Review: Amy Schumer, Live at the Apollo (HBO)

It may feel like 2015 is Amy Schumer’s year, and we’re all just living in it. But Schumer is living in it, too.

It’s been such a whirlwind for her, you could set it to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire” (and mash it up with a dash of REM’s “It’s The End of the World” for good measure):

Milk milk lemonade, like Lenny Bruce she’s not afraid, feminism, gun control, Apatow, squad goals.

Trailblazer, Trainwreck, Time 100, Oddball Fest, monologues and parodies for MTV and SNL.

Amber Rose, J-Law, 12 Angry Men an Emmy win, book deal, book deal, even better book deal!

She didn’t start the fire, though. The world is not ending just because Amy Schumer pointed out the pointlessless of Zookeeper and the double standards that exist in both Hollywood and our sex lives.
