Amy Schumer defends herself against joke stealing allegations, will take a polygraph to prove her innocence.
Amy Schumer is really famous and successful now, so people are trying to discredit her every step of the way. A recent video with over 666,000 views compared her material to jokes told by comedians Patrice O'Neill, Kathleen Madigan, Wendy Liebman, and Tammy Pescatelli. The video accused her of stealing the premises for the sketches "Sleep Gym" and "Slap Chef" from Madigan, and jokes in her HBO standup special from O'Neill, Liebman and Pescatelli. Schumer quickly tweeted to defend herself from these claims, and went on Jim Norton's Sirius XM show to clear her name.
