Pulling yet another comic i’ve never heard of, the young upstart of a label has another winner on it’s hands with Amy Schumer and her new CD, Cutting. Being unfamiliar with her work, i wish i had known how fucking hilarious she was before listening to her debut driving home from NY the other day–i damn near drove off the road at least three times, i was laughing so hard.
Schumer puts a girl’s spin on the more typically boy topics of one-night stands and tawdry affairs. Her timing is impeccable, and her set ups are stellar. She’s a master of the add-on, seeming to linger in the story before banging home killer punchlines. Plus, she has the obligatory “guy with a really weird, prominent laugh in the audience,” so you know this CD is a beast. Amy waxes rhapsodic on creepy French guys, reasons why Jews aren’t into The Good News, hot Swedish homeless and asshole bleaching. Truly, there’s something here for everyone.
