The best Amy Schumer quotes are not just the comedian being funny, they serve as some pretty sensible life advice and in some cases, PSAs. Because Schumer is fearless, she’s never afraid to tell it like it is from her particular point of view. That view resonated with millions of people and Schumer catapulted to the top. Once she got there, she remained the same, a funny and blunt voice of feminism that makes people feel normal and even good about themselves. 

Say she’s in a room full of high-powered Hollywood types. Leave it to Amy Schumer to say the most dead-on, inappropriate, yet truthful things. She’s not intimidated by status or wealth. You could be running for president or just some guy on the street and Amy Schumer is going to be Amy Schumer, no matter what. This New Yorker doesn’t care what anyone thinks and toughened up even further on the comedy circuit as a stand-up. 

The funniest of the Amy Schumer best quotes are the ones that boldly speak the truth. Schumer’s truth is to be yourself and stop pretending like you shower more than you actually do. She also believes that you decide when you’re attractive, not anyone else. Also, she knows exactly how to turn someone’s hate into an Emmy.

The big draw of Amy Schumer is that she’s genuine. She’s not interested in anyone else’s standards. Unless those standards are realistic and achievable, nah. As for expectations of female comedians and actors, she’s not afraid to take on weight, beauty, and double standards.

“I didn't know to question myself. Which is great... Every day I'm just working to get back to that place, of like, 'I'm a human being and I'm not going to apologize for something that people might see as a flaw.' Like, people make fun of my teeth. I have these little rabbit teeth. And I love them, I think they're really cute. But everyone will put a picture of me next to a chipmunk and things like that. But, no, I don't want to look like everyone else. I want to be myself and embrace that. [Big applause.] Thank you.”

If you have bad taste in men, Amy Schumer feels you. She did a sketch that serves as an instructional video on how to treat your friends if you are, in fact, dating an a**hole and need to talk about it endlessly.

Schumer’s advice: Don’t. Don’t be that friend who seeks out awful guys and then won’t stop talking about them. If you can’t stop dating terrible guys at least ask your friend about their life for a minute and actually listen to the answer.
