Amy Schumer is an American comedian, actress and screenwriter born on June 1, 1981 in New York. She had a difficult childhood marked by the bankruptcy of her family, the multiple sclerosis of her father and the divorce of her parents.

In 2000, when she was only 19 years old, she began performing stand-up comedy. She participated in several television shows, notably on the Comedy Central channel, which only increased her fame. Her humor, somewhat saucy, and her feminist stances make her a strong but endearing character who will appear in several television series such as Louie.

From 2013, she plays her own role in Inside Amy Schumer, a series on Comedy Central in which she is sometimes accompanied by guest stars. This series, of which she is also the creator, producer and writer, brings her numerous awards and nominations including the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards for Best Sketch Entertainment Show.

In 2015, Judd Apatow himself offered her to write her own role and star in his film Crazy Amy for which many famous actors responded: Bill Hader, Brie Larson or even Daniel Radcliffe. In 2016, the actress was also nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy for this role.

On the private side, Amy Schumer officialized in early 2016 her relationship with Ben Hanisch, photographer. But in the spring of 2017, the couple broke up. A few months later, the actress finds love again on the arm of Chris Fischer, a chef. On February 13, 2018, the couple got married in Malibu. In October 2018, she announced her pregnancy on social networks.
