Exclaim!'s 14 Favourite Amy Schumer Clips You Can Find on YouTube
Published Apr 25, 2017
Few comedians have had as successful a career as Amy Schumer.
Since rocketing to national attention during the 2007 season of Last Comic Standing, the former Gotham Comedy Club regular has gone on to roast Charlie Sheen, tour the world, host Saturday Night Live, star in a major motion picture and have her own TV show.
Now, she's set to star alongside one of her comedy idols in Snatched, an uproarious-looking action comedy starring silver screen legend Goldie Hawn about a mother and daughter who find themselves in a heap load of trouble after being abducted while on a tropical vacation. The film also stars Joan Cusack, Ike Barinholtz, Wanda Sykes, Colin Quinn and Christopher Meloni.
Before Snatched comes to theatres on May 12, we decided to dig deep and share our 14 favourite Amy Schumer moments from the past few years.
