realistic challenges people come across on a daily basis. However, Schumer's awkward and comedic nature has never failed to get a gag out of an audience. Besides the renowned Saturday Night Live, viewers didn't have a good sketch comedy show in a while. So, when Inside Amy Schumer aired, it was probably the absurd - yet humorous - shock the nation never thought it needed. The sketches typically "revolved around her sexual escapades and past relationships" such as One Night Stand or First Date. Still, that doesn't mean there weren't any audience members that could shamefully relate. Now, as she returns to our screens after six years, she is "in a bid to get herself forever canceled" as she plans to "burn any remaining bridges."
As we speak, she is probably noting down some of the most highly questionable sketch ideas that only she can get away with. Not to mention, she announced her comeback with the controversial excuse, "it's what the Queen would have wanted." During her six-year hiatus, she starred in movie specials such as Trainwreck, and I Feel Pretty - which brilliantly touched on struggles with self-esteem and confidence - while also focused on her stand-up tour. However, sketch comedy seems to be her forte as she promises fans that the series "isn't holding anything back." As she spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, she claimed, "I have these very specific things that I want to express and also (I want to) make something funny." While we can barely wait for the jokes she has in store for us, we remember the hilarious guest stars that popped up on the show, like Selena Gomez, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Laura Linney, and Steve Buscemi. So, we can only wonder who will do the honors of appearing in her comeback season, perhaps Kim Kardashian West? After all, she killed her comedic debut when she hosted SNL.
While Schumer is not afraid to address most subjects, she claims to be currently "educating herself." She plans to be more "sensitive" this time round, understanding she needs to start "taking responsibility" if jokes result in having harmful effects on her audience. On a higher note, her fifth season is dropping on Paramount+, on October 20th, and we couldn't be more excited. Welcome back, Schumer!
