25 Female Comedians Everyone Should Know


Amy Schumer

Already a full season into her namesake show on Comedy Central, Amy Schumer has earned a name for herself as part of the slew of talent that’s been revitalizing the network (Key and Peele and Kroll Show both share a similar, sketch-oriented premise). She also stole the spotlight during what might be the funniest Girls to date as a friend of Adam’s ex who briefly convinces the romantic lead he’s become a baby daddy. Schumer has excellent taste in collaborators, too; Tig Notaro, who appears later on this list, is a member of Inside Amy Schumer‘s writing staff.
