Amy Schumer is a comedic force to be reckoned with. Part of this generation’s class of “feminist” comedians (or, as many would prefer to call them, “comedians”), Schumer has blended well-honed punch lines and rough edges to dominate America’s attention — whether it’s through Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, last year’s Judd Apatow-directed Trainwreck, or her recently released memoir, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.
Now the R-rated comedian is returning to the road with “#schumertour,” a stand-up set that talks up and tears down everything from gun control and performing at Hillary Clinton’s birthday to body image and numerous sexcapades. Schumer takes the stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 22, at Gila River Arena, 9400 West Maryland Avenue in Glendale. Tickets range from $39 to $109, plus applicable fees, and are available by calling the box office at 623-772-3800 or through www.ticketmaster.com. For more tour details, click www.amyschumer.com.
