Who Is the Funniest Amy? Amy Poehler Vs. Amy Schumer
BY: GURU JAY
If you don’t exercise your funny bone, you risk losing your sense of humor. Next time you workout on the treadmill watch a funny clip of Amy Poehler or Amy Schumer. Who is the best blonde comic?
The comedy world is shifting on the axis of comediennes. Comics consider Amy Poehler as one of the best improv acts in the business. Moreover, Amy Schumer’s standup prowess compares to Jerry Seinfeld and Louis CK.
I must disclose I’m a big Saturday Night Live fan. I’ve admired Amy Poehler for a long time. Her Hillary Clinton impersonation is flawless. Although I wasn’t a Park & Recreation addict, sometimes I checked on the Baby Mama actor.
I recently finished watching back-to-back Schumer standup specials. She may have stolen some jokes from Aziz Ansari, but I don’t care. That’s how comedians play their games.
Right now, hot chicks have monopolized comedy. We have Whitney Cummings, Rebel Wilson, Sarah Silverman, and Tina Fey to support. Who can forget Amy’s Secretary Clinton alongside Tina’s Governor Palin on SNL?
Will the blonde reprise her role as presidential candidate when the election cycle comes and goes? Or will a newcomer take the gig? If it were up to me, Amy would impersonate Hillary forever.
I believe Poehler is underrated and Schumer is overrated. The younger blonde still has a lot left to prove. Can Schumer’s onstage success translate over onscreen? Can Poehler perform stronger standup?
Sometimes Schumer seems desperate for attention. You rarely see Eddie Murphy voluntarily making headlines. Let’s blame Kathy Griffin, whose whole strategy consists of shocking people and going overboard.
In all fairness, it’s too early to do an unbiased comparison of the comedians. Plus, Poehler has already established her calling cards with SNL and P&R. So, let’s do a 2 for 1 bundle of joy. Continue tuning in to see Inside Amy Schumer. In this competitive arena, Schumer is currently overcoming obstacles.
