Amy Schumer's interview with an 106-year-old woman is required viewing

Schumer goes deep with Downing. 

The second season of Inside Amy Schumer has already provided some golden moments just four episodes in, and last night’s show proved it’s one of the best comedies on TV right now.

In between sketches, Schumer often interviews people on the street, or sits down with interesting people on set. Last night’s “Amy Goes Deep” segment focused on an 106-year-old woman named Downing, and the conversation between two generations of women was quite illuminating. When asked what changes Downing’s seen for women over the years, she replies, “Well, everybody’s wearing pants.”

Schumer’s become a sex-positive icon, and while she would indeed make a great late-night host, it will be more interesting to see where she takes this show, which, along with Broad City, has Comedy Central more of a level playing field.

Also, if you haven't seen her Call of Duty sketch, please watch it now.

From YouTube to Comedy Central, 'Broad City' keeps it awkward
Before Girls, there was the YouTube series Broad City, starring Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson as two friends in their 20s attempting to navigate New York City and just barely making it. They're Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre alums, so the awkwardness of their interactions feels a little more real and spontaneous. "Making it” informs every episode's narrative.
