"Inside Amy Schumer" is the new series featuring Schumer's provocative and hilariously wicked mind, as she explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and the general clusterf*ck that is life. Through a series of scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the street candid interviews, Schumer tackles various themes such as "Denial," "Getting Your Way," and "Threesomes."

"Inside Amy Schumer" premieres Tuesday, April 30 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and is executive produced by Schumer and Daniel Powell with Head Writer Jessi Klein.

Schumer was recently featured as one of Variety's �Top Ten Comics to Watch� and her hit one-hour special, titled "Amy Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff," aired earlier this year on COMEDY CENTRAL and was one of the highest-rated and most-watched stand-up specials in 2012 with over 1.6 million total viewers watching the premiere. In 2011, she released her first album "Cutting" on COMEDY CENTRAL Records. Schumer's film credits include "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley and opposite Parker Posey in "Price Check."
