Amy Schumer is an Emmy winner, writer and star of the 2015 comedy blockbuster Trainwreck, and the brains behind hit Comedy Central sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer. But, according to the comedian, she’s on her way out.
"Do you guys know that I'm really famous now?” Schumer joked at the Comedy Central upfronts in New York City on Thursday. “I think it's gonna last another six months. Obviously, I've got behavioral issues.”
The 34-year-old actress and comedian admitted that she wasn’t prepared for her instant rise to stardom, telling reporters, “I didn't know what being famous would be like.”
“You can imagine, and then it actually really blows,” Schumer added. “You're like, 'Boo-hoo,' and yes, I'm very rich now. Very rich. But now, I get to have things like, if I walk down the street in New York, people go, 'Oh my god, I never do this, but would you (expletive) my brother?'"
Schumer recently released a teaser for Inside Amy Schumer’s upcoming fourth season, in which she parodies Game of Thrones, announcing that “TV’s most anticipated show is returning.”
“No spoilers, but Jon Snow is definitely alive…’cause he said no to doing our show,” the comedian jokes, dressed as Emilia Clarke’s character, Daenerys Targaryen, from the HBO hit.
At least Schumer is using her 15 minutes mostly for good. Check out the epic tip
