Much as we like Lisa Lampanelli's crude sense of humor and ruthless jokes, Amy Schumer is a younger, sexier "Queen of Mean." Maybe she rules a province adjacent to Lampanelli's. Thirty-year-old Schumer, a Long Island native, began performing comedy in 2004 in New York City. She initially pursued a career as an actress. In 2007, she was a contestant on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" competition, in which she placed fifth, two spots better than funnyman Doug Benson.
Schumer has continued to ascend in the comedy world, making several appearances on "The Opie & Anthony Show" and in April 2010 performing her own "Comedy Central Presents" special. She's also the first female comic to perform on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and "The Ellen Degeneres Show." And with her routine at last night's "Roast of Charlie Sheen" on Comedy Central, where she dropped a joke that may or may not have crossed the line, she's on her way to becoming a household name. We also happen to think that she's very attractive. Check out the following photos and see for yourself.
Those legs could put her in a ZZ Top video.
