Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Inside Amy Schumer is what TGS, the faux show at the center of 30 Rock, could be if the writers of 30 Rock actually wrote a funny show-within-a-show instead of throwaway jokes about Fart Doctor. Inside Amy Schumer is fearlessly feminist, defiantly woman-oriented, hysterically funny and so very, very dirty that parents will most definitely want to watch first before letting teens tune in.

An illustration: One sketch involves a casting session for an unbelievably obscene viral porn video; the casting director describes in heinous detail what will be involved. "Well, I guess I need more on-camera time," Schumer says, psyching herself up for the job. "It's commentary, right? It's kinda meta?" She wonders if it's art and might end up in the MOMA. "No, it's scat porn," says the director. "It's the opposite of art." If that sounds funny to you, you'll laugh at Inside Amy Schumer. If it sounds dreadful, you won't. Pretty simple.
