Season two of Inside Amy Schumer kicks off

Fans of comedy Central programming may be familiar with the name Amy Schumer. The second season of her show called inside Amy Schumer has kicked off and it sounds like the show is off to a good start.

The first few episodes will see her play a comic that basks the objectification of women in magazines and then poses nude for Peta. She also plays a meek secretary that beats up her male supervisor, and a tomboy that drives her guy friends to question sexuality.

The show sounds like typical comedy Central fare with a focus on male bashing form the sound of it. You can expect crude humor according to SplitSider. The show has a mix of stand up segments form Schumer, on the street segments, and sketches.

I admit to having never watched this show. I typically find most of the content on Comedy Central not that funny. I did have a penchant for South Park in my younger years.

SplitSider writes, "In the opening scene of the new season, Schumer goes the heavy-handed route when acknowledging the longstanding comedy star double standard between men and women. As she anonymously stares from behind a one-sided mirror, a focus group of nearly all white dudes nitpicks and pulls apart her show not on how funny the content is but in terms of Schumer's bangability in her standup segments versus the "skits." While the punchline ultimately comes with her surprise response (after the group is rewarded for their time with energy drinks and beef sticks), Schumer tackles a pile of horrible truths along the way, and she's doubtlessly sat in at least one of these kinds of meetings and learned how to reconcile TV execs' expectations of sex appeal with her own unapologetically brash and bawdy standup act."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
