In case you missed it, we had a great week! This past Monday we had Greer Barnes (Comedy Central), Judah Friedlander (30 Rock), & Amy Schumer perform in a star-studded evening! But enough about us, let's give a special shout out to Amy & her upcoming movie, Trainwreck!
Amy Schumer: Far From a Trainwreck
Amy Schumer is just about as successful as anyone in comedy right now. Since bursting onto the scene less than five years ago, she has ascended to become one of the most prominent and outspoken voices in the entertainment industry. Along with being a national headliner, Schumer is at the helm of her own critically acclaimed sketch comedy show on Comedy Central, entitled Inside Amy Schumer. In just a few weeks, she will make another imprint on the industry, when her self-written starring debut in a feature film, Trainwreck, hits theaters on July 17th. The story is about Amy, a commitment-phobic career woman who is thrown for a loop when she meets Aaron, played by SNL alum Bill Hader.
Despite her impending blockbuster, Ms. Schumer is certainly not resting on her laurels. She’s instead in the midst of one of busiest and most successful summers for a star in recent history. At the end of May, she taped a one-hour special for HBO, which was directed by comedy legend Chris Rock. A few weeks prior, Amy visited Stand Up NY to work on some material. And last month, as a part of the promotion for Trainwreck, she wrapped up a 7-city tour with members of the cast, donating all proceeds to various charities. As her star continues to rise, Amy Schumer seems destined to meet her astronomical potential- both on stage and off.
Trainwreck debuts nationwide July 17th. Watch the trailer here.
