I know, I know, I know. I never, ever delve into topics like this. They’re slightly boring, open to personal interpretation, and frankly I have better things to do with my time. However, I feel like Amy is only gaining traction and I cannot stand the thought of a humorless hag taking over my screens and ruining this thing that I love- comedy.

Amy Schumer is not funny.

There! You finally know the truth. She’s a one trick pony with the same joke on repeat. And it’s not even coming off as a joke. It’s coming off as a pathetic attempt to create a persona that I’m convinced an agent decided to represent and he went looking for someone willing to wear the suit.

See Amy. Amy likes sex. Amy likes drinks. Amy is funny. 

No, no, no! For god’s sake, she’s terrible. She’s like Adam Sandler, only even more awful. At least Adam, in all his stupid humor, is telling a joke. You crack a smile while groaning because he’s just so ridiculous.

But Adam is at least believable. You think this would really happen to him when no one’s looking. He fits the character he’s built for himself and he makes terrific money based on it. Good for you Adam Sandler! I may not like you, but others do.

People don’t like Amy. I haven’t ever met a single person outside of “the business” who thinks Amy is funny. I know a wide variety of people spanning across the entire United States, the Navy does a great job introducing me to new people every single day. And you know what? Not one of them could say Amy Schumer is funny. In fact, once they actually try to watch her “humor” they come to the complete opposite conclusion. I’ve got friends who even went so far as to write Amy an email asking for a refund on their rental of Trainwreck.

Even I didn’t go that far!

I’d like to leave you with this little thought. Amy was thin-skinned over a 17-year-old critic making an innocent joke that she’s made 1000 times herself. People who write material and find it humorous will also find it humorous when other people do it as well. But to find it offensive when other people do your humor usually means your shit is scripted for you.

    1. I love you so much for commenting! All my Facebook followers are chiming in, but I already knew they all thought she wasn’t funny. I’m trying to find one person, one single bloody person on this planet, who thinks this lady is funny. And I’m failing. Apparently, only celebrities think her shit is worth listening to! I think they all drank the kool-aid she made.

    1. Do you have a theory on how she got so popular? I haven’t been able to chase down a single person who likes her, so now I’m just trying to chase down theories on why she could be liked.

      1. I found it particularly telling that Jerry Seinfeld had Amy on his show and they had to use so much music to fill the awkward silence. The only time they actually show Jerry laughing at something Amy said, the music covered up what Amy was saying. I think they were play acting, like they do in TV shows. Her mouth was moving and he was pretending to laugh.

      2. And I watched the episode of her on Ellen and I just didn’t see anything the laugh at. Ellen was funny… Amy was not. It’s very awkward to watch Amy with other comedians because they have nothing to work with. Even when she presented the award with Jennifer Lawrence, I thought Jen would have been much funnier if she didn’t have that deadweight standing next to her throwing off her rhythm.

    1. Even if she was being crude just to be crude, I would accept it if it were funny. It’s not my cup of tea, but I don’t really care. Let’s face it, men can make these crude jokes and get away with it as evidenced by Adam Sandler’s very lucrative career. But she just has zero humor as she tries to make these jokes. I think someone else writes this crap for her and she was the chosen to go onstage and act it out. She’s like a bad actress acting out a bad script

    1. To date, no one except for my younger brother likes her. I’d say it’s because he thought he’d have a shot if he met her in real life, but he’s gay so that can’t be it. I think he just likes stories that involve drunk people. But the rest of us, who appreciate real humor, cannot find this woman funny.

    1. I found one!!! I knew you guys existed, you’re like a unicorn! I think I would’ve enjoyed her but I feel like she keeps doing the same jokes over and over. I tried really hard to watch trainwreck but I just couldn’t get in the groove of enjoyment.

  1. I liked her a lot more when she first started out, even went to see her stand up show for my wife’s birthday a few years ago, but will agree her act has gotten a bit stale. I think you could probably say that about most comedians though #thatfridaylinky
