Evolution of Amy Schumer: From Stand Up Comic to ‘I Feel Pretty’ (Photos)

Evolution of Amy Schumer: From Stand Up Comic to ‘I Feel Pretty’ (Photos)
Long before we’ve all come to know and love the charming witty multi-hyphenate, Amy Schumer was once an unknown comic longing for her big break.

April 16, 2015

Time Magazine names Schumer one of its 100 Most Influential People of 2015.

The magazine wrote:

“Amy’s got your back.

She’s in your corner.

She’s an honesty bomb.

And she’s coming for you.”

December 2, 2016

TheWrap learns that Schumer is in talks to play Barbie in a live-action movie for Sony based on the iconic Mattel line of dolls.

2003

Schumer enters the world of stand-up comedy. She performs her first ever gig at Manhattan’s Gotham Comedy Club shortly after graduating from Towson University in Maryland.

2007

Schumer appears on a Comedy Central episode of “Live at Gotham” which shows comedians performing at the New York City comedy club.

2007

After previously auditioning and not making it, the comedian finally makes it on to the fifth season of “Last Comic Standing,” where a few comedians compete for $250,000 and a TV special.

Schumer placed fourth.

2011

Schumer applies to be a writer on the “Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen,” but doesn’t get the job–instead, she gets to be a roaster.

Amy Schumer’s 12 Best Moments: From a ‘Slutty’ Tattoo Joke to That Startling Cheer Dance (Photos)

Amy Schumer’s 12 Best Moments: From a ‘Slutty’ Tattoo Joke to That Startling Cheer Dance (Photos)
Amy Schumer’s early stand-up comedy always had her playing coy, cute and humble. But she would surprise you with humor so smutty, sexual and self-deprecating. Since then, she’s blossomed as a physical comedian, a feminist and a body-positive icon without losing that innocent charm. And with her new movie “I Feel Pretty” opening Friday, she’s still surprising us. Schumer is behind a lot of great sketches on her show “Inside Amy Schumer,” from parodies of “12 Angry Men,” “Friday Night Lights” and a hacky fake talk show. But these moments are designed to highlight the best of Schumer’s range as a comedic actress.

Katie Couric

Amy Schumer practically broke Questlove when she told this story to Jimmy Fallon. Schumer took Katie Couric’s phone at a gala dinner and texted her husband saying she wanted to…well you should just watch the clip. What makes it hilarious isn’t strictly what she said but that she did it as if it was involuntary.

Bradley Cooper

Amy Schumer has a hilarious obsession with Bradley Cooper, and honestly, who would blame her? She’s mentioned on numerous talk shows and in her stand-up how she’s pestered him at awards shows, shouted his name and declared herself in a relationship with him. “He’s the type of hot that when you see him, you immediately grab your ankles,” Schumer joked on “SNL.” But Schumer isn’t just gushing; she’s creating a believable fantasy for women everywhere.

Milk Milk Lemonade

Watching “Milk Milk Lemonade” should practically come with an Nsfw warning for how much colorful, eye-popping gyrating it puts on screen. But “Milk Milk Lemonade” takes the overtly sexualized imagery so often seen in similar music videos and frames women’s bodies as something natural “where my poop comes out.” Plus it’s actually a damn catchy song.

The Foodroom

“Inside Amy Schumer” had a lot of pitch perfect parodies, but Schumer stands out the most in this Aaron Sorkin parody of “The Newsroom.” She elevates the sketch beyond putting Sorkin’s walking and talking monologues in a fast food setting, making her screwball, romantic banter hilariously smutty as well.

Golden Globes with Jennifer Lawrence

Back at the Golden Globes in 2015, one of the greatest celeb Bff pairings was born when Schumer took the stage with Jennifer Lawrence. If she’s J-Law, then Amy Schumer’s nickname is “A-Schu” (say it out loud). They look alike, sound alike, can make each other laugh, and Lawrence’s awkward, cool-girl persona is a stage presence Schumer has spent her whole career cultivating.

The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen

Schumer already appeared on “Last Comic Standing” and as a writer and actress with some visibility, but her ruthless insult comedy here was when she truly broke out, going on to earn a Comedy Central special and then her own show. She’s especially tough on Mike Tyson and his “slutty back tattoo” on his face.

Dance from Trainwreck

There are a lot of great moments from “Trainwreck,” a truly underrated recent comedy (I’m partial to this one). But even though it ends with a familiar, Hollywood ending dance scene, Schumer makes it work. She’s not just hamming it up the way Will Ferrell or Melissa McCarthy might. She’s confident and comfortable in her own skin even as she’s hilariously outmatched by the cheerleaders around her.

Last F—able Day

I hesitate to include this brilliant “Inside Amy Schumer” sketch because, by design, Schumer is the fourth funniest woman in it. But she has a way of bringing out the best in other funny ladies, and the gag is an inspired commentary about women of a certain age in Hollywood.

18 Stars We’re Worried About on Tax Day, From Nicolas Cage to Lindsay Lohan (Photos)

18 Stars We’re Worried About on Tax Day, From Nicolas Cage to Lindsay Lohan (Photos)
Tax Day is here, and don’t worry Cardi B, it’s confusing for everyone. These stars have all had issues with the IRS in the past. Hopefully they’re not sweating it again at the deadline.

Wesley Snipes

The “Blade” star spent three years in prison after being found guilty on three counts of failing to file a federal income tax returns in 2008. Snipes dodged $7 million in taxes between 1999 and 2000.

Lindsay Lohan

The “Mean Girls” star was caught trying to stiff the IRS three years in a row (2009, 2010, 2011), leading the IRS to seize her bank accounts in 2012. Charlie Sheen eventually helped pay back some of her debt.

Chris Tucker

Rush Hour” star Chris Tucker reached a settlement with the IRS in 2014. A federal tax collector filed a $2.5 million lien against the actor, but it was described as a formality necessary to the settlement.

Dennis Rodman

The former NBA star may need to put his friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un to the test by taking out a loan to pay off the $450,000 he owed to the states of California and Michigan, plus the federal government, in back taxes in 2014.

Teri Polo

The Fosters” star Teri Polo filed for bankruptcy in 2014, with Chapter 11 filings that showed she owed $745,000 in back taxes to the IRS and another $27,000 to the state of California.

Sean Kingston

The “Beautiful Girls” singer was hit with a lien in 2012 after the IRS found out he never paid $131,379 in taxes from 2009, the year he made it big in the music industry.

Lauryn Hill

This Grammy-winning singer paid her tax debt to society, failing to file returns on $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007, by serving three months in prison in 2013.

O.J. Simpson

“The People v Oj Simpson” detailed O.J. Simpson’s murder charges, but not his tax issues. In 2013, the IRS filed a lien for more than $500,000 of unpaid taxes between 2000 and 2011.

Richard Hatch

The original “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch was convicted of tax evasion in 2006 for failing to pay taxes on the show’s $1 million prize. He served 51 months in federal prison.

Willie Nelson

When the IRS came asking for millions of dollars in unpaid taxes from Willie Nelson, the country singer was forced to auction off his personal belongings. He even released the album “The IRS Tapes: Who’ll Buy My Memories?” to help raise the money for repayment.

Pamela Anderson

Former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson was hit with tax liens totaling more than $350,000 in 2012 over unpaid taxes to the federal government and the state of California.

Martha Stewart

Unrelated to her 2004 prison sentence for insider trading, Martha Stewart was forced to pay $220,000 in back taxes to the IRS in 2002 for her home in New York.

Nicolas Cage

The IRS slammed Nicolas Cage with a bill for $6.2 million in 2009. The actor promptly sued his money manager for negligence and fraud.

Al Sharpton

In 2014, The New York Times reported that Reverend Al Sharpton owed more than $4.5 million in back taxes to the IRS, adding that his National Action Network was only able to survive by not paying payroll taxes on its employees.

Joe and Teresa Guidice

After filing for bankruptcy in 2009, Joe and Teresa Giudice were convicted on fraud charges in 2013. Joe was also charged with failure to file tax returns for 2004-08.

Lionel Richie

In 2012, Lionel Richie owed $1.1 million to the IRS in unpaid income taxes from 2010.

Christie Brinkley

The IRS issued a tax lien against supermodel Christie Brinkley totaling $531,000 in 2011. Worth an estimated $80 million, Brinkley apologized publicly soon after and vowed to pay it back immediately.

Ja Rule

Rapper Ja Rule plead guilty to tax evasion and illegal firearm possession in 2011, serving two years in New York prison. He owed more than $1.1 million to the IRS in unpaid income taxes.

The Top Five Martin Sheen Yelling Moments in Movies

Charlie Sheen is the kind of guy that doesn’t yell all that often but in many scenes it almost sounds like he has to force it. The fact that it comes out sounding strained at times either has something to do with his physiology or how he feels about yelling. Some people don’t like it since the act can strain the vocal chords and does occasionally hurt if you do it for too long. But each and every time Shen does it the sound is almost like he’s pushing it as much as he can in order to get the

‘Isle of Dogs’ Co-Writer Roman Coppola on Becoming Wes Anderson’s Collaborative Secret Weapon

‘Isle of Dogs’ Co-Writer Roman Coppola on Becoming Wes Anderson’s Collaborative Secret Weapon
While writer-director Wes Anderson deserves the credit for his chain of impressive features — and his latest, the stop-motion “Isle of Dogs,” marks one of his most vividly charming — he has long relied on a man whom Anderson calls his “Swiss Army knife”: screenwriter Roman Coppola. Anderson and Coppola’s collaboration led to their Original Screenplay Oscar nomination for “Moonrise Kingdom,” but Coppola’s contributions are often lower key; Anderson said he often relies on Roman to keep him on track.

“Roman and I have worked together for many years on an awful lot of movies,” wrote Anderson in an email, “first on ‘The Life Aquatic,’ where he shot numerous strange and complicated shots. Then ‘The Darjeeling Limited’ which we wrote with Jason [Schwartzman]. Then on ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ Roman helped me sort of find a story that I had somehow completely lost track of — and we then dreamed up the whole rest of the movie together.

What’s your favorite Best Picture Oscar winner of 1980s: ‘Rain Man,’ ‘Terms of Endearment,’ ‘Platoon’ … ? [Poll]
The 1980s were a big era for the “epic” movie winning Best Picture at the Oscars. “Chariots of Fire,” “Gandhi,” “Out of Africa,” “Platoon” and “The Last Emperor” all share that grand-scale style of film that tends to be rewarded decade after decade at the Oscars. The ’80s also included just as many intense character studies winning Best Picture, including “Ordinary People,” “Terms of Endearment” and “Amadeus,” while others were on the lighter side, like “Rain Man” and “Driving Miss Daisy.”

In this divisive decade, which Best Picture-winning film remains your favorite? Let us take a look back on each winner and be sure to vote in our poll below.
