Yes, you read that right. When asked how her on-stage persona interacts with her off-stage life, Schumer had this to say:

Yes. (Laughs.) It definitely used to be fully a persona, and it feels really good to get closer to me. I love playing a monster, just like the worst white woman, but I’m getting further and further away from that [in my act].

The comedian then elaborated further and said: It’s happened gradually, just educating myself and seeing the harm in joking around about things that are harmful and taking more responsibility and having it not just be about trying to sneak into this boys’ club.
