When it comes to an Amy Schumer show or movie, you can pretty much guarantee it’s going to be an in-your-face, no-holds-barred comedy. Schumer loves a certain over-the-top schtick—and we love when she gives it to us. But that’s why it came as a huge surprise that her latest performance was a total departure from what we’ve come to expect.
On this week’s episode of Stream On, PureWow’s new weekly entertainment podcast that reveals what to watch (and what to skip), co-hosts Rachel Gulmi and Phil Mutz dive into quite a few of the buzziest viewing options out there. They reveal whether The Bubble on Netflix is worth all the hype and if Elle Fanning’s The Girl from Plainville on Hulu is actually any good.
But perhaps most surprising is Mutz’s pick for “Hit of the Week”: Amy Schumer’s Life & Beth on Hulu. Mutz, PureWow’s VP of News & Entertainment, dives into exactly why Schumer’s performance is raw and riveting, while still maintaining the level of smart comedy we want from her. Hear his full review below at the 4:46 timestamp.
