AMY SCHUMER COMES TO NETFLIX WITH ALL-NEW ORIGINAL STAND-UP COMEDY SPECIAL LAUNCHING TUESDAY, MARCH 7th

Beverly Hills, Calif., January 10, 2017 -- Netflix, the world's leading Internet TV network, is bringing its members an all-new stand-up special from one of the leading forces in entertainment and comedy today, Amy Schumer. The special, taped Saturday, November 5 at Denver, Colorado's Bellco Theater, will launch globally on Netflix Tuesday, March 7th, 2017.

"As a comedian, actress, writer, director, producer and best-selling author, 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," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix.

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

"Totally fearless and always hilarious, Amy Schumer's bold and singular voice in comedy is a brilliant match for Netflix and our global comedy fans," said Lisa Nishimura, VP of Original Documentary and Comedy.

Every day, Netflix members in 190 countries around the world discover a fresh new voice or an all-new special from one of their favorite comedians on Netflix. On the heels of becoming the home for all-new stand-up comedy specials from Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, Netflix continues to thrive as a hub for top original comedy specials, including the 2016 Emmy-nominated shows from both John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt (2016 Emmy winner for Writing for a Variety Special), and recent specials from Cedric the Entertainer, Iliza Shlesinger, Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy, Russell Peters, Ali Wong, Mike Epps, Aziz Ansari, Anjelah Johnson, Bill Burr, Chris Tucker, Demetri Martin, Chelsea Handler, Bo Burnham, Jim Jefferies, David Cross, Joe Rogan, Dana Carvey, Colin Quinn (directed by Jerry Seinfeld), Michael Che, Reggie Watts, Gabriel Iglesias, Jen Kirkman and Jim Gaffigan. Additional upcoming comedy specials include Neal Brennan and Cristela Alonzo.

With her unique point of view and no-holds-barred approach to comedy, Amy Schumer has fast become a force to be reckoned with and one of the most notable names in entertainment. Her groundbreaking Comedy Central sketch series, "Inside Amy Schumer," where she serves as creator, star, writer, director and executive producer, premiered to critical acclaim in 2013 and has gone on to win the first-ever "Outstanding Sketch Variety Series" Emmy Award in 2015. Also among the show's numerous accolades and honors are the 2015 Writers Guild Award for "Best Comedy/Variety Sketch Series," the 2015 Television Critics Association's "Individual Achievement in Comedy" and "Outstanding Achievement in Comedy," the 2015 Critic's Choice Television Award for "Best Actress in a Comedy Series," and the prestigious Peabody Award in 2014.

Schumer took the film world by storm in 2015 with the international smash hit, "Trainwreck." Penned by and starring the comedian, the box-office sensation garnered two Golden Globes nominations, including "Best Actress, Comedy or Musical" for Schumer and "Best Picture, Comedy or Musical." She was also honored with the Critic's Choice Award for "Best Actress in a Comedy" and received a Writers' Guild Award nod for "Original Screenplay." Additionally, the British Academy of Film and Television (BAFTA) in 2015 honored Schumer with The Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for "Excellence in Comedy."

As a stand-up comic, Schumer continues to tour to sold-out crowds around the world. Most notably, she's sold out London's The O2 Arena and became the first female to sell out New York's iconic Madison Square Garden -- which she's now done twice. Her 2015 HBO comedy special, "Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo," was directed by Chris Rock and earned three Emmy Award nominations, including "Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special," "Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special" and "Outstanding Variety Special," as well as a Writers Guild Award nomination for "Best Comedy/Variety Special." Schumer -- whose debut book, "The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo," was released in August 2016 and quickly topped The New York Times Best Sellers list, where it still enjoys a spot after 15 weeks -- is currently in production on 20th Century Fox's untitled mother-daughter adventure comedy feature opposite Goldie Hawn and can next be seen in the independent film "Thank You for Your Service," an adaptation of the David Finkel book by the same name.
