Amy’s series differ from the others in terms of their structure, every episode is divided into segments of a different length, including stand-up episodes, short street interviews and longer ones with diverse noteworthy people discussing issues concerning sexuality and gender roles. What excludes Amy from the others is her frankness and her ridiculously freakish humour.
