New Orleans, LA (March 9, 2015) - As the funniest, freshest face on television, Amy Schumer is on the rise in the world of comedy with her blend of honesty, and unapologetic sense of humor. She will be stopping in New Orleans at the Saenger Theatre on Sunday, May 24th.
Schumer is the creator, star, writer and executive producer of Inside Amy Schumer, the popular Comedy Central television series which premiered in April 2013 to the network's highest season premiere ratings of the year. Schumer's provocative and hilariously wicked mind is on full display as she explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and the general cluster that is life through a series of scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews. The show will return for a 3rd season in April 2015.
This summer she is in production on Universal's Trainwreck that Schumer wrote and will star in alongside Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton and Brie Larson. Judd Apatow will produce and direct the feature film that is scheduled to be released in July 2015.
Schumer's hit one-hour stand-up special, Mostly Sex Stuff, became Comedy Central's second-highest rated special in 2012. She was also one of the featured comedians on Comedy Central's Roast of Roseanne, which followed her memorable and quotable performance on the 2011 Roast of Charlie Sheen.
She was recently seen in such critically acclaimed series as FX's Louie and HBO's Girls. Previously, Schumer had a recurring role on the third season of Adult Swim's Delocated, and guest starred in the latest season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
On the big screen, Schumer filmed the feature Seeking a Friend for the End of the World starring Steve Carrell and Kiera Knightley, as well as Price Check, an independent feature opposite Parker Posey which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
Her album Cutting placed in the top 5 of the Billboard Charts and has been included on multiple Best Comedy Albums of the Year awards' lists.
The comic made her network debut in 2007 when she starred on NBC's Last Comic Standing and soon after co-starred on 30 Rock and received her own Comedy Central Presents special.
She co-hosted Hoppus on Music with Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 on Fuse and made her fifth appearance at the Montreal Comedy Festival this summer.
Schumer is a founding member of The Collective, a New York based Theatre Company, and a graduate of The William Esper studio where she studied for 3 years.
