Amy Schumer Chugs Wine, Talks ‘Trainwreck’ in the Trailer for Her HBO Special
Among all the great stuff hitting the small screen this fall, it may be easy to forget that Amy Schumer — comedy goddess, hilarious human, et al. — has an HBO special coming next month. The live special was directed by HBO vet Chris Rock, but judging by the first trailer for Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo that’s probably going to seem like an afterthought because Schumer is absolutely killing it. And by it we mean this bottle of wine — but also jokes!
Schumer takes the legendary Apollo stage in the trailer for her one-hour HBO comedy special, where her topics include dating, sex, a bottle of wine and her film, Trainwreck. Schumer wrote and starred in the Judd Apatow-directed comedy, and in the trailer for her HBO special she gets hilariously frank about what was expected of her in the transition from small screen to big: “We just need you to do three things. Just be yourself. Have fun. Stop eating food.”
Schumer, who also writes and stars in the hit Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer, is making her HBO debut with Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, which debuts on the network on Saturday, October 12. In addition, Schumer is also developing a comedy film with Jennifer Lawrence and will host an episode of SNL this fall.
