Watch Amy Schumer's Aaron Sorkin Parody 'The Foodroom'

Here's a funny sketch from last night's Inside Amy Schumer, in which Schumer and company parody The Newsroom by moving it to a fast food setting in "The Foodroom." Apple slices have never held so much dramatic weight before.

Season 2 of 'Inside Amy Schumer' Starts Off with a Banging

Before Broad City exploded onto the scene, comedian Amy Schumer stood alone as Comedy Central's (to steal a term from tonight's Inside Amy Schumer premiere) "feminist-bent on a male-skewering network," serving as both a powerful female force and adaptable demographic-straddler on a channel that has traditionally catered to dorm room bros. Her TV success has depended on — as it often does for girls with a lot of older brothers — out-crassing them on one level then turning that crassness completely on its head on the other; in the first three episodes alone she plays the comic who calls out the objectification of women in fashion magazines then goes [...]

Here's a Trailer for the Return of 'Inside Amy Schumer' on April 1st

Here's a trailer for the second season of Inside Amy Schumer, which counts Reggie Watts, Michael Ian Black, Zach Braff, Rachel Dratch, Colin Quinn, Paul Giamatti, and a screaming Parker Posey among its cameos. The new season premieres on April 1st at 10:30PM, so get ready for a whole new era in the fight against slut shaming.

Talking to Amy Schumer About Her New Comedy Central Show

Amy Schumer has had a huge year with the debut of her hit show, Inside Amy Schumer, on Comedy Central. Known for her bawdy style, the New York comic is now in the midst of trying to juggle her own whirlwind of success. I caught up with Amy to see how she’s surviving her insane schedule, what’s next for the show, and how her parents felt about the show's "Two Girls, One Cup" sketch.

Check Out Two Sketches from Amy Schumer's New Comedy Central Show

Amy Schumer's new Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer is set to debut on April 30th, and Comedy Central has released these two sketches in advance of the show's premiere. Inside Amy Schumer is a mix of sketch, stand-up, and man on the street segments, and it also features Jon Glaser in tight-fitting outfits.

Watch Amy Schumer Play a Depressingly Accurate Video Game

In case you missed it, here's a fantastic clip from Inside Amy Schumer where Amy tries to play a Call of Duty-type game but learns some very real-life lessons after she chooses to play using the game's female avatar.

Talking to Amy Schumer About Season Two of 'Inside Amy Schumer'

When Inside Amy Schumer premiered last April, it had the best first-episode ratings for any show on Comedy Central and got quickly renewed after only four episodes. The series successfully mixed often over-the-top scenes with standup, man-on-the-street interviews, and conversations with unique professionals, with Schumer always at the wheel.

Tonight, the show returns in full force, with a second season premiere called “Would You Bang Her” in which Schumer interacts with God (guest star Paul Giamatti), plays tennis, and goes deep with a porn producer. Recently, I got the chance to talk with Schumer, who in addition to Inside Amy's 10-episode second season is on tour doing standup [...]

The Best of 'Inside Amy Schumer's First Season

The reason why Inside Amy Schumer seemed to work since the show premiered, and the reason why the entire first season ended up being a success, is because it felt like all of the sketches clearly represented the vision of the star of the show, no matter which writer or writers were responsible. Schumer's established artistic scope is a very appealing one — Amy engages her audience with a ribald vocabulary, yet after you hear two or more setups and punchlines it's clear that she is more than vulnerable. She constantly doubts herself, using one eye to wink at the fun she's having through being single while using [...]

Comedy Central Renews 'Inside Amy Schumer' for Season 2

Comedian Amy Schumer announced on Twitter yesterday that Comedy Central has renewed her new sketch show for a second season. Inside Amy Schumer premiered on the basic cable network in late April, and the renewal is coming early, after only four episodes of the 10-episode first season have aired. The renewal comes as no surprise after Inside Amy Schumer had the best launch of any Comedy Central show this year, beating The Jeselnik Offensive, Nathan for You, and Kroll Show numbers-wise. Comedy Central has long had a reputation for canceling new shows after only one season, but that's no longer the case as the network has given second season orders [...]

Check Out a Preview for Amy Schumer's Comedy Central Show

Here's Kyle Kinane's voice introing a preview for Amy Schumer's new Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, which premieres Tuesday, April 30th, at 10:30. The show is a blend of sketch, stand-up, and man-on-the-street segments, and it looks pretty ribald.

'Inside Amy Schumer's Premiere Beat Everything Else on TV in Its Key Demo

Last night's second season premiere of Inside Amy Schumer did super well in the ratings. The Comedy Central sketch show received 2.0 million viewers in the 18-34 demographic, making it the most-watched show on both broadcast and cable. The series actually improved on the ratings of Tosh.0, which airs before it and received 1.9 million in that same demographic, effectively beating one of the network's most popular shows.

Watch a Clip From Tonight's 'Inside Amy Schumer' Finale in Which Will Hines Is Penetrated

Tonight at 10:30pm is the season finale of Inside Amy Schumer, the latest in a line of sketch comedy wins from Comedy Central. Up there is a preview from the episode, from a sketch appropriately titled "Penetrating Phil." Phil is played by UCB NY mainstay/Very Mary Kate star Will Hines, who I think we can all agree makes the best facial expressions possible when passively participating in a conversation about being penetrated.
