Longing for a laugh? Tune in to any Amy Schumer special to get your fill. The hilarious gal is all about pushing the envelope to get us to smile at the unexpected and buckle over when she really brings it on. Her movies are hits, her stand-up is spot-on, and her BFF-quality is contagious. Recently married with a baby on board, Schumer is growing up, but she'll never let her silly side go. Here's more to know about the always-entertaining comedian/actress.
It Started with Stand-Up
Like many comedians who work the stage to do what they love and perfect their craft, Schumer took the stand-up career path. It was the early 2000s and Schumer had the gift of making crowds giggle. This led to a spot on NBC's reality competition, Last Comic Standing, where Schumer came in fourth place. Her success on the show gave Schumer the chance to have her own program on Comedy Central – Inside Amy Schumer. As her fame rose, so did more opportunity.
Silver Screen Success
Box office smashes are not foreign to Schumer. Her over-the-top comedies bring fans to theaters in droves, knowing the film will be funny and filled with Schumer's impeccable timing and carefree charisma. Movies like Trainwreck and I Feel Pretty are perfect examples of why Schumer is such a wide-ranging success. Fans of all ages come together to have a good time and Schumer always delivers.
When one is as talented as Schumer, the creativity doesn't end when the cameras stop rolling. She's also a published author – The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo is reading material for folks who need to escape into page-turning comedic phrasing.
She's a Mrs.
Earlier this year, Schumer tied the knot with chef/farmer Chris Fischer. They recently announced they're expecting their first child. Let's hope their future son or daughter has a wicked sense of humor!
What's Next for Schumer?
As long as her funny bone doesn't whittle down, fans can expect plenty more from Schumer. Movies? Check. Stand-up? Why not? But with a baby on the way, perhaps she'll take a little time off to nest. Although with a mind that was created for comedy, between bottles, burping, and bath time, Schumer's sure to come up with some new material.

The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
