Happy Birthday to Amy Schumer who celebrates her 39th birthday on June 1, 2020. Born in New York, New York, on June 1, 1981, Amy Schumer has become one of the most in-demand actresses and she launched her career as a stand up comic. Amy found herself in the public spotlight when she appeared on the NBC program Last Comic Standing. She is cousins with New York Senator Chuck Schumer and though she’s known for her humor, she takes politics seriously. Amy hasn’t shared anything on her social media accounts regarding her birthday, instead, she’s been sharing photos and videos in regards to the George Floyd protest.
Amy Schumer is known for her raunchy humor that she brought to her stand-up comedy routines and her work on screen. She paid her dues doing live, stand-up but was discovered (so to speak) when she appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, where she finished in fourth place. It didn’t matter to her success that she didn’t win the show as she gained enough exposure to get a television special followed by her own show: Inside Amy Schumer for which she has won a Peabody and Emmy award.
She has five projects in the works and finished filming the movie The Humans before the pandemic hit.
Amy has her own YouTube channel where you can catch up on some of her latest skits. You may see a video titled “Parenting Hack” featuring Amy Schumer in the video player below.
As Amy Schumer’s cousin is Senator Chuck Schumer, political causes are close to her heart. She has joined forces with her cousin on several issues including gun control and the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Amy is married to American chef Chris Fischer. The couple wed after dating for three months in Feb. 2018 and are still going strong. Now they have one child, a son named Gene David Fischer who was born in May 2019 and just celebrated his first birthday.
Happy Birthday, Amy Schumer!
