Seek gun background checks

Makes Statement

The actress pledges to become involved in efforts to curb gun violence at a news conference. Schumer says her second cousin’s package of plans “seeks to address the how,” vowing that these initial public remarks “will not be my last.”

We’ll never know why people choose to do these painful things, but sadly, we always find out how.

Specifically, Senator Schumer is introducing legislation that would allow the Justice Department to create rewards and penalties for states that submit or don’t submit all records into the background check system. The Schumers also called on Congress to fully fund the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which the Senate has proposed cutting by $159 million.

Entertainment Weekly cover

Magazine Cover

Schumer appears on the cover of April issue of Entertainment Weekly. She talks about feminism, love, sex, and relationships.

I’m not very sexually active. On stage I talk about my boyfriend and the two guys I dated and my one and only one-night stand, and it sounds like ‘This girl is a real Dumpster.’ But really over two years I slept with four people. Not that there’d be anything wrong if I slept with more if that’s what I wanted to do.

‘She inspired every comic I know’

Schumer reacts to the death of Rivers:

Joan was hilarious and relevant all the way to the end.  She inspired every comic I know and we will carry her with us and quote her jokes forever. When I met her at the premiere of her movie, A Piece of Work she was so kind and wanted to make sure all the comics were going to stay so we could all hang out together. I thought that was so cool. Such a pro, such a hard worker. This was a huge loss for us all.

Amy Schumer interview

Elle Magazine interviews Schumer about people mistaking her for a waitress in the clubs before she goes on stage to preform.

That just happened again. I was headlining Gotham Comedy Club in New York City and this guy waved me over. Everyone else at the table seemed to know [it was me], so it was probably like slow-mo to them. Like, ‘He’s not doing this, is he? Kevin!’ But Kevin says to me, ‘Can I get a drink?’ So I got him an iced tea and then I went onstage.

Amy Schumer interview


Schumer returns to Conan as a guest to promote her new sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer. She also talks about how much lying happens on her dates and her experience going out with a wrestler.

We were just very different sexually. Like he was very active in bed, and like moving around. And my style, I like… laying there.
