Amy Schumer: The Leather Special

Schumer taking absolutely no prisoners in her usual way in this standup show, however it’s fair to say that the set wasn’t her “usual” style – instead getting pretty clinical about sex. Kinda felt a bit like Eddie Murphy’s “Raw” and “Delirious” shows, insofar as it’s the sort of thing that adolescents might clandestinely quote or play to each other behind the bike sheds out of pure disbelief that anyone might record material like that – and Schumer pre-marked it by saying that all good comedians have one special in them where they get dressed up in leather and talk about stuff they probably regret for the rest of their career. I’m on the fence about this one – I didn’t really like the material, but I loved the way she delivers, and the meta-sense of her doing that show at all.
