Amy Schumer has been in the news recently due to her recent comedy show in Tampa, FL. Why? Because she used her platform to express her disdain for presidential candidate Donald Trump. I am not going to get political here as that is not what this is about. It’s America and you’re free to say whatever you want about whoever you want. Why? We are a nation that is built on free speech. Talk away my friend.
Now to the meat and potatoes of this article. Let’s dive into the following.
7 Reasons You Should Avoid Amy Schumer
1. Her acting is terrible
I mean have you seen her movie Trainwreck? That movie was a train wreck. You couldn’t watch it for more than a few minutes at a time. Now granted, every movie one is going to make is not going to be a box office smash, but really, that’s the best you got? Also, you only get one shot to make a good first impression, thus my observation of her acting skills in that movie, didn’t move the needle for me if you know what I mean. God bless her for being able to act though, because I couldn’t do it to save my life, which is why I am hacking away at this keyboard, talking to you.
2. Does not stick to what she does best – comedy
When you’re a celebrity you have a platform like no other to do what you wish. Which is awesome. When people go pay money to see your comedy show, stick with the comedy. Don’t ruin it for others when you start to go all political on them, expressing your thoughts, opinions, etc. Nobody wants to hear that stuff anyway, let alone at a comedy show. You know everyone in the country is sick of that crap. People come to see you as you’re funny, give them what they came for.
3. She is forthright and honest
I have to say I admire all people who’re this way. Unfortunately, pretty much every human being on the planet does not like honesty. They don’t like the blunt, honest truth. The truth hurts and most people cannot handle the truth. Much like the famous quote from Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men. “You can’t handle the truth” Which is 100% correct. So, this is another reason to avoid her.
4. She tells the truth in her shows
People pay money to go see a comedy show to be entertained, and they want mindless entertainment for the time they’re there. We definitely don’t care much about hearing the truth. Fact is we don’t want truth of any sort. Instead, we want to laugh so hard, we come close to literally peeing in our pants. Life is serious enough and every day the truth slaps us in the face when we get up in the morning. Or wait is that little Timmy hitting you in the face because it’s time to get up and make him breakfast? Skip the truth, give us the laughs.
5. Can’t handle criticism
If you do a comedy show and you touch on sensitive topics you’re bound to get booed, heckled, as it relates to the subject matter. Which begs the question. Why did you say those things? Because you knew that what you were about to say was going to elicit that type of response from the audience. You wanted a reaction. So, why on god’s green earth did she, I guess encourage was the term used in the New York Times article about this security to throw those hecklers out of the arena? I mean come on. If you said something that is controversial, then you should expect to receive some form of criticism and be able to take it. As the old saying goes – you can dish it out, but can’t take it.
6. Advocates for Hillary Clinton
Depending on who you are this may be a reason unto itself. I cannot speak for you, but there is a portion of the American people that may want to steer clear of Amy Schumer or another reason to avoid her.
