Amy Schumer continues hot streak with her first HBO standup special

If you loved her last Saturday guest-hosting SNL, or starring in and writing the summer comedy film Trainwreck, or in any of the myriad appearances she has made in recent years to become one of the hottest comedians out there, then you’ll want to tune in to Amy Schumer’s first standup comedy special for HBO this Saturday, Oct. 17.


Called Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, the one-hour special was taped May 29 before a live audience at New York’s iconic Apollo Theater. Chris Rock directed the special, which features Schumer talking about her life in her own inimitable way.

Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo premieres Oct. 17 at 10pm ET/PT on HBO.

  1. We do not need actors and other Hollywood types taking on causes. No one takes them seriously, or wants to hear their opinions. It’s the politicians that need to take action. Way too much crap in Hollywood, like rampant pedophilia and “everybody knew Bill Cosby was raping women” (without doing anything about it) for anyone to care what Lena Dunham, George Clooney or Amy Shumer think about anything. Clean up your own filthy house first and stop abusing children promising them parts in “X-Men” and maybe someone will “start” to care about Hollywood opinions.
