Girl-next-door comedian Amy Schumer brings her biting comedic style to Lumière Place this weekend for two shows. Her latest album is "Cutting."

How would you describe your brand of comedy? I hate describing my comedy. But people always say I look sweet but say some cutting stuff with a smile. I am sweet, but it's an adult show.

What do you talk about in your act? I don't like the observational stuff. I like tackling the stuff nobody else talks about, like the darkest, most serious thing about yourself. I talk about life and sex and personal stories and stuff everybody can relate to, and some can't.

What is your new album all about? Nobody cares about comedy albums. The comedian is the only one who cares. If it's a comedy album, you're doing amazing if it sold 5,000 copies in a year. That's really nothing.

You once said you'd like to "open fire" on Harvey Levin of TMZ. Who else would you like to do that to? The list is so long. Rachael Ray. But it isn't in an aggressive way.
