Comedian Amy Schumer opened up for Madonna's Rebel Hear tour in New York's Madison Square Gardens on Wednesday night.
During Wednesday night’s set, Schumer could hardly contain her disbelief and excitement. ”Oh my god this is amazing. I thought nobody would be here. This is awesome,” she said. “Who better to open for Madonna than me? Literally any band. … I’ve loved Madonna literally forever.”
To prove her lifelong love for the music icon, Schumer posted an adorable Instagram video before the show, featuring her childhood self belting Madonna's 1989 hit 'Like A Prayer.'
'I made it through the wilderness. Meet you at @TheGarden tonight @Madonna,' Amy wrote, alongside the clip.
The Trainwreck star revealed back in June that she would be opening for Madonna's tour. She explained to Entertainment Weekly that comedian and actor, Chris Rock, called her up and said that Madonna wanted her number.
Schumer didn't hesitate to pass it on and before she knew it, Madonna invited her to join her Rebel Heart tour.
“It’s not like a dream come true,” Schumer told the New York Times in July. “This is a dream I didn’t even know I had.”
During her set R-rated set on Wednesday, Schumer cracked jokes about the Obama's sex lives and Hilary Clinton's drinking habits.
“This is so much more fun than I imagined! I thought I was just going to eat s—! I’m really trying to feel this moment. I grew up here! I shot a movie scene here.”
Schumer won over the crowd, who gave her a standing ovation at the end. "That is the best feeling I have ever had," she said.
She also revealed that she would be returning to the world-famous venue in June 2016, but this time as the main event.
"I just found out that I'll be playing MSG by myself on June 23!" Schumer said on stage.
The show will mark her first headlining gig at the arena which is seen as a benchmark for comedy success.
