Amy Schumer's Awards Acceptance Speech: As Gross as It Is Inspirational

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Amy Schumer, winner of Glamour's Trailblazer of the Year award, accepted her trophy with an impromptu standup routine that incldues the story of how she lost her two front teeth and got her period in the same week. In the five-minute speech, the comedian manages to use the word "dick" three times as well as the phrase "Jack o'lantern with tits." Bravo.
