Amy Schumer stand-up comedy special headed to Netflix

UPI News Service, 01/11/2017 

Amy Schumer is headed to Netflix.

The 35-year-old "Inside Amy Schumer" star will make her debut on the streaming site March 7 with a stand-up comedy special that was filmed at the Bellco Theater in Denver in November 2016.

"Very happy to be a part of the Netflix family for this special," the actress and comedian said, according to Deadline. "Maybe now they will look at my Stranger Things audition tape to play the demogorgon for Season 2."

"Amy Schumer is a boundless threat and a one-of-a-kind talent. We couldn't be more excited that she's making Netflix her home for her next stand-up comedy special," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos added, according to Variety.

The announcement follows news that actor and comedian Chris Rock will star in two original comedy specials for Netflix, the first of which will be taped in 2017.

Dave Chappelle will headline three of his own specials set to premiere simultaneously this year.

Schumer is known for her Comedy Central sketch comedy series, "Inside Amy Schumer," and for writing and starring in the movie "Trainwreck."

She will star in the film "Snatched" with Goldie Hawn and "Thank You for Your Service" with Miles Teller.
