Thumbs up Inside Amy Schumer - Comedy Central

Just did a mini marathon on On Demand. If you like Louie, Curb and Seinfeld this is right up your alley.

First off, it is not a Sitcom. It's sketch comedy. But does have the above shows influence.

I've always liked her on the CC Roasts. And she is hilarious. The writing very smart (and raunchy). Not every sketch is a hit, but most are.

My favorites were The Perm, Sexting, Lunch at O'Nutters and Urban Fitters.

Also, was surprised how good an actress she is!

Amy is one of my favorite comedians but this show just didn't do it for me. I looked forward to the small bits of stand up that they showed more than the sketches.

I've only seen the first two episodes. Very hit and miss for me so far. When it's good, it's really good, though.

I agree, I love Amy's stand up and listening to her when she is on O&A but this show is awful. I had maybe 3 laughs the entire time. I deleted my season pass after sitting through 3 episodes. Comparing this show to Louie and Seinfeld is blasphemy.

I'll say this if this show gets a second season and The Ben Show and Nathan For You don't I'm done with Comedy Central.

The show has been renewed. You are now 1/3 of the way "done" with Comedy Central.

It is hit-and-miss, and the hits are freaking hilarious and outweigh the misses. There's always something in an episode that has me dying.

That's pretty much how I feel about it. If she gives me 10-12 minutes out of the 20 that are good, that's still twice what SNL puts out each week.

i like the show, so it makes perfect sense that others don't. most comedies, especially sitcoms, are more miss than hit for me, but this show makes me laugh for some reason. i already know i have strange tastes in comedy.

i've only known amy schumer from the cc roasts, but i've set a sp, and hope the show stays this good or gets better from here on out.

i loved the "a porn star is born" sketch, it was too much!

The 2 girls 1 cup skit was pretty funny.

I love me the BEN SHOW. Amy's show is pretty good.

I'm a fan of Schumer, her standup, the new show, and the ben show also.
It's not for everyone, or even for 1/4 of folks, but it's hilarious when it all comes together. With a dvr skipping through a dud is easy.
The Nathan show is 90 percent bad for me though. I can't watch anymore.

I think this is more of a " If you like the League and Sunny in Philadelphia, you might like this" though. I wouldn't try to sell it to a typical seinfeld fan.

I love both those show and this one just isn't funny in my opinion. If I've gotta skip through 3/4 of a show to find the one funny part its not worth it.

Is there an uncensored version of this show? Perhaps a late night airing?

The reason I ask is that before I even saw the show, I heard a commercial for it on Sirius/XM while listening to Howard Stern. In the commercial I heard there was no bleeping and all curse words were aired. Imagine my surprise when I caught the first 4 episodes or so the other night and they bleeped a good portion of the profanity. Since this show airs on cable they don't "have" to censor it at all. I also know that Comedy Central will sometimes air roasts late at night and air them uncensored. I believe that they also aired the South Park movie late at night uncensored.

I'd like to see this show uncensored if possible. I will still watch even if it's censored, but since I'm an adult, I'd like to make the decision myself. Novel concept, I know.

very well put, this drives me crazy, too. no children in my home, i despise censorship, and there's no chance i'll be offended.

with what we pay for cable, is asking for an uncensored choice really that unreasonable?

I believe the late-night airing, at about 2:00 A.M. Eastern, is unbleeped.

Well, the issue is that it airs on ad-supported cable, and Comedy Central has told their advertisers that the content surrounding their ads will be subject to certain standards.

You mean the standards involved in discussing crapping in a cup, drinking it, spitting it into the other girls mouth and wiping it all over her face? Those standards?

I thought the episode from last night I watched was the weakest by far. And i thought the cancer bit with Tig was kind of an inside joke.

Pretty much agree with most - Love her brand of humor - this show is hit or miss but as others have said - when it hits - it is hilariously funny.

agreed, my least favorite so far - i tried the 1am airing to avoid some "bleeps", it didn't seem to help.

amy is great at the "comedian on the street" routine, a real pro, very casual, not offensive, funny as can be. the stand up segs are usually good, she has real talent and perceptive timing.

the sketches last night were ok, but were off the mark - here's hoping it was just a bad day at the office.

I just don't get this on Comedy Central. It's cable. My understanding this is all voluntary.

The only thing I can think of is that the self censoring is so the show has a less offensive rating. This is so things like parental controls and the vchip allow the program to air for young teenagers or something.

I don't think it makes sense for them to prepare two separate versions of the show. One for late night uncensored viewing, the other with censorship. I would personally like that, but I am going to watch one way or the other.

I enjoyed the family eating out at a Planet Hollywood style restaurant and then Amy with the trivia questions.

Thought last night's episode was the worst so far. I hope it hasn't run out of gas already.

Speaking of gas, I laughed myself silly at the frightened farting sketch. Ep 04 I believe ...

This show always puts me in a good mood, for some reason, even if some of the sketches aren't that funny.

Question - if my aim is to record the late night (hopefully less censored) showings, does Comedy Central tend to be right on schedule, or do I need to pad front and back 5 minutes or so to be sure of getting the whole thing? For instance, if the program guide shows it at 1:02 a.m., is that when it will start, or will it likely be a couple minutes earlier or later than that? And which one (earlier or later)?

Thanks for your help!




Thank you, NorthAlabama!

so far the airings have been on time with the guide, but i always add 1-2 minutes to the end with late night showings, just in case.

I recorded the middle of the night recording of one show (the Gang Bang one). Beeps were still there, I couldn't find one thing beeped at the first airing that wasn't also beeped 6 hours later.
