’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.
“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.
