For the first time in my life, the lead harpy of modern comedy, Amy Schumer made me laugh. I caught this headline over at MSN.com.
Yep, Amy Schumer’s act finally caught up with her. She was doing a show when she took a break from the ceaseless cackling about her vagina (seriously, the is the punchline of most of her jokes – thank you third wave feminism for making the word “vagina” a punchline) to go on an anti-Trump and anti-Gun screed.
On Sunday night, about 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer’s show at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, after she called Donald Trump, among other things, an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.” It’s unclear if the audience had never heard Schumer’s comedy before, or if they’d just completely had it with politics.
I know MSM is run by a bunch of liberals because in no other universe is referring to a presidential candidate as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster” a joke.
Feeling that she hadn’t made it clear how much she loathes people on the other side of the aisle, she decided to go for broke and completely ruin her show.
She made it clear she doesn’t understand how people can support Trump. At one point she asked for a Trump supporter — preferably one with sleeves, she she told security personnel — to join her up on stage to explain their enthusiasm for Trump. One fellow did, but he said he was voted for Trump mainly because doesn’t trust Clinton. When some audience members booed, the actor and comedian invited them to leave and also asked security to remove anyone booing.
That’s right sweetheart. Insult your audience, but not in an insult comedy way, pick a fight with them, and then throw people out for booing the fact that they paid to see a stand-up routine and not the worlds worst episode of Hardball.
This is what happens when a celebrity becomes more famous for their political rantings than art form. They throw their political rantings out non stop, the perfect storm of smug self righteousness and ignorance.
The only thing about this story that I find unbelievable is that Amy Schumer drew a crowd of 20,000 people. I can’t believe that there are 20,000 people that think she is funny.
As I grow older, I realize just how brilliant and prophetic South Park was. They predicted this comedy routine about 10 years ago. My only hope is that she continues this type of insufferable behavior until her career implodes and the only person that are willing to host Amy Schumer at an event is Shannon Watts. Then we’ll never have to hear from her again.
