Watch: Amy Schumer Riffs on Hollywood's Bullsh*t Beauty Standards, Being Labeled a "Sex Comic"

In a five-minute mic drop of a set, Comedy Central star (and Women and Hollywood favorite) Amy Schumer delivered a stellar, unabashedly feminist monologue about her surprise at being hired for the movie she wrote (“Trainwreck”) and her irritation at being called a “sex comic” because she happens to be a woman who talks about sex (“I feel like a guy could get up here and literally pull his dick out, and everyone would be, ‘He’s a thinker!'”). But Schumer spent most of her time on the “Night of Too Many Stars” stage talking about how film executives’ orders to “stop eating” doesn’t really jive with her lazy approach to, well, everything.
