Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo

amy schumer live at the apolloHad the opportunity to catch Amy Schumer’s HBO special, Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo this weekend with my niece Lauren (who has HBO). Live at the Apollo is the first time I heard Schumer’s stand-up. She is the straight girl version of Margaret Cho – minus the ethnicity and politics. But don’t misinterpret that last sentence. Schumer packs a wicked punch challenging her audience to look at a straight blond woman and see her unapologetic sexuality as positive and healthy instead of stereotypically slutty. I laughed out loud nearly non-stop through the first half hour and smiled and chuckled during the final half. Amy’s honest, genuine, in your face comedy is refreshing and most needed. 4 out of 5 for Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo.
