Schumer redeems the audience with coarse laughter

Amy Schumer was already the class clown at school. With self-irony, a sharp tongue and the reversal of gender roles, she became one of the most famous comedians in the USA. Now she is 40 – and she still does not shy away from very direct and coarse language.

When Amy Schumer got married, the comedian was confronted with the question of what she would crack jokes about in her future appearances. “All you talked about was getting nailed,” Schumer quoted as saying on the iconic US show “Saturday Night Live”. The comedy star will be 40 years old on June 1st – and has also expanded its repertoire to break down taboos about pregnancy with the usual sharpness and self-irony.

“I didn’t know that being pregnant could be so difficult. I didn’t know because you sluts were all lying around,” she called out to the audience on her stage show “Growing”. Because the cliché of pregnancies is that you feel sick for a moment and the next moment you paint the nursery full of anticipation. It’s this mix of feminism and mainstream that has made Amy Schumer one of the big names in the US comedy business.

As the daughter of business people – and incidentally also as the cousin of leading Democratic politician Chuck Schumer – she first grew up in New York’s Upper East Side. After her father fell seriously ill, the family moved to Long Island east of the US metropolis. Schumer enjoyed entertaining people from an early age, was considered a class clown at school and studied theater.

“We devour your penises”

She finally made her breakthrough on US television in 2007 on the NBC show “Last Comic Standing”. It was there that she first received national attention for her sharp-mouthedness, as well as the jokes and ease with which she spoke about female sex in prudish America – by rejecting and reversing artificial gender roles. “I am proud that I am a feminist,” said Schumer in one of her skits. “That’s why I’m doing my own gangbang today to prove that women are not objects. Look, men: you don’t enter our vaginas, we devour your penises.”

Schumer always stays within the limits of comedy – perhaps too conventional for some – and redeems her audience quite quickly with coarse laughter, even on serious topics. Schumer expanded her genres – who repeatedly jokes about the mania for slimness and her own somewhat plump figure – steadily.

While she started with the classic stage program, she soon played in TV sketches and series, lent comic characters her voice and also wrote her first film “Trainwreck” in 2015, in which she played the lead role. In addition, Schumer wrote an autobiography in 2016 that made it to the top of the New York Times bestseller list.

And as the mother of her son Gene, whom she and her husband got in May 2019, Schumer will still be able to give the Americans a lot of insights on the way. For example, when bullying boys towards girls is interpreted as affection, “I think one thing you can do when you’re a mom is raise these boys to be a little nicer at a young age. I really think so is a good idea. ”
