The sketch comedy series Inside Amy Schumer is Comedy Central's vehicle to showcase the young, edgy, and often raunchy humor of stand-up comedian, actress, and writer Amy Schumer. Like many successful shows featuring comedians, this series connects footage of stand-up bits with sketches where Schumer essentially plays some version of herself. Schumer's career began to skyrocket in 2007 when she made it to the finals of NBC's Last Comic Standing, eventually finishing in fourth place. Appearing on that reality competition show exposed her comedy and personality to large audiences and to executives in the television industry. Comedy Central was quick to take notice, eventually retaining her services for a comedy special, another reality program, and later on for several Comedy Central Roast installments. Additionally, Schumer made numerous guest appearances on other programs across several networks, allowing her to refine her television presence and to build herself a bit of a cult following. Inside Amy Schumer represents the logical next step for the comedian. No longer a contestant, contributor, or bit player, the program appropriately allows her to be the headliner, giving her enormous control over the writing and overall creativity behind the show. Unlike conventional sitcoms and newer single-camera comedy programs, Schumer's show isn't an ensemble. Instead, the show is entirely driven by Schumer's creative vision and unique sense of humor. There are guest appearances by similarly situated young comedians, but Schumer is the star. As is the case with Schumer's stand-up, the sketches on Inside Amy Schumer largely revolve around dating, sex, her inner monologue, and absurd comedy. The show moves at a quick pace, allowing for numerous sketches and stand-up clips to be featured in one half-hour slot. A single episode often veers from what seems like one subject to another, but ends up returning to some initial unifying joke or idea presented earlier in the episode. Schumer's series, like her comedy in general, isn't for the prudish. Her comedy bits and her outrageous persona gain life by addressing topics that are uncomfortable for some people, but hilarious to others. In nearly every sketch, Schumer has a drink in hand and is often doing or talking about something raunchy. The contrast of her cherubic face and girl-next-door look with her razor sharp tongue and irreverent mind is probably the key reason she was destined to outgrow her supporting roles and become the center of attention.
