Amy Schumer is back, and more pregnant than ever, with her well-known style of crude comedy in the new Netflix comedy special Growing.

Schumer, coming off the disappointment of the Leather Special, is now married and with child, but hasn’t changed her style. She’s still delivering the same types of punch lines within a brand new set. Showing that never changing can sometimes be for the best.

The Jewish comedienne’s special focus on the ups and downs of life, marriage, pregnancy and even her husband’s battle with autism – bring light-hearted humor, insight and attention to the disorder.

Whether she is discussing a plate her husband made in pottery class, the wonders and woes of being pregnant, why everyone is always “cupping the [baby] bump” in pictures, or being pregnant at the same time as Meghan Markle – Schumer delivers and her timing is impeccable.

The Netflix description of this special is that it’s “both raunchy and sincere.” Many online reviewers have revered this performance as one the most honest depictions of pregnancy ever seen on television. Schumer talks about many light-hearted matters such as stereotypical outlooks on pregnant women, but also about her serious battle with hyperemesis, a severe form of morning sickness. All her topics receive large belly laughs from the crowd due to perfect comedic timing on Schumer’s part.

Schumer has been wildly successful in the past releasing comedy specials on Comedy Central, HBO and Netflix.

Schumer gained fame in 2007, as a contestant on the reality competition series Last Comic Standing, and has been the co-creator of Inside Amy Schumer since 2013. She and has appeared in, as well as written, a few blockbuster movies, such as her debut 2015 Trainwreck. She was also named that year as one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people.

Look for Growing on Netflix to experience Schumer’s raunchy adulthood for yourself.
