Amy Schumer is the latest comedian to sign up for a Netflix special.
It was recorded in November at Colorado’s Bellco Theater.
“Very happy to be a part of the Netflix family for this special,” Schumer said in a statement. “Maybe now they will look at my ‘Stranger Things’ audition tape to play the demogorgon for Season 2.”
“As a comedian, actress, writer, director, producer and best-selling author, Amy Schumer is a boundless threat and a one-of-a-kind talent. We couldn’t be more excited that she’s making Netflix her home for her next stand-up comedy special,” Ted Sarandos, chief content officer of Netflix, said in a statement.
This is just another notch on Amy’s impressive comedy career. Her Comedy Central show “Inside Amy Schumer” has been highly successful and has won 3 Primetime Emmys, being nominated for 12. Schumer is best-selling author of her book “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo” which she released last year and her movie Trainwreck has gone on to make over $140 million worldwide.
2017 will bring her more movie roles. She is set to play Barbie in Sonys new live-action family comedy. She will also be on the big screen alongside Goldie Hawn in mother-daughter comedy snatched.
The stand-up special will be available on Netflix March 7th.
