Chasing Amy 

When: Tue., May 19, 8 p.m. 2015
Amy Schumer has got it going on. The attractive blond comic stars in Inside Amy Schumer, a successful show on Comedy Central that just returned for a second season. She’s also just written the script to Trainwreck, the new Judd Apatow flick due out this summer. Her popularity is at a peak. But things weren’t always so peachy. “I had a good upbringing, just the normal horrible childhood insecurities and looking all fucked up,” she told us last year as she was finishing the Trainwreck script. “My parents made me over confident. That was my problem. I didn’t realize until later years that they had been lying to me.” She’s proud of the fact that she was voted “class clown” and “teacher’s worst nightmare” upon graduating from high school. “I was a really funny kid and everybody really liked me — I’m just kidding,” she says. “I had behavioral problems and was barely functioning.” After studying acting in college, she channeled those childhood experiences into her comedy routines and made her standup debut 10 years ago. She performs tonight at 8 at the State Theatre. Tickets are $39.50. (Niesel)
