" Carol Burnett is beyond an inspiration to me. She's probably the reason that I got into comedy, and definitely the reason that I have a television show of my own now," said Amy Schumer. "She has made me laugh probably harder than anyone I've ever seen in my life. Because of her openness and willingness to share herself and be giving not only with her making people laugh, but with her laughter as well, she's definitely paved the way for me and most other female comedians that I know."
