Definitely give it a chance, the show becomes even funnier as it goes along!
Normally I'm much too lazy to write reviews, but I strongly disagree with what a low rating this show has been given.
I just finished watching episode 6 and must say this show is really, really funny! Probably the best sketch show that I've seen in many years.
However, in fairness, the type of humour is not for everyone. It's very tongue in cheek, absurdest, kind of sarcastic. But if you like Tosh, Louie or Sarah Silverman type humour, I think you will appreciate Amy Schumer. If you find their humor to be offensive or crass, then this show is probably not something you would enjoy.
As well, this show this show may appeal to women, slightly more than men. However, it's so funny that I recommend that everyone should give it a chance. Give it at least 2-3 episodes.
There are usually a few sketches, interspersed with street interviews with random real people, a little bit of stand up comedy and then usually a short interview with a real person who has and a less than mainstream type job. For example, one interview was with an exotic dancer, another episode had a very personable dominatrix and the last episode that I watched (episode 6) had an interview with a Ballerina.
Like any sketch show, some of the sketches are hit and miss, some funnier than others. But the ones that are really funny usually have such a hilarious concept that I can't be that annoyed with sketches that I don't enjoy. Plus, the show moves very quickly.
So anyways, after watching 6 out of 10 episodes, I will say there have been many laugh out loud moments and I've usually finished the show smiling. It did take me a couple of episodes to get into it, but now that I have --- I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends and family who like to laugh! :)
