Must read: Amy Schumer and co-star Colin Quinn's strange text message exchanges

Clare Cullen

Colin Quinn played Amy Schumer's father in the film Trainwreck, but it's their Instagrammed text messages that provide the real comedy material.

Amy Schumer has a running joke on her Instagram where she shares screenshots of messages between her and Trainwreck co-star Colin Quinn.

The text messages follow a similar format, with Colin imparting some warning or guidance on Amy and Amy replying with something rude or abrasive. Often Amy's replies consist of "remove me from your phone" or "how did you get this number?"

The oddball text messages are another sign of how close the two comics have become, having appeared together in a number of online and TV pieces before working together on the feature film Schumer wrote.

Quinn has made regular appearances in Amy's sketch TV show 'Inside Amy Schumer' on Comedy Central.
