Seems like Amy Schemer is doing just the right thing when it comes to her comic career. Some might consider her rude or a bit “out there” with no filter on how to act and what to say. But whatever she is doing, it is working.
The 35 year old has become the 4th highest paid woman comedian according to Forbes. According to the publication, she’s made $17 million last year. Not only she’s been selling out Madison Square Garden in New York with her stand-up comedy, she’s also had a huge success on TV. She was nominated for an Emmy for the sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer, her film Trainwreck.
Her multi-million dollar book advance for The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo has also added a significant sum to that paycheck.
