The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County and AEG Live are proud to announce edgy Comedy Central star Amy Schumer as the latest addition to its 2013-2014 Live at Knight Series. As part of her “Inside Amy Schumer’s Back Door Tour,” Schumer will make her Arsht debut on February 18 at 8 p.m. in the Ziff Ballet Opera House. This is Schumer’s second national tour with Comedy Central, which kicked off on January 24.
Amy Schumer is quickly becoming the hottest star in the world of comedy, with her blend of wholesome, girl-next-door looks and witty banter. Her popular Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, is ranked as a top three program on cable among males ages 18-34 in its Tuesday 10:30 p.m.-11 p.m. timeslot during its first season. The series is currently in production for its second season and set to debut on April 1, at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central. Inside Amy Schumer, created by Schumer and Daniel Powell, provides an intimate look into the mind of the comedian, who through a series of scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews, explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and life.
Most recently, Amy Schumer presented her one-hour stand-up special, Mostly Sex Stuff, which became Comedy Central’s second-highest rated special this year. She was one of the featured comedians on Comedy Central’s Roast of Roseanne, following her breakout performance on the 2011 Roast of Charlie Sheen. Amy was most recently on Louie and in Season 2 of HBO’s Girls.
Schumer has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. She was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and as one of Entertainment Weekly and Los Angeles Times’ “13 Faces to Watch in 2013.” She had a recurring role on Season 3 of Adult Swim’s Delocated and guest starred in the latest season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. In 2011 she filmed the feature Seeking a Friend for the End of the World starring Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley and Price Check, an independent feature opposite Parker Posey which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Her album Cutting placed in the top five of the Billboard Charts and has been included on multiple Best Comedy Albums of the Year awards’ lists.
Her network debut came in 2007 when she starred on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and soon after co-starred on 30 Rock, and her own Comedy Central Presents special. She co-hosted Hoppus on Music with Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 on Fuse and this summer made her fourth appearance at the Montreal Comedy Festival.
