COMEDY | Amy Schumer


Comedian Amy Schumer had been on a steady rise for years — a successful appearance on "Last Comic Standing," appearances in TV shows and movies, a steady slot on those Comedy Central Roast specials — but she virtually exploded in 2013 with "Inside Amy Schumer," her sketch comedy series. Not only is Schumer fearlessly hilarious with a nothing-is-sacred approach, talking about dating anxiety, bad sex, porn, city life, and the humdrums of modern adult life, but her show — one of the few female-driven writing teams on TV, with Jessi Klein and Tig Notaro — has done a lot in recent years to shine an overdue light on talented women in comedy.

Amy Schumer performs on Saturday, September 20, at the Auditorium Theatre, 885 East Main Street. 8 p.m. $32-$52.;
