It's hard to tell if the totally unfunny, boring, overlong material of latest act is just an anomaly, or if talented, edgy is no more. This was awful. I really wanted to like l. I think Amy Schumer is funny, having seen her previous stand up acts and that Bill Hader movie. She told clever jokes. The Leather Special has no jokes. I didn't laugh once. My wife didn't laugh once. describes gross subjects while making gross faces. That's it. That's the whole special - or I assume it is. I quit watching with about fifteen minutes left, but I saw enough to be assured that it wasn't going to get any more funny. I'm not making fun of her weight because being heavy doesn't matter in comedy, but I think her appearance merits a mention. She wears a smallish, tight leather dress that along with a bad hairdo choice and horrible make-up creates an unflattering, swollen look that is a negative distraction. I don't think an entertainer's political views matter, so I don't hold it against them, but political comedy tends to be tedious at best. Schumer is politically active, which is her business. I appreciate that she didn't overload this act with politics - some, not much. Two out of ten if for nothing more than a star's worth of encouragement for funny to come back.
