Schumer also announced that she will return to host “Saturday Night Live” alongside musical guest Kacey Musgraves on May 12.

Schumer most recently stars in the hit comedy, “I Feel Pretty,” and can also be seen on the big screen in “Snatched,” the mother-daughter comedy opposite Goldie Hawn; a drama about PTSD in soldiers “Thank You For Your Service;” and Universal Pictures hit “Trainwreck.” “Trainwreck” dominated the 2015 summer comedy worldwide box office and was nominated for two Golden Globes including Best Actress, Comedy or Musical, as well as Best Picture, Comedy or Musical.

Schumer’s latest one-hour comedy special titled “The Leather Special” is currently streaming on Netflix. Her one-hour HBO comedy special, “Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo” directed by Chris Rock, premiered on October 17, 2015, and was HBO’s most watched Saturday night comedy special debut. In 2016, Schumer became the first female comedian to ever sell out Madison Square Garden in New York City. Schumer has won the Pollstar Award for “Comedy Tour Of The Year” in both 2015 and 2016. Schumer’s first book, “The Girl with The Lower Back Tattoo,” earned her a 2017 Grammy Award nomination for Best Spoken Word Album and was on The New York Times bestseller list for months. Schumer is the creator, star, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody award-winning “Inside Amy Schumer,” the popular Comedy Central television series.
