“Expecting Amy” is a funny, frank, open book of a documentary — sort of like a stand-up-comic version of “Truth or Dare.”

Schumer is someone who cannot not be working, and her work is translating her experience into the form of a joke. This makes Expecting Amy both a poignant sort of reclamation project and an elaborate if hardly needed defense of her career.

Because Expecting Amy offers such an intimate portrait, it's almost impossible to separate the project from the person, meaning one's interest level in Schumer going in will likely determine the extent to which this docuseries diary delivers.

The series works best as an authentic look at what it's like to be two humans engaged in the complicated, messy business of making a new human.

If Ali Wong radicalized pregnant raunch, Schumer radicalizes pregnant rawness. She refuses to cut away, and, in turn, refuses the audience comfort.
