The “Schumer” pick-up continues a successful streak of 2013 launches for the #1 brand in comedy joining last month’s renewals of “Nathan for You” and “The Jeselnik Offensive” and the previously announced renewal of “Kroll Show.”

“Amy Schumer,” said Alterman.  “She’s hilarious.  I also love her comedy."

"I am so proud of our show,” added Schumer.  “And ecstatic to get to work with all these assholes again."

COMEDY CENTRAL’s highest-rated series premiere for the year, “Inside Amy Schumer,” launched on April 30 and is currently in the middle of its first season with new episodes premiering on Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.  The series, which was created by Schumer and Daniel Powell, who executive produce along with head writer Jessi Klein, consistently finishes as the top-rated entertainment show in all of television in its time slot among COMEDY CENTRAL’s core young male demographics (Men 18-34 and Men 18-24) and is the #1 entertainment show on cable in its time slot among Adults 18-49.

“Inside Amy Schumer” provides an intimate look into the mind of comedian Amy Schumer, who, through a series of scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man- on-the-street interviews, explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and the general clusterf*ck that is life.  Joining Schumer for the first season of her breakout series are a roster of well-known actors and comedians including Jon Glaser, Michael Showalter, Amber Tamblyn, Michael Ian Black, Rob Schneider, Abby Elliott, Tig Notaro, Tom Papa, Lisa Lampanelli, Dave Attell, Will Janowitz, Nikki Glaser, Sara Schaefer and Missi Pyle.

Behind-the-scenes, “Inside Amy Schumer” features an all-star team culled from the best of today’s comedy scene including a writers’ room led by Klein (head writer) and staffed by Tig Notaro, Kyle Dunnigan, Kurt Metzger, and Gabe Liedman.  The series is produced by Levity Entertainment’s Itay Reiss and Derek Van Pelt and directed by Neal Brennan (“Chappelle’s Show”), Steven Tsuchida (“The Sarah Silverman Program”) and John Lee (“Delocated”) and features original music composed by Questlove. Production services are provided by Jax Media, a New York based film and television production company, helmed by veteran producer Tony Hernandez.  Brooke Posch is the Executive in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

    Nice. Everyone check this out

  • KevinY

    Nice! This is basically the female version of “Louie.” I find it more enjoyable than Louie though because it’s not as morbid.

  • Annonimous

    Louie is dramedy. This is sketch show like Key & Peele.

  • romo

    She needs to lose weight.

  • merrrranga

    @Annonimous

    how is Louie even a little bit a drama??

    also, this is not really like Louie. one could argue that Louie is kinda a sketch show. also, they both had stand-up interludes but so did Seinfeld. they are very, very different in tone and style.

  • Kyle R

    @merrrange

    Ummmmm…have you seen Louie? There are some episodes that are very much like a drama. It’s definitely a dramedy.

  • merrranga

    @Kyle

    you are completely wrong. you have an incorrect definitions of drama and comedy.

    read Northrop Frye – The Anatomy Of Criticism. (you can google it)

    then you can come back and talk about the definitions of a show with some actual knowledge.

    This show is pretty good. I love the bumpers between segments and this show is 2000x better than Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time.

  • jlog

    It’s pretty damn funny. Last week’s “Porn from a Woman’s Point of View” was so hilariously disgusting.
