Inside Amy Schumer Season 5 Might Be on Hiatus for Awhile
Due to addressing incendiary remarks regarding a rape case in the comedy community by Kurt Metzger, an Inside Amy Schumer writer, Amy Schumer mysteriously said that the show wasn’t happening anymore, then had to explain through a series of tweets that season 5 of Inside Amy Schumer is going to happen, but “…not for the next year at least.”
So, we might have to wait until the end of 2017, maybe even 2018 for new episodes of the critically acclaimed, award winning sketch show.

You’ll be treated to the stand-up of Cameron Esposito, Eugene Mirman, Janeane Garofalo, Beth Stelling, Aparna Nancherla, Kurt Metzger, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Liza Treyger, the Lucas Brothers, Byron Bowers, Sean Patton, Sam Morril, James Davis, Ian Abramson, Sean Donnelly, Thomas Dale, Ahmed Bharoocha and Emo Philips.
Part of a great comedy cultural exchange between the U.S. and Canada comes around during the JFL Montreal Comedy Festival when JFL also shoots their stand-up showcase series, Funny as Hell.
As past episodes have been streamed plenty on Seeso, Seeso has opted to make the series more known in the States, especially because of its heavy use of U.S. talent, to order a sixth season that’ll offered on NBC’s comedy streaming service.
There will be more names that’ll be added to the series during the festival, but that line-up alone is reason enough to go watch it.

Kurt Metzger Tells Stories That Show How Odd It is To Grow Up as a Jehovah’s Witness
“Inside Amy Schumer” Writer Kurt Metzger Interviews Amy Schumer and Vanessa Bayer For “Trainwreck”
More junket interviews should be like this.
At least one of the press junket interviews for Trainwreck has been conducted by someone who isn’t asking the same dull non-interesting questions that comprise most press junket interviews while also being funny.
Kurt Metzger, who writes on Inside Amy Schumer, got to conduct a “completely serious” interview with his boss Amy Schumer and her Trainwreck co-star Vanessa Bayer.
Like we said above, press folks should take a few cues to have more fun at junkets.
Watch it here, then be sure to watch Trainwreck (we saw it and it was great) this Fri. at a theater near you.

Watch What Will Happen If You Give Kurt Metzger a Jay Walking Ticket
The city of San Diego thought it prudent to give one Kurt Metzger a jaywalking ticket while he was walking back from a bar rather than driving.
Little did they know that this great bit on Kurt’s Comedy Central hour long stand-up special White Precious would be the result (spoiler alert: they do not come off as the good guys).
By the way, you should buy White Precious off CC:Stand-Up Direct for $5. It’s pretty damn great.
