Amy Schumer turned down The Daily Show

Earlier this year, we learned that Jon Stewart would be leaving Comedy Central’s long-running news satire program The Daily Show. Comedy Central ran the gamut of talented comedians to replace Stewart on the show, including names like Chris Rock and Amy Poehler, before they picked correspondent Trevor Noah to take the gig.

However, one name that we didn’t hear about officially as a candidate was Amy Schumer, the comedienne who has skyrocketed to fame over the past few years thanks to her stellar sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer. It turns out Schumer was offered the job, but she actually ended up turning it down. Find out why Amy Schumer turned down The Daily Show after the jump! Read More »

Amy Schumer fairy tale

It seems like everyone’s hopping on the live-action fairy tale bandwagon these days. We’ve already seen a new Cinderella, a new Sleeping Beauty, and two different Snow Whites; the next few years will also bring updated versions of Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, and Mulan.

In fact, even Amy Schumer is getting in on the trend… though in typical Amy Schumer form, her live-action fairy tale turns out to be less “sweet and fanciful” and more “hilarious and upsetting.” Watch the Inside Amy Schumer fairy tale sketch after the jump. Read More »

Aaron Sorkin's The Foodroom

The latest episode of Inside Amy Schumer includes an incredible parody of a faux Aaron Sorkin television series The Foodroom.

In the latest drama from Aaron Sorkin, the manager of a fast food restaurant defends his old-school ways against the increasing pressure to offer healthy options.

The Good Wife/Sports Night star Josh Charles plays J.J. MacAhoy, a patriotic fast-food restaurant manager. Amy Schumer plays a fast-food employee who has a realization that echos a common complaint about Sorkin’s The Newsroom. Watch Aaron Sorkin’s The Foodroom television parody embedded after the jump.
