Amy Schumer’s HBO Comedy Special to Premiere This Fall

Amy Schumer is coming to HBO on Saturday, Oct. 17.

The A-list comedian’s comedy special, previously announced, marks her first one-off with the premium cabler.

HBO provided a first look at Schumer’s show during the pay cable network’s Thursday presentation at the Television Critics’ Assn. press tour. The clip garnered much laughter in the room of journos and critics.

Chris Rock directs the special, which taped this May at the Apollo Theater in New York. Schumer served as writer and exec produces with Mike Berkowitz and Jimmy Miller.

“Amy is one of the most inspired comics working today, and we hope her first HBO special marks the start of a long and beautiful relationship,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said when announcing the special earlier this year. “This event is even more special because our good friend, the incredibly talented Chris Rock, is directing.”

Schumer — who’s coming off the great box office success from her first major film role with “Trainwreck,” which she starred in and wrote — also headlines her Comedy Central series “Inside Amy Schumer,” which was renewed for a fourth season. Her work on the show earned her first non-writing Emmy nomination for lead comedy actress.
