Amy Schumer is one of the smartest, funniest and most exceptional voices in comedy right now. Thanks to her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer and her upcoming film Trainwreck (directed by comedy king Judd Apatow), Schumer is off the charts right now — and when you’re that much of a big deal in comedy, an HBO special is inevitable. Schumer is set to headline her very first comedy special for HBO, and she’s landed someone to direct who’s more than a little familiar with the network.

Amy Schumer had a sparkling enough day with yesterday’s official Season 4 renewal of Inside Amy Schumer, and all before anyone managed to catch the Season 3 premiere. Many a highlight are making the round, but none so spot-on and hysterical as Inside Amy Schumer’s Friday Night Lights parody, “Football Town Nights.”

Amy Schumer has built a sizable fan base thanks to her Comedy Central series, which showcases her specific brand of honest and often subversive sense of humor. There’s no denying her intense relatability — and it’s that quality that serves her well in her debut film, Trainwreck. Written and produced by Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow, the film centers on a fictional version of Schumer. We’ll never know how fictional this Amy is (and we shouldn’t), which makes her cinematic alter ego all the more appealing.

The Oscars can be very confusing and frustrating. So, if you're looking for an alternative, look no further than the MTV Movie Awards, which unveiled their 2015 nominations today. Oddly, they too are confusing and frustrating, albeit for completely different reasons.

It’s here! The first trailer for Judd Apatow’s ‘Trainwreck,’ written by and starring the consistently delightful Amy Schumer! The film also marks something of a departure for Apatow, whose films have been mostly male-oriented. This time around, Schumer takes the spotlight as a successful, independent woman whose love life is a mess thanks to her deeply-ingrained aversion to monogamy. If we didn’t know any better, this could easily be a Paul Feig film—and that’s a compliment.
