    I don't know if this is for everyone, but I thought this was GREAT. I'd like to raise my two girls to be as awesome as Schumer someday.

    Fair warning: Story of an amusing, awkward, awful sexual encounter within.

    I'm old.

    I had no idea who she was. I had to look it up.

    It looks like she gave the speech last year.

    If you change Matt into Marie, and Amy into Adam, and keep her story on a college campus. ... it becomes a rape story.

    One of the best comics working.

    One of the best comic shows I've ever seen was Schumer opening for Norton.

    I really hope her movie does well. I'd love for her to become even more famous than she already is.

    I'm not terribly familiar with her work, but I saw the trailer for her upcoming movie and it looks epic.

    Her standup is amazing. Both of her specials are in heavy rotation on Comedy Central. Her sketch show is probably the best show Comedy Central has had since Chappelle went nuts.

    Just discovering her work and she's excellent. One of her DVDs is due to arrive tomorrow.

    One of the very few comics I ever even notice anymore. She's great.

    I wonder what age you'd show that to a daughter.

    There's no age limit on obliviousness.

    Like her standup, like her CC show. Loved that speech.

    Not sure what people are thinking when they say she's fat. I think she's smoking hot. A healthy, funny woman.

    Check out her Entertainment Weekly cover.

    Yeah, I agree with you 2G. I think she's spectacular. Real, funny. Someone you'd love to sit around with and waste an evening over a few beers.
