Amy Schumer is easily one of the fastest rising female stars in comedy. Her girl-next-door looks meets raunchy comedy routine has worked out well for her. She’s been on all the late-night talk shows (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, etc.), featured in the biggest publications (Rolling Stone, The New York Times, etc.) and her one-hour stand-up special, Mostly Sex Stuff, was Comedy Central’s second-highest rated special last year. On April 30 her own show (also on Comedy Central) premiered called Inside Amy Schumer (you can watch the hilarious first episode at For the last couple of months, Schumer has taken her act on the road, and on Thursday, May 2, she’ll be at Crest Theatre, located at 1013 K Street in Sacramento. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $32.50 before fees, available online at This would make for a fun night out with a group of friends or a great date night, although probably not a great first date as most of Schumer’s material deals with sex and other generally awkward topics that might just be too weird for a new couple. Or, heck, maybe it’ll be a good show for new couples to attend. Might as well just get those morning-after-pills-jokes out of the way early!
