Tie up your pigtails, pull out your leather jumpsuits, unearth your back tattoos — Amy Schumer’s coming to town.
The Amy Schumer and Friends tour — featuring Rachel Feinstein, Bridget Everett, and Mia Jackson — comes to Heinz Hall on Sept. 21.
Schumer is a theatrical jack-of-all-trades. She does not limit her talent to standup; Schumer is also a writer, director, producer and actress. On her popular show Inside Amy Schumer, which won an Emmy in 2015, Schumer acted, directed, wrote, and produced. (City Paper interviewed one of the show's writers, Kyle Dunnigan, in 2016.)
In 2017, Schumer received a Grammy nomination for her narration of her autobiography, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo. Schumer is unapologetic and bold, and has emerged leading activist. She has been vocal in the #TIMESUP movement and is an outspoken feminist. Schumer packs her tweets with calls to action and support for social justice movements.
