Amy Schumer might be a train wreck, but she’s also Hollywood’s “It comedian.” The creator and star of Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer” jokes about society, sex and herself.

“Football Town Nights”
In this parody of “Friday Night Lights,” a small-town football coach (Josh Charles) tells the players they can’t rape women anymore. What if it’s Halloween and she’s dressed like a sexy cat? one asks. What if the girl says yes but changes her mind out of nowhere, like a crazy person? The team comes together and wins the game with the mantra: “Clear eyes, full hearts, don’t rape.”
She’s on a diet, drinking only Diet Snapple, shopping for a dress to wear when she meets a guy in Michigan who thinks she looks like Kate Bosworth. And while this character is hoping to go from a size 8 to a 2, a saleswoman encourages her to buy a size 0 dress: “If I were you, I would make my delusional diet a little more unachievable. Then it will hang on you.”
Here are the different mindsets of a man and woman after a one-night stand: She opens a joint checking account, picks out her wedding cake and orders two cemetery plots. He eats pasta, plays video games and completely forgets about the woman he just slept with.
