‘Inside Amy Schumer’ Writer Tells Her Story With Same Funny Flair Of The Show

The success of the show Inside Amy Schumer relies heavily on the comedic chops of the star. But the writing is the work of a few funny women, including head writer Jessi Klein. 

The comedy writer and stand-up comedian’s work on the show was honored with an Emmy in 2015, which was during a time of many other changes in her life. She writes about those, and the other funny anecdotes that fuel her work in the new essay collection You’ll Grow Out of It. 

Morning Shift talks to Klein about the book and some of her favorite sketches on the show.
