Inside Amy Schumer season 3 is available on DVD November 24th from Comedy Central. Featuring a dazzling array of guests, this season was loaded with memorable sketches, interviews and much more. Check out my review here.
Amy’s making it a threesome—of seasons, that is—as her smash hit series returns for a third round of the kind of taboo-smashing, Internet-breaking, wildly original comedy that can only be found Inside Amy Schumer. It features scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews; Schumer explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and whether or not it’s the year of the ass.
Milk milk lemonade…. Yeah I hadn’t watched an episode of Inside Amy Schumer before reviewing this third season DVD set so let me tell ya…. Hilarious. The format is key here, which interweaves pre-filmed sketches, stand-up show bits and interviews for a truly winning formula. Inside Amy Schumer is hitting all the right notes that are missing these days from Saturday Night Live in the wake of The Lonely Island’s absence. Also — the DVD is unrated and therefore even more reason to be picking it up right now.
One of the standouts is a lengthy sketch called “12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer’ where they recreate the classic film but instead the jurors debate whether or not Amy is hot enough to be on television. John Hawkes, Paul Giamatti and more act their freaking asses off in one of the most insane and memorable segments that I’ve seen in quite some time. It works because it’s funny as hell and the performers are genuinely taking this serious in their own signature acting styles. When Jeff Goldblum slams that dildo down onto the table – shit gets real.
The rapper boyfriend sketch was something that I found enjoying even more after seeing the outtakes. I love how these are integrated at the end of every episode and it shows you just how much fun working on the series is for the cast and crew. The ‘Amy Goes Deep’ segments are really eye opening too because she will speak with some very interesting people and not just for the sake of comedy either. She talks with the guy who used to run that cheating date-site Ashley Madison, an open couple, a psychic and more. They’re all fascinating.
Inside Amy Schumer is a fast-paced comedy series that I urge you to check out because it’s unlike anything else currently airing on television due to it’s clever format that combines so many unique pieces that all mash up well together in quick half-hour episodes. Not to mention all that raping in Football Town Nights. Classic.
