Three comedians are accusing Amy Schumer of stealing their jokes.
Monday night a single tweet from comedian Wendy Liebman ignited a bit of a firestorm over allegations that Amy Schumer has been stealing jokes, not only from Liebman but also from Kathleen Madigan and Tammy Pescatelli. The original tweet from Liebman, which has since been deleted, said “Between Amy Schumer doing 1 of my best jokes on her HBO special and this meme of my joke, I’m done with social media.” The meme (which was unrelated to Schumer) depicted an image of a pinup style woman quoting one of Liebman’s jokes. Writer, director and comedian Chuck Martin replied to Liebman’s tweet suggesting she talk to Kathleen Madigan, implying that perhaps Madigan had a similar beef. Now looped in to the conversation on twitter, Madigan replied, “wow. finally. get ready for a shit storm” and then a second tweet saying she has a split screen showing a “disgusting amount of stealing” that she will release adding “game over. I’m done.”
Tammy Pescatelli joined the conversation posting links to the allegedly stolen material and the original material that Schumer supposedly relied on. The women allege Schumer used stolen material in her stand up act, her movie Trainwreck, and her critically acclaimed sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer.
Called out by respected female comedians for joke theft. Will Amy Schumer's career tank?
hopefully. depends how her acting career goes.
don't forget Robin Williams stole a shit ton of jokes from other comedians. of course he had acting talent and was likable by the public
Amy is a cunt only "le stronk womyn" like her now
>at least Cosby knocked his victims out b4 he raped them.
Kathleen Madigan and Tammy Pescatelli were both on Comedy Central a lot in the 2000s.
They're not household names, but they're not nobodies either.
Tammy is a lot funnier than Amy Schumer. Kathleen is one of the most unfunny women I've ever seen.
>this meme of my joke
>The meme in question
Do the normies have to take everything from us? Memes and the internet in general should never be mentioned in print. It's just so fucking cringeworthy.
The self appointed comedy police is retired. He realized he's a hack with no authority on the subject. He might issue a statement that references parallel thinking or easy premises, but he would never accuse a woman of stealing jokes. He's a cuck and a half.
>calling him out
I'm not a fan of Mencia but what Rogan did was pretty douchy, doesn't matter if he's right. The arrogance of Ari Shaffir too. Like nobody ever thought about "If we ban mexicans and build a wall, who is going to build it?".
Did you even finish reading OP?
It was way more than 3 jokes dipshit.
>The women allege Schumer used stolen material in her stand up act, her movie Trainwreck, and her critically acclaimed sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer.
I'll be honest family that's a pretty hot story.
If it's true.
Fucking Ant. RIP.
"memes" are now used in fast food commercials and anti-smoking ads.
Sorry faggots, memes are mainstream. Soon Clinton will be posting pepes to try and connect with the young hip voters out there.
tweet the shit at rogan then. He definitely checks his twitter, and he hates joke stealers. He doesn't have any friendship for schumer. Tweet him enough that he talks about it in just one podcast. Or tweet Redban, maybe easier for him to comment on it in a podcast
>This vid goes viral as a backlash to Schumer's cuntiness
>Thousands of SJWs end up listening to O&A for the first time in their lives
>Collective tumblr-wide triggering occurs from hearing their callous humor
This should be fun
Amy Schumer is a hero, fuck off /tv/
PS Lena Dunham is great too
Nothing, repeat at will but don't think it's creativity worthy of praise that the industry relies on, it's just mimicry which anyone can do and no one looks up to if they find out they were duped.
So maybe she was butthurt because she isn't really a whore, but rather stole some whore's jokes about being a whore?
Nobody gave a fuck that mencia stole some jokes. What really killed his career is people finding out that he was actually a white man. Now while I wouldn't be really surprised to hear that Schumer is a man I don't expect it to come out.
I dunno, it's not like people can't make the same jokes, years apart.
I once made a series of jokes based on news that week, and it turns out everything I said was a one for one copy of Russel Howard on his BBC3 show, which I never watched.
Needless to say I can't live it down and have a rep for stealing jokes with my mates.
Remember when she stole some of Patrice's bits and everyone gave her a pass because, "They were hack street jokes that everyone tells"?
Remember how everyone who said they were hack street jokes claims that Patrice was the greatest comic of all time and Amy Schumer is a phenomenal comedian?
How can that be if they both tell hack street jokes?
Every female "comedian" has a repetoire of jokes revolving around sex, their vagina, men and fuck all else.
I'm not surprised they're accusing each other of stealing jokes, how many vagina jokes can you possibly make without repeating what someone else said at some point?
she ''ripped off'' a bit that Patrice didn't even invent. the sex names thing had been around for a long time, and it's more an Aristocrats type joke.
it's actually one of the few weak and sort of hacky bits he did.
>every female comedian
Literally a female clone of Sinbad
If that's the case then denying the fact that Amy Schumer steals jokes is an admission that she's a terrible comic whose jokes are so mundane and infantile a child could do write her act.
The ironic thing is that when the movie actually came out, the plot was actually about the women running away scarred while the man that rescued all those damsels in distress convinced them to take the fight to the enemy.
If she ripped off jokes from men, you'd never hear the end of it.
Joe Rogan would call her a cunt.
Opie and Jim already in damage control ages ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRyOvIya_Dk
>op reminded me about Mencia
>decide to look him up to see what he's been up to in the last few years
>In 2011, Mencia stated in an interview that he had been in therapy due to accusations of plagiarism
So plagiarism therapy is a thing
you're posting on a worldwide famous website on the board where 90% of discussion is on Hollywood, literally the most mainstream and normie subject.
But she's not funny. Who the fuck would admit to writing those fucking jokes?
>calling a macro a meme
I fucking hate the mainstream.
Shit, where are my hipster images?
It's funny because their arguments are invalid now
Also the video style is EXACTLY like the videos where they make a bunch of kids say their arguments for them. Same people behind it no doubt.
I fucking hate the revival of "I'm such a nerd" culture with the resurgence of Marvel and Star Wars. Mainly because I hated dealing with the socially inept retards who fawn over "nerd" things before they were popular and now everyone and there mother loves Marvel, Star Wars, Space Trek and comic books.
What happened to lopez? Not saying the same thing will happen here, just curios and lena dunham is still getting work afaik even though she admitted to pedophilia. Women can get away with a lot of shit in hollywood
