Schumer is known for creating, writing and starring in the award-winning comedy sketch series Inside Amy Schumer, which took home the prize for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series at the 2015 Emmy Awards.

Last summer, Schumer delighted Irish fans at a Q&A hosted by Panti Bliss during the promotional tour for Trainwreck.

During her time in Dublin, she downed a pint of Guinness and joined Glen Hansard for an impromptu rendition of The Auld Triangle for a newly-married couple.

Her next role sees her swapping comedy for drama in Thank You For Your Service, in which she plays a soldier who struggles to adapt to home life after returning from Iraq.
