Amy Schumer Jokes About Her Celebrity Status: 'I Think It's Gonna Last Another Six Months'
"Do you guys know I'm really famous now?" the comedian joked while performing standup
In the past year, Schumer, 34, has made her big-screen debut in her box-office hit Trainwreck, won her first Emmy Award, surrounded herself with an A-list group of friends and even found new love. Needless to say, it’s been a great year for the star – and that’s certainly not lost on her.
“Do you guys know I’m really famous now?” the comedian joked while performing standup at upfront presentation for Comedy Central – home of her hit show Inside Amy Schumer – in New York on Thursday, according to USA Today. “I think it’s gonna last another six months. Obviously, I’ve got behavioral issues.”
And while Schumer’s newfound fame has its perks (like, being “very rich”), she’s the first to admit that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be.
“I didn’t know what being famous would be like,” she explained. “You can imagine, and then it actually really blows. You’re like ‘Boo-hoo’ and yes, I’m very rich now. Very rich. But now, I get to have things like: If I walk down the street in New York, people going, ‘Oh my god, I never do this, but would you f— my brother?’ ”

“You’re everywhere,” a faux doctor tells an aghast Schumer in the clip. “Magazines. This Instagram photo of you on the subway wearing a poncho, Amy?”
But if there’s one thing we count on, it’s that Schumer isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
