Oh, Amy Schumer, how will we ever stop having gi-normous comedy crushes on you if you don’t quit being so goddamn awesome? But actually, a better question probably is, why would we want to stop in the first place? After the smash success of Inside Amy Schumer‘s first two seasons, a lot of pressure must be riding on the Schum crew to keep coming up with killer, bite-sized comedy that stimulates both the brain and the belly laugh. Thankfully, the third season of the Comedy Central hit (premiering tonight at 10:30 pm ET!) is every bit as committed to conjuring up the best of Schumer’s peculiar perspective. Even better? Comedy Central announced this morning that Inside Amy Schumer has been picked up for a fourth season.
Maintaining its sketch/stand-up/street interview format, Schumer is often the butt of the best jokes, just as frequently as she plays the cheerful instigator. One particular sketch that stands out from the first episode is its titular piece: “Last Fuckable Day.” Here, Amy is joined by Tina Fey, Patricia Arquette, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, gathered together for a picnic to celebrate JLD’s final afternoon as a quantify-ably “fuckable” actress. Quipping about the dichotomy between aging female and male actors while wearing shit-eating grins, the gang sends Louis-Dreyfus off to sea in a ceremonial canoe, and simultaneously rings in what is sure to be Schumer’s most thought-provoking season yet.
Be sure to check out the season premiere of Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central tonight. If nothing else, we promise you’re about to learn what those big-bootied dancers in so many videos really do with their butts. (Hint: consult your local library for a copy of Everybody Poops).
