Amy Schumer: the White Carlos Mencia

I caught Franchesca Ramsey rationalize Amy Schumer’s joke stealing a while ago and it’s been bugging me ever since. She steals jokes but she works her ass off, so she’s absolved? You’re a champion against the corruption of civil rights but this form of corruption is fine as long as you work really hard to get that material that doesn’t belong to you out to the masses via touring? Sorry honey, but as someone who speaks from experience, joke stealing is joke stealing.

I actually had a comedian comment on a Myspace blog post that they were going to use a quip of mine or a joke I cracked in their material. I made a joke at the expense of Idubbbztv and watched it get stolen via Reddit an hour after I tweeted it.

I don’t really get a lot of copy cats when it comes to my material, probably because of the fact that I’m not afraid to confront anyone who steals my work. I haven’t been blogging for 20+ years and done all of the other forms of writing I have submitted out into the universe just to have my craft hijacked. I am not even the fastest quipster out there anyway. I’m the quiet girl at a party who hardly interacts then winds up making a crack, a comment or a clap back loud enough for someone to hear it and start laughing. I am no stand up comic. I just like to interject comedy into my every day life because I genuinely like to make people laugh (when I’m in a good mood that is). You kind of have to put me under serveillance in order to catch something really funny from me. People with short attention spans normally get tired of me.

I take it in stride. I can always make new friends and aquaintances wherever I go. I just don’t appreciate getting ripped off as I go.
