Congrats on your show Inside Amy Schumer.
I’m excited I’m in it the whole time! I was on 30 Rock once, but my part was whittled down to me sighing.
Are people recognizing you these days?
Yeah, and I have mixed feelings. Right now I’ve got cupcake all over my face. If there were paparazzi following me, they’d be like, “This girl is a monster !” Also, the way I got out of the car right now, if there were a photographer, he would’ve seen my ovaries.
You riff on everything from morning-after pills to rape. That’s risky material.
I’m un- apologetic, but I’m not out to hurt feelings. I think the people who dig [my humor] are really into it.
Dating is a big theme.
Ninety-eight percent of it is based on my life. Like when a guy’s sexting me, I have no idea what to say. I’m like, “Hold me?”
Are guys intimidated by you?
That’s what I tell myself: “Why is no one hitting on me? Oh, they’re intimidated.” But no. I tend to be the aggressor.
Do you have a type?
I’m all over the grid. I’ve dated comics and athletes and deadbeats and baristas. But I like a man. Not, like, an ironic lumberjack, someone who could protect me.
