Ever since Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage during a performance last year, people have apparently been asking Amy Schumer if it’s a “dangerous” time for comedians.
“When they’re asked, ‘Yeah, I’m on the front lines every night,'” the comedian jokes in his new Netflix stand-up show, Amy Schumer: Emergency Contact. But in reality? “No,” says Schumer. “No if it’s not me… Maybe if you’re them and you have that spirit – my people are just like me. we’re tired. Nobody’s messing with anybody. We’re all very tired.”
emergency communication It’s a mixed bag. One minute later, Schumer appeals to Chappelle (and, to be honest, he’s kind of sniffing), and a few minutes later, he’s going to throw a hard punch about the total indifference of our healthcare system to conditions that only affect women. (“… But we have it if your husband wants it. chewable Viagra!) as she did in the 2020 Netflix documentary waiting for Amy Schumer also discusses some of the complications she experienced during pregnancy.
Schumer’s brash charisma shines through in every knowing grin and funny pout, as he wears it while impersonating an unknowing man. I want swallow a pill. Similar to John Mulaney, who opened his latest Netflix special by selecting a young audience and speaking directly to them for occasional comedic effect throughout the night, Schumer chooses 27-year-old Libby and occasionally makes fun of her. fears of aging.
At the same time, some of Schumer’s material may appear outdated as a spiritual or cultural reference. For example: Viewers come to the Chappelle debate through a story about Schumer visiting the home of a “secret” blind millionaire – meaning he is blind, but as one explained to Schumer, “everyone around him is acting like this isn’t happening.”
“You can be so rich that I don’t look like you’re blind?”
Schumer says he found the host cooking in the kitchen, offering to serve them drinks but accidentally spilling it on the floor. “Things like this happen all night,” Schumer says. “People just clean… It took 9 years for dinner to cook.”
Schumer says he found himself accidentally turning on the video during the night: “Anybody watching? Audience?” “How long have you seen him?” (“Fuck it,” Schumer remembered correcting in the second example. “sniffing he.”)
“I don’t think it’s cool to make fun of blind people,” Schumer says. “I don’t think you can be a secret blind. And if there’s a group of people who get really mad at me, it feels like a safe group.”
Finally, Schumer admits he “baited” his audience. She does this again when she talks about Hilaria Baldwin, saying that the fake Spaniard and her husband, Alec, gave their children “all very Spanish names”. jamon And croquet And Flamenco”
But once again, Schumer hopes someone will raise their eyebrows. When she revealed a not-so-new news to her viewers, “Hilaria Etpanaasks the comedian. “Did you really think I gave the impression of a racist Spaniard?”
It seems a little out of place; The pop culture truth that inspired him has been known for years, and Schumer’s retelling isn’t particularly insightful or catchy. But he to do It provides an excellent heartbeat to a piece that Schumer established earlier: Marriage is about finding “someone who can put up with you.”
Unsurprisingly, the best material emergency communication it’s completely personal—like Schumer jokingly comparing himself to Libby, perhaps as a resemblance to his younger self. When she jokes about her new-discovered hump, or her husband’s inability to compliment her, or when she accidentally names her child “Gene Attell Fisher,” aka “genital fissure,” there’s no denying it. In each of these moments, it’s hard to understand why he wasted his precious time on something else.
