for Comedy Central, which premiered in April 2013 to the network’s
highest season premiere ratings of that year, it is currently in its

Simon & Schuster’s imprint Gallery Books will publish Schumer’s first book “The Girl with The Lower Back Tattoo” on August 16th, 2016.

Schumer can next be seen in the independent film Thank You For Your Service
opposite Miles Teller for director Jason Hall. The film is an
adaptation of David Finkel’s book of the same name, and follows a group
of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into
family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that
threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield. 

Schumer
is currently in production on the “untitled mother-daughter adventure”
comedy opposite Goldie Hawn for director Jonathan Levine. The film
centers on a mother-daughter duo trapped in a vacation gone wrong.
Schumer and Kimberly Caramele are executive producing the project and
completed additional script work on Katie Dippold’s screenplay. The film
will be released in 2017 by 20th Century Fox.

Schumer’s Universal Pictures hit Trainwreck
dominated the 2015 summer comedy international box office. Amy wrote
the film which co-starred Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, Lebron
James and Vanessa Bayer. Judd Apatow directed the film which was
nominated for two Golden Globes including Best Actress, Comedy or
Musical, as well as Best Picture, Comedy or Musical. 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

The special earned her a Writers Guild nomination for Best
Comedy/Variety Special.

2015 The British Academy of Film and Television (BAFTA) honored Schumer
with The Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for “Excellence in Comedy.”

As
a stand-up comedian she continues to tour to sold out shows around the
world. Schumer’s hit one-hour stand-up special for Comedy Central,
Mostly Sex Stuff, stands as the network’s highest rated original
stand-up special since 2011. 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.
