Amy is the Queen of Self Deprecation
17 June 2013 | by drake34See all my reviews

The series features Schumer's take on life, sex, men, women, dating & relationships through scripted scenes, stand-up routines, & woman-on- the-street interviews.

Self deprecating humor is defined where you put yourself down. Sometimes funny, but sometimes overused fishing for compliments or a signal of low self-esteem. Example: "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have. My boss told me that was NOT a good look for the office." Amy would read that & LOVE that definition & the example.

I find this show funny because the dating segments usually are a mix between a woman with rock bottom self esteem mixed with some cold & cruel narcissistic dude. I thought several sketches were laugh out loud funny BECAUSE they are so over the top & out of control. What I love about Amy is how she can show painful disappointment with her hilarious but very subtle facial expressions...as people put her down and treat her with zero respect constantly. I am a fan of this show as it is TRULY a fun social commentary on modern dating. What makes me laugh the MOST are the sketches that have the "Hell Date" or "Disaster Date" feel to them. Oh man...at times I am sitting there saying this is my life.

It REALLY has SOME shades of truth to it...how self absorbed our society has become. Then some scripted scenes are so off the wall...like her nightmare sketch...OMG...so hilarious. Blah...blah...blah...I am stuck in Amy's nightmare on a daily basis.

("Blah...blah...blah...Eli Manning...blah...blah...blah...sports...blah...blah...blah...natural birth...blah...blah...blah...")

Modern dating is so depressing that so many people can seriously relate to this show. I love Amy...she is my favorite comedienne...by far now. I first saw her on 'Red Eye' and thought she was great. I am so glad Comedy Central renewed this gem for another season.

Kudos to the writers...great work...great approach. Oh...I neglected to mention I love the guest appearances by some of her comedian friends. Cast has been fantastic so far. I have only seen 1 lame sketch out of 20 too.

So far...19 of 20 sketches made me laugh & that is SO RARE for me nowadays...so I thank you guys for cheering me up for once. I bet Amy has seriously experienced some of these "3 scoops or crazy" people as at times there is no way you can write this stuff...has to be based on real "characters" one of the writers or Amy has had the displeasure of coming across. I meet them too & that is another reason I am a fan. I can totally relate. It is like someone followed me around with a video camera in a day of my life...sad but true...it is totally like this show...on a daily basis, but FOR REAL.
