amy schumer's awards speech is better than most stand-up sets

the year of schumer continues

Let's invent a rule where Amy Schumer wins every weird from now until the end of time. That means more acceptance speeches like this one, which Schumer gave at Glamour's Women of the Year awards in London, after winning their Trailblazer award. There were audible gasps from the audience when Schumer let fly some incredibly graphic—and incredibly hilarious—observations about life in the biz as a female comic and the realities of women's magazines.

But no matter how hard she tried to offend the crowd, they loved every second of it, and in typical Schumer fashion, there was a message of empowerment underneath it all.
