No, “Inside Amy Schumer” Isn’t Over

August 18, 2016 / Posted by:

On Monday we learned that The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore has been cancelled. Then last night Amy Schumer made it sound like her show also took a spot in the graveyard out back behind Comedy Central. Amy tweeted that they aren’t making Inside Amy Schumer anymore. Some took that to mean that her show is dead, but it’s very much alive. And we know this because Amy Schumer just tweeted it.

This whole mess started a few days ago with an Inside Amy Schumer writer named Kurt Metzger. One of Kurt’s comedian friends had recently been banned from the Upright Citizens Brigade theater for being an alleged serial rapist. Kurt wasn’t happy about those allegations, and he let everyone know in a sarcasm-soaked rant on Facebook. Eventually people started looking at Kurt’s boss Amy Schumer in a “Are you gonna do anything about this?” way. Amy took to Twitter to let everyone know that Kurt Metzger isn’t her problem anymore because he’s no longer a writer on Inside Amy Schumer. In fact, no writers were her problem anymore, because there was no more show.

Comedy Central renewed Amy’s show back in January, so her tweet was confusing. She then made it appear that she was confirming the news by retweeting a little goodbye message from a fan.

I’m guessing Amy was a little tipsy from her “two” glasses of night wine, because this morning she tweeted that her show isn’t over.

She wrapped it up by thanking Comedy Central for letting her take a break before continuing to plug her book The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo. Get those damage control book sales, Amy.

Good lord, so much Twitter drama for what appears to be nothing. I actually feel a little bad for Comedy Central, who I’m sure thought they might have another Dave Chappelle situation on their hands. I bet they spent all last night trying worrying that Amy’s assistant might call them and tell them that Amy was tired of people screaming “Milk milk lemonade” at her shows and that she’d ran away to find herself at an all-you-can-drink bar in Atlantic City.
