I find her sort of funny, but not hilarious... But I'm really tired of hearing crap about what a hero to women she is or whatever.

Her powers of deflection are the perfect approach in a neofeminist moment

I agree with stain. Just because she's a bit chubby for TV...

I think she's kind of funny, but it sort of feels like being funny is her secondary concern after being "edgy." That makes the comedy feel stilted and awkward.

Will Farrell of chicks. 

 

Translation: Not actually that funny. (strangely she looks a bit like Will Farrell too, narrow set eyes maybe?)

From what I have seen she is a bit like Kathy Griffin, just a little more honestly slutty and less exaggerated with the delivery.

Same here. I'm not her biggest fan, but I have at least laughed at something she said.

She was on the Today Show yesterday and they had to end up using the live delay because the made some reference to her vagina

Really? Can't keep it clean for a five minute interview?

They mine the same vein of humor. Women being surprisingly honest and revealing to be more like men than we thought before.

Kathy Griffin has the exaggerated "OH MY GAWD!!!! Look at me." cliche and conscientiously mannered approach. Amy Schumer is more subtle and whispery.

Kathy Griffin way too annoying, in a bad way. Not a WTF way like old Bobcat Golthwaite was.

Seems kind of meta funny sometimes as a female comedian. I've seen stand up bits that were funny. I don't think she's annoying though... just sometimes not funny.

Well, no, to be fair, it's not.  It's the media's fault.  But the narrative surrounding her and how she's just SO awesome for not caring if people say she's fat! or whatever.... is obnoxious.
