In the no limits interview, Schumer also discussed her sex life. "I’ve had a lot of sex in my life, and, no bulls**t, 80 per cent of those were Irish people," she laughed. "Don’t applaud that.”

That's not where her appreciation for Ireland ended, having praised Irish comedian Maeve Higgins, who has starred in her hit show Inside Amy Schumer.

“Maeve Higgins, I’m sorry, but we’re keeping her. And we’ll send her back for holidays,” she said.

During a hilarious questions and answers session, Schumer answered questions on the craziest thing she's done while drunk and why she decided to fall in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the TIME top 100 most influential people red carpet.

Schumer, who wrote the script for Trainwreck, stars as a woman who lives an uninhibited, free, unapologetic lifestyle.

However, when she meets Bill Hader she starts to rethink her approach to life and relationships.

The movie has already racked up more than €83m since its release and has received rave reviews.

Tickets for the event were free and were snapped up in less than half an hour.
