>Why I Love Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer, starting a new season of Inside Amy Schumer (Comedy Central, April 1, 10:30 p.m. ET/PT), is a booby-trapped package: She alone knows what trip wire makes her humor so explosively funny. Frankly sexual but girlishly coy, she’s especially good at playing women who mask their anger (at men, at themselves) with polite sweetness. In a skit about diets, she confesses, “I was cyberbullying my niece on Instagram the other day, and I literally ate 15 mini muffins. I am so bad!”
