Hundreds of comedy fans got the chance to get 'inside Amy Schumer' during a special Q&A session with Panti Bliss in Dublin last night.

The 'Trainwreck' star and the movie's director Judd Apatow opened up to Ireland's most famous drag queen on life in Hollywood during the hour-long panel show in UCD's O'Reilly theatre.

In the no-limits interview, Schumer discussed her sex life, claiming 80pc of those she slept with were Irish. "Don't applaud that," she joked.

That's not where her appreciation for Ireland ended, praising 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.

Fans said the Q&A was hilarious, with Schumer questioned on the craziest things she's done and why she fell in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the red carpet at the 'Time' top 100 most influential people event.

Schumer and Apatow will be on the red carpet at the Savoy in Dublin tonight when 'Trainwreck' premieres.
