    Sounds like you hate her more than her comedy.

    No, but she is comical when trying not to be.

    I appreciate a lot of comedians so don't find being funny to be a high bar. She's a pro and passes muster. She works hard. She's not Carol Burnett but neither is anyone else.

    I think the Schumer is hilarious. Not so Black or McCarthy.

    Wish she would just do what she's paid to do - walk on stage and try to make people laugh....

    Not the least bit funny.

    But she seems like a nice person, her dad has MS and she just bought back the
    farm that he lost to bankruptcy when he became ill, and gave it to him as an
    X-mas gift.

    I don't find her attractive or funny. Seems like a bitter person, IMO.

    I think she's pretty funny. Not up there with Carlin or the greats, but funny. I'm more of a Jim Gaffigan fan, though.

    BTW, I've seen a lot of comics in their prime; Rickles, Martin, Rivers, Rock, Carlin, Mandel, Diller, among others. I really don't "get" Amy's comedy at all.

    I don't enjoy her style of humor.... the self deprecating fat girl who talks like she's slutty.

    I sometimes find her amusing or charming but feel she tries too hard at funny and it doesn't work - like her material is not quite there for me

    Yeah, she's funny. This thread may be funnier, though, or maybe I mean just sad.

    I don't find her humorous at all. Let alone funny. That's just my opinion.
    A ton of people find Louis CK funny. I simply do not. Though he is humorous at times IMO.
