ARTS Pick: Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer exposes the sexy side of female comedy at The Paramount.  (Publicity photo)

Amy Schumer’s comedy is sweet like saccharine, and crude enough to shame a sailor. Leaving no taboo untouched, she charms her way through an act, oftentimes turning her most eviscerating jibes on herself resulting in some of her best material. Schumer’s rise into the upper echelon has been swift. She gave testimony at the roasts of Roseanne and Charlie Sheen, appeared on “30 Rock,” “Conan,” and “Last Comic Standing,” and is the creator, writer, and star of her own Comedy Central show, “Inside Amy.”

Sunday 10/21 $24.50. 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St. Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
