In one particular scene, Amy drags her friends to O’Nutters, the male equivalent of Hooters, where the guys wear crotch-hugging outfits. (You can watch the scene below!)

Amy’s new show is a mix of traditional stand-up comedy, sketches and on-the-street interviews that produces genuine laughs. And other media outlets agree!

Zap2it says, “Schumer shines in the moments that allow her to be herself, as in the very funny segments on the streets of New York City or her interview with a random model.”

The Hollywood Reporter says, “In its scripted segments, the series is stylishly produced, and its wit is dry while its tone is bubbly. Not every segment is a hit, but the ones that are deserve to be quoted, repeated and discussed.”

Entertainment Weekly says, “There’s something communal about Schumer’s approach to comedy. It’s not just about punchlines. It’s about conversations. And she makes the women around her seem funnier, just by letting them in on the joke.”
