Amy Schumer Accused of Stealing Jokes, Says She'll Take a Polygraph to Prove Otherwise

Amy Schumer is fighting back after several comedians have accused her of copying their jokes.

The 34-year-old actress stopped by fellow comedian Jim Norton‘s SiriusXM show to address the accusations that she used the same punchlines on her show Inside Amy Schumer and in her movie Trainwreck.

“I’m being accused of stealing jokes and I wanted to come and talk to you about it and clear my name,” Amy said. “I would never, ever do that and I never have. I’m literally going to take a polygraph test and put it on my show this season, and I promise, whatever the results are — I won’t let them cut — I will show that I had never, never seen Patrice [O'Neal] do that bit. I had definitely never seen Tammy Pescatelli do that.”

    She probably did steal them as she isn’t a good comedian.

    is she stealing her stories as well with her show? if that other chick is so funny, write your own now and be a succes. Why didn’t she come out before…why now? 5 mints of fame. Its just lame.

    I don’t think Patrice O’Neal is complaining because he’s been dead for a few years now.

    No big deal, its in Jews nature to steal things and pretend they are theirs.

    Fine, then someone else ghost writes for you and they steal it. It’s all too coincidental. Either way the Jokes are stolen and you ain’t funny.
