Amy Schumer Live
In the comedy world, it feels like this has been the year of Amy Schumer. With a hit film, award-winning sketch show, and her first HBO special under her belt, the New York native practically has the world at her feet. To continue her reign of success, Schumer will be taking a major North American tour around to numerous arenas through the summer of 2016.
The trek kicks off from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on Nov. 5. A series of more than 10 additional cross-country stand-up performances will lead up to Schumer’s first headlining show at Madison Square Garden. The performance at her hometown venue on June 23 next year will mark the first time a female comic headlines the arena, and only the 10th time any stand-up comedian has been invited to perform solo at the Garden.

Although Schumer has been a popular figure in the comedy scene for years, she really became a mainstream household name this summer with the release of “Trainwreck,” a film she both wrote and starred in alongside former SNL star Bill Hader. Later in the year, Schumer also hosted her first episode of “Saturday Night Live,” in addition to winning her first Critics’ Choice, Television Critics Association, and EMMY Awards for her work on “Inside Amy Schumer.”
