This past year has not been kind to Amy Schumer.
The comedienne made fun of Donald Trump during a show which caused hundreds to walk out. She was called a racist for parodying a Beyoncé video. Then, Schumer got dropped by Bud Light for being too liberal. Now, the actress is getting panned by fans and critics for her latest comedy special on Netflix.
“Amy Schumer: The Leather Special” runs 57 minutes, but is 57 minutes too long — the special has received an aggregate rating of 1 1/2 stars out of five total.
Most of the 1,141 reviews (as of this writing) from Netflix members gave Schumer’s special one star. Here’s a small sample of those reviews.
Absolutely horrible. Amy is 1 special away from being broke and homeless. Female comics are the best! Amy is not…
This is as funny as an autopsy… as graphic and as funny as I would imagine a public beheading to be.
What the eff happened, Amy? Wife and I were actually upset at over how how unfunny and actually kinda sad this was, and we consider ourselves fans, I mean we saw Trainwreck at the theater and bought the blu-ray. This was painful.
Odd. She pauses to accommodate for the applause after the jokes….. but there are no jokes so there is no applause. She gets some pity applause, but it’s very odd to watch her on the stage. Full disclosure, I did not watch the entire thing, I just couldn’t.
Literally terrible. Do not waste your time. I attemppted to watch this sh#@ comedy special and it literally made my want to just spend the day ourside. >:|
when your friend is telling a funny story. . . but its not . thats how i felt watching this.
She is awful. NFlix better find a way to refund the last 56 minutes of my life. Just. . . just awful.
Even other comedians didn’t find it funny.
Of course, there are a few reviewers who gave the Netflix special four or five stars and commented on how the special was “all around good” and that they’re seeing “too many negative reviews.”
Schumer has been accused of stealing other comedians’ jokes, which is perhaps the biggest faux pas you can make in the industry. Whether it’s her politics or her horribly unfunny jokes, Schumer needs to take a break for a while.
