Swing and a miss!
13 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed her shows before, but Schumer was neither funny nor insightful in this special. A huge swing and a miss. With the exception of the gun riff, she relied on old material focused mainly on her smelly body parts. Maybe that is why none of the big premier pay channels picked up this special. Netflix will have to do better in the future choosing streaming material.
