AMY SCHUMER (Amy/Written by/Co-Producer)
is the creator, star, writer and
executive producer of the
Primetime Emmy Award-nominated
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 clusterf*ck
that is life through a series of scripted vignettes, standup
comedy and man-on-the-street interviews. The show
returned for a third season on April 21.
Schumer's hit one-hour stand-up special, Amy
Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff, became Comedy Central's
second-highest rated special of 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 on the last
season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
On the big screen, Schumer was seen in the feature
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, which starred
Steve Carell and Keira Knightley; and the independent
feature Price Check, opposite Parker Posey, which
premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
Schumer's 2012 comedy album "Cutting" placed
in the top five on 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. She soon
after co-starred on 30 Rock and received her own
Comedy Central Presents special.
Schumer co-hosted Hoppus on Music, with Mark
Hoppus of Blink-182, on Fuse and made her fifth
appearance at Montreal's Just for Laughs comedy
festival in summer 2014.
Schumer is a founding member of The
Collective, a New York-based theater company,
and a graduate of The William Esper Studio, where
she studied for three years.
