Stand up talent, Amy Schumer, will bring her blend of wholesome, girl-next-door looks and edgy comedy to the Fox Theater stage on Saturday, March 30, 2013 at 8 p.m. for one hysterical performance. Tickets are $30, $40 and $50, and are available for pre-sale on Thursday, Nov. 29, and for regular sale Friday, Nov. 30 at 10 a.m. The show is presented by Comix At Foxwoods and is intended for mature audiences only.
Schumer is the star, writer and creator of “Inside Amy,” which will premiere next year on Comedy Central. Coming off her one-hour stand-up special, “Mostly Sex Stuff,” which became Comedy Central’s second-highest rated special in 2012, she was also featured on the network’s “Roast of Roseanne” following her breakout performance on last year’s “Roast of Charlie Sheen.” Most recently seen on “Louie,” she will next appear in season two of HBO’s “Girls.”
Schumer was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and as Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch” this past year, in addition to writing articles for Cosmo Magazine to enormous reader response. In addition to appearing on “The Howard Stern Show,” she has also hit the late night circuit, visiting “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” She also recurred on season three of Adult Swim’s “Delocated,” and guest starred in the latest season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Not to miss out on the big screen, she filmed the feature “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” starring Steve Carrell and Kiera Knightley and “Price Check,” an independent feature opposite Parker Posey, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
Schumer made her network debut in 2007 on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and soon after, co-starred on “30 Rock” and had her own “Comedy Central Presents” special. Her album, “Cutting,” placed in the top five of the Billboard Charts and has been included on multiple Best Comedy Albums of the Year awards’ lists. She also co-hosted “Hoppus on Music” with Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 on Fuse, and made her fourth appearance at the Montreal Comedy Festival this past summer.
