Amy Schumer poked fun (figuratively!) at her vagina and Bradley Cooper in her hilarious monologue on “Saturday Night Live” last night. She also turned her self-deprecating humor on Hollywood and the problems women face getting steady and meaningful work.

How could she go wrong? Schumer is the hot comedian of the moment and pal of Jennifer Lawrence. Plus, she’s dating Bradley Cooper.

Does it get better than that?

Apparently it could, but it isn’t. Schumer played off the fact that she’s now in her mid-30s, often goes dateless and doesn’t have the body she used to have. She described it as a lava lamp.

Amy definitely came up the hard way. She started doing stand-up after graduating from college with a theater degree in 2003.

She appeared on on the fifth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” after bombing the audition the first time around. She did another comedy competition, “Reality Bites Back” on Comedy Central. She placed fifth and second, respectively.

Her career took off in 2012 when she landed a regular Comedy Central show “Inside Amy Schumer.”

The show has been renewed for a fourth season, and Schumer now is considered the queen of sketch comedy.

She won a Peabody Award for her show and a Primetime Emmy this year for “Outstanding Variety Sketch Series.” Her feature-length movie “Trainwreck,” was a commercial and critical success.

She basically plays the outsider, the un-cola of show business, which gives her a place to stand to leverage her humor. She’s not afraid to talk about anything including her sex life.

“I like tackling the stuff nobody else talks about, like the darkest, most serious thing about yourself. I talk about life and sex and personal stories and stuff everybody can relate to, and some can’t,” she said in a 2012 interview.
