After three seasons of Inside Amy Schumer and the runaway success of her film Trainwreck, there's no denying that Amy Schumer is one of the top comedic talents working in the country today. Her bitingly insightful commentary on how women are portrayed in media – like in the Inside sketch "Last Fuckable Day," in which Schumer, Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and others take a jab at Hollywood's tendency to stop casting female actors of a certain age in romantic leads – has opened the door for frank discussions about sexism and sexuality. She comes to CFE Arena this week fresh from filming the fourth season of her Peabody Award-winning Comedy Central show, and is currently working on a script with Jennifer Lawrence to follow up Trainwreck. This is an exciting chance to see a performer at the top of her game.

8 p.m. Monday, May 16 | CFE Arena, 12777 N. Gemini Blvd. | 407-823-6006 | cfearena.com | $36-$125
