Amy Schumer pulls no punches in her comedy. The budding stand-up comic has roasted the likes of Charlie Sheen and Roseanne Barr and became a household name with a pair of specials that are equal parts outlandish and abrasive. That fearless brand of humor occasionally finds the “Inside Amy Schumer” star and namesake fearlessly addressing bedroom faux pas—Schumer’s latest special was called Mostly Sex Stuff, after all—and relationships gone awry in her show, with no shortage of self-effacing bits incorporated throughout.

Schumer will be making her second stop in Milwaukee in the last 11 months—this time as part of “Amy Schumer’s Back Door Tour”—Thursday, February 13 at Riverside Theater. Yep, that’s the night before Valentine’s Day, so you can be there will be plenty of hilarious material about men vs women and how that holiday can elicit polarizing reactions.

So if this time of year brings you an overriding sense of dread, maybe TCD and Ms. Schumer can help bring some laughs your way this year. Comment (Leave a Reply) with your worst Valentine’s Day memory. We’ll pick one person’s tale of cupid’s cruelty and will treat the winner with a pair of tickets to Thursday’s show. The winner will be contacted via email Tuesday night. If you aren’t the lucky winner, tickets are still available.

Season 2 of Inside Amy Schumer premieres April 1 on Comedy Central. Get ready for the 10-episode sophomore season by watching clips or full episodes from the first season at ComedyCentral.com.

    Valentine’s of 2013 takes the title for ‘If It’s The Thought That Counts, Then What Were You Thinking?!’ date. We started off at a small Irish pub to redeem a Groupon for a whiskey tasting. I’m all about saving a dime but he only purchased one so we had to share 4 small shots of whiskey, wherein I would take a tiny sip & then pass it to him to finish. To up the awkwardness the only other patron of this bar was a homeless guy right next to us who commentated the entire college ball game on the tv for us. Next we went to a community theater for what he thought was a stand-up show. It was actually a showcase for an acting class with an audience entirely of doting grandmothers. Two random monologues in my date was asleep and snoring. I spent the next two hours sitting through what felt like an American Idol audition process, kicking my date periodically when his nose orchestra became too much. Afterwards was dinner at a bar that only served burgers. I was so hungry at this point that I didn’t care that the name on the napkins didn’t match the name on the door. But I did care that the bar was hosting a Single Ladies Night! We were completely surrounded by Snooki look-a-likes downing $5 glasses of champagne. Finally my night ended with a gift. He gave me a used novel in French. I do not speak French.

    I wasn’t at the restaurant when she arrived with a mix tape and a card. I don’t remember anything before the angry texts. I think she had the wrong number. Happy Valentine’s Day, folks.

    I got HPV. But it was the good, non-cancer kind. So I guess it wasn’t that bad of a VDay?

    Had a anti-valentine date with a female friend while in college, maybe ’96 or ’97. Dinner & a movie. I was waiting on Maryland to take the 30 bus back home around midnight. A car drove slowly by once with their lights off. A minute later they came by again, slowed down in front of me, and threw eggs at me. Two of them hit my chest. I had to board the bus a few minutes later dripping eggs. Worst Valentine’s ever!
