Nearly a year after the release of her movie “Trainwreck,” Amy Schumer will return to the live stand-up comedy stage in 2016. Schumer will perform at the Bryce Jordan Center on Friday, April 8.

Famous for her sketch comedy television show “Inside Amy Schumer,” Schumer has won numerous awards, including an Emmy, a Writers’ Guild Award, and a Peabody Award for the popular Comedy Central series. She also hosted “Saturday Night Live” and was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2015. Schumer also wrote and starred in her first movie “Trainwreck” released in July 2015 alongside Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton and Brie Larson. Judd Apatow produced and directed the feature film.

Schumer’s one-hour HBO comedy special, “Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo,” directed by Chris Rock, premiered on October 17. It was HBO’s most watched Saturday night comedy special debut since December 2009. Her first book was recently purchased by the Simon & Schuster imprint Gallery Books and will be released later this year.

Schumer’s most recent tour, entitled the Back Door Tour, concluded in 2014. She has indicated that she will go on tour this fall via Twitter, although additional performance dates and locations have not yet been announced. Schumer’s only other announced performance date at this time is June 23 at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY. This will be her first time headlining at Madison Square Garden.

Ticket information for Schumer’s Centre County debut will become available soon, according to the Bryce Jordan Center.
