Amy Schumer

31, Comedian; star of Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer" Ten years after graduating from Towson University, Amy Schumer is enjoying a breakthrough year in comedy and pop culture. Her weekly Comedy Central series, "Inside Amy Schumer," debuted in April to some of the highest ratings in the history of the channel that features Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. She's guest starring on HBO's "Girls" and is selling out concert halls on a 30-city tour. As to what she's learned on her climb up the comedy-club ladder: "I think all comedians value control. That's a big chunk of why we get into it. ... But what I think I've learned is that you have no control. ... You just do the best you can, and then it's out of your hands." -- David Zurawik
