Amy Schumer’s resume overflows with an embarrassment of outstanding achievements, excelling as an award-winning stand-up comedian, actress, writer, producer and director.

Writer and star of Inside Amy Schumer - Golden Globe nominated motion picture Trainwreck and several hugely successful, dedicated TV specials - as a stand-up comedian Schumer continues to tour sold-out shows around the world.

Amy 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. Mostly Sex Stuff, Schumer’s hit one-hour stand-up special for Comedy Central still stands as the network’s highest rated original stand-up special since 2011. Creator, star, writer and executive producer of the award winning Inside Amy Schumer, the popular Comedy Central television series premiered in 2013 to the network’s highest season premiere ratings of that year. Recently picked up for a fifth season, the show won the Writers Guild Award for ‘Best Comedy/Variety Sketch Series’ and was honoured with the first-ever Emmy Award for ‘Outstanding Variety Sketch Series’, as well as nominations for ‘Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series’, ‘Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series’ and ‘Outstanding Lead Actress in Comedy Series’.
