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.

The Lost In Space Show That Disappeared

With the new series now on Netflix, Neil Calloway looks at a previous attempt to bring the Lost in Space to TV…

You’ll probably be familiar, if only by name or a vague recollection of a repeat when you were a kid, of the original 1960s Lost in Space, a campy pre-Star Trek sci-fi TV show about the Robinson family who, you guessed it, are lost in space. In 1998, thirty years after the original show ended, a big budget, big screen remake came out and did moderately well at the box office but wasn’t exactly showered with praise by the critics.

All was quiet on the Robinson family front until this new outing, but that wasn’t meant to be the case. About 15 years ago, another attempt was made to bring Lost in Space back to the small screen.

Kyle Chandler replacing George Clooney in Catch-22

According to Variety, there has been a shuffling of the pack over on Hulu’s upcoming TV adaptation of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22, with Friday Night Lights and Bloodline’s Kyle Chandler replacing George Clooney as Colonel Cathcart, and joining Hugh Laurie (House) and Christopher Abbott (The Sinner) in the spy thriller.

Clooney, who is directing the opening two episodes, as well as executive producing the six part series, will still step in front of the camera as a character called Scheisskopf, a training commander at the cadet school.

Catch-22 stars Abbott as U.S. Air Force bombadier Yossarian, “who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy, but rather his own army which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid his military assignments,
