An Excellent Two Part Critique of Amy Schumer’s Comedy on Youtube

April 30, 2019 4 comments

A few weeks ago, I came across an excellent critique of Amy Schumer on YouTube. However, it was only the first of a supposedly two(?) part series. Well.. the second part was posted yesterday and it is as good as the first. As regular readers know, it is my firm belief that most comedians are not funny. My views on the talent (or its lack) in female comedians are also well known. Also, I once wrote a post about how most female comedians were intrinsically unfunny.

The person who made the YT videos I am linking to also seems to think along those lines. And while I have not seen every video he has posted, these two seems to be especially good. It does not hurt that he dissects the career of possibly the most overrated and incompetent female comic of this decade, aka Amy Schumer. The first video goes into some depth about the many factors and social milieu which facilitated her rapid rise in public consciousness.

The first video is almost 44 minutes long and covers many topics which surround her rise to fame (or infamy). And ya, it goes into detail about her tendency to steal jokes and why so many male comics are reluctant to call it out. The short version is that it has a lot to do with her being a white woman who fucked the right guys in addition to dabbling in diversity and identity politics.

The second part is about 40 minutes long and goes into detail about how she plays the diversity and identity cards. Specifically, it details how her “comedy” acts are now almost exclusively about virtue signalling and making “woke” people feel self-righteous and good about supporting “woke” female “comics”. She is basically selling the contemporary version of catholic indulgences. Then again, nobody went broke underestimating the capacity for self-delusion displayed by american sheeple. I have a feeling that readers are going to enjoy this two-part series about that woman.
