February 22, 2016

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Amy Schumer has announced that she will be performing live at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 8. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 26.

Schumer has proven herself to be one of the entertainment industry’s leading forces as a stand-up comedian, actress, writer, producer and director.

Schumer is the creator, star, writer and executive producer of “Inside Amy Schumer,” the award-winning Comedy Central television series that will begin its fourth season April 21. 

Schumer is currently in production on the independent film, “Thank You For Your Service,” an adaptation of David Finkel’s book of the same name that follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life. Soon after, Schumer will begin shooting an as-yet untitled adventure comedy opposite Goldie Hawn that centers on a mother-daughter duo trapped in a vacation gone wrong.

Schumer’s Universal Pictures hit “Trainwreck” dominated the 2015 summer comedy international box office. Amy wrote the film, which was nominated for two Golden Globes. Additionally, she won the Critic’s Choice Award for “Best Actress in a Comedy” and was nominated for a Writers’ Guild Award in the category of “Original Screenplay.”

Her one-hour HBO comedy special, “Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo,” premiered Oct. 17, 2015, and was HBO’s most watched Saturday night comedy special debut since December 2009.

Schumer 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. Her other television credits include FX’s “Louie” and HBO’s “Girls” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Additional film credits include “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, and “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.
