Comedy superstar Amy Schumer—one of the entertainment industry’s leading forces, as a stand-up comedian, actress, writer, producer and director—kicks off the first leg of her all-new comedy tour at NJPAC!

Amy Schumer is the creator, star, writer and executive producer of Comedy Central’s award-winning Inside Amy Schumer, which earned the 2015 Writers Guild Award for Best Comedy/Variety Sketch series. That same year, the show was honored with the first-ever Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Sketch Variety Series.  Inside Amy Schumer has also earned awards from the Television Critics Association, the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, and was the recipient of the prestigious Peabody Award in 2014.

Schumer’s New York Times bestseller, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, earned her a 2017 GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Spoken Word Album and was released in paperback in August 2017.  Her big-screen credits include the smash hit Trainwreck, the mother-daughter comedy Snatched (in which she starred opposite Goldie Hawn), Jason Hall’s drama Thank You for Your Service, and this summer’s I Feel Pretty.

The Leather Special, Schumer’s latest stand-up special, is currently streaming on Netflix. Her 2015 HBO special, Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo (directed by Chris Rock), became HBO’s most-watched Saturday night comedy special debut since 2009.  She was recently nominated for a Tony Award for her Broadway debut in Steve Martin’s Meteor Shower. Schumer also holds the distinction of being the only female comic to headline at Madison Square Garden, and is a proud founding member of Time’s Up.

NOTE:  No cellphones, cameras or recording devices will be allowed at this show. Upon arrival, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr pouches that will be unlocked at the end of the show. Guests maintain possession of their phones throughout the night, and if needed, may access their phones at designated Yondr unlocking stations in the lobby. All guests are encouraged to print their tickets in advance to ensure a smooth entry process. Anyone caught with a cellphone in the venue will be immediately ejected. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free viewing experience.

For those customers who elect delivery of their tickets to their mobile device, before you must secure your device in a Yondr pouch, you will be issued seat locator slips when your mobile unit is scanned.
