Amy Schumer Leaves The Bryce Jordan Center In Tears

Stand-up comedienne and “Trainwreck” star Amy Schumer had fans rolling during her performance at the Bryce Jordan Center Friday night. Schumer’s brother Jason and his three-piece jazz band and stand-up comedian Sam Morril opened the show at 8 p.m.

Before Schumer took the stage, she showed never-before-seen clips from her new season of “Inside Amy Schumer.” She walked on stage, bottle of wine in hand, and danced to the song from her famous skit, “Milk, Milk, Lemonade.” Schumer poked fun at Penn State and Greek life, mentioning that the Nittany Lion is a made-up animal before leading a spirited “We Are” chant.

Schumer continued with stories about blacking out and hooking up from her days at Towson University.

“I started eating crackers and using butter as if it were guacamole,” she said. She also mocked the fashion and magazine industry for shaming women. “I didn’t know this, but if you’re in a movie and you weigh over 140 pounds, it hurts people’s eyes.”

The comedienne used her coarse sense of humor to talk about issues like fat shaming, the election season, and gun control laws. Schumer took a more serious tone and touched on the “Trainwreck” movie theater shooting in Louisiana and her goals to create stricter gun control laws.

“Most of the time, when you mention anything about guns, people don’t want to hear what you’re saying…and I know where I am right now,” Schumer said.

She also referenced being accused of stealing other comedians’ material, to which she replied, “In my defense, I didn’t know that somebody already covered the difference between men and women.”

Schumer closed the show with more jokes about Hollywood culture and other comedians like Mindy Kaling and played “Milkshake” by Kelis as she danced off the stage.

Overall, Schumer kept fans laughing throughout the evening and did not disappoint a packed BJC.
