Amy Schumer
May 24
| In a recent episode of her Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer, a 12 Angry Men parody featured a jury of stars (Jeff Goldblum, Paul Giamatti) deciding if the comedian is sexy enough to be on TV. She's more than funny enough to have launched the third season of her show. Schumer performs standup at 7 p.m. at Saenger Theatre.
