Critic Reviews for Inside Amy Schumer Season 4

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

Schumer is as brazen and politically conscious as ever, but this season feels less personal and less urgent than last season...and more formulaic-sometimes even bordering on lazy.

For Inside Amy Schumer to bounce back, it perhaps needs to veer away from her newfound superstardom and back toward the blunt, abrasive honesty that made her a success to begin with.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Between seasons 3 and 4, Schumer became a bonafide movie star, but instead of treating "Inside" like a day job, she's continuing to use it as a platform. Sometimes she strikes out, but she's still got a hell of a swing.

Still funny without being revelatory, the new season may represent a crossroads of sorts for Schumer: Can the former underdog strike the same rich comedic veins now that she's a star?

They're all funny and - even better than that - smart. Fans will be pleased. The hotness will only grow hotter.

Top Critic

It's not clear if Season 4's relative mildness is a result of Schumer's split focus...but Amy still packs in plenty of solid laughs.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Schumer's dark, violent sketches make us laugh even as they pack a much-needed gut punch. This isn't to say the current season of Inside Amy Schumer isn't funny. She adeptly and hilariously spoofs broad pop culture genres.

Jun 1, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Inside Amy Schumer upped the level of naughty sketch comedy last season and seemingly keeps up the pace as season four starts.

Apr 22, 2016 | Full Review…

So there's nothing terribly bad about the new Inside Amy Schumer. But there's also no sketch here that comes close to previous-season wonderfulness.

Apr 21, 2016 | Full Review…

All the sketches are well-produced, well-cast, and well-acted, but most are disappointingly underwritten, unfocused, or repetitive.

Audience Reviews for Inside Amy Schumer: Season 4

  • Feb 21, 2018
    Another left extremist with no talent, Amy fails in both appearance and credibility
  • Jun 20, 2016
    What made Amy Schumer's show so appealing when it started were her fresh and clever perspectives on feminism, femininity, and modern society's attitudes toward women. Amy cast herself as someone our culture finds relatively overweight and unattractive compared to other female celebrities; an outsider able to skewer our collective notions of what women should and should not be while being both likable and relatable. Season 4 finds Amy fresh off a hit movie, her own exposure growing daily, and trying to come to grips with presenting the humorous aspects of how her life is changing. So far the new stories presented by Hollywood insider Amy aren't that funny and she too often falls back on female anatomy jokes that fail to deliver the same level of transgressive humor she seemed to be able to roll out at will. While I think what is happening to Amy is more akin to the direction Eddie Murphy's career took (supremely talented and funny person that began choosing bad material) as opposed to the fate that befell Chevy Chase (a seemingly talented person who just seemed to cease being funny), I think Amy is savvy enough to read the tea leaves and get back to using her unique insight in ways that will make us all consistently laugh again.

    Not funny anymore. Honestly, some of it is just offensive to women. For example a female president can do her job on her period? How is that feminist or funny?

    Horrible compared to the first 3 seasons.
  • May 27, 2016
    It really is remarkable how steep a cliff a "groundbreaking" show can swan dive off when they finally have to be original. It's been unequivocally proven that the starlet is a hack joke thief and sketches have been reproduced nearly line-for-line and shot-by-shot. Now they have to come up with legitimately unique premises.. and wow.. it STINKS. I can't wait to see her polygraph test episode that she promised to prove that she's never lifted things exactly from other comedians. She's so brave. And by brave I mean just awful. Please go away.

    There are a lot of "parallel thinking" happenings in this show. Whatever's seemingly original fails to communicate any distinguishable message.
  • May 19, 2016
    It's still very, very funny, but not MUST WATCH hilarious. Perhaps the celebrity backlash agsint her is affecting other people's opinions, but when I watch this show I still feel all fuzzy and happy.

    Amy needs a new promoter. Mike Berkowitz doesn't have a clue!! I attempted to contact Mark to discuss my concerns, but his response was totally inappropriate and immature. (You can contact Mark at mberkowitz@apanewyork.com) If her commercials are any reflection of her latest season, I am totally NOT INTERESTED! Frankly, she is being depicted as a whore and not just a "risque comedian" (as she formerly excelled with).
