Entertainment Movies Amy Schumer Jokes About Life Post-Breakup from Ex Ben Hanisch at Charity Event in New York City "I'm dating this new dude. He's awesome, he's like Stephen Hawking, sexually." By Karen Mizoguchi and Ale Russian Published on June 8, 2017 11:04 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Amy Schumer is moving on after her breakup from ex-boyfriend Ben Hanisch by laughing about it. “I went through a breakup about a month ago. We were a year and a half, you know, it’s not that bad,” Schumer, 36, told the crowd Thursday evening at the Hilarity for Charity Variety Show in New York City. The actress and furniture designer confirmed their amicable split to PEOPLE in May and not much had been disclosed about their breakup — until now. Gareth Cattermole/Getty “We went out with a couple who had been together a long time, we were trying to rush the intimacy,” Schumer continued. “Like I was trying to impress the girl and I was like ‘Well he woke me up this morning with a fart!’ And he just slowly turned to me and he goes are ‘We doing this?'” Adding, “And I was like ‘No, no, no, no, we’re not opening fire. Don’t tell me any of the disgusting s— I’ve done.'” As for her single life these days, Schumer poked fun at that too. “I’m dating this new dude. He’s awesome, he’s like Stephen Hawking, sexually,” the Snatched star joked. FROM COINAGE: 5 Financial Mistakes to Avoid in Your 20s The comedian and Hanisch met on a dating app around November 2015.
