Kim And Kanye Get Upstaged On The Red Carpet By Amy Schumer. So Who Is She?

Someone dared to prank Kimye on at the Time 100 Gala last night…

When you've spent a fair while getting ready for a big red carpet event, the last thing you want to happen is to be upstaged by someone throwing themselves in front of you

Unfortunately for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, this was exactly what happened at last night's Time 100 Gala, when comedian and actress Amy Schumer dived in front of the married couple as they posed for photographers.


In any other circumstance, we're pretty certain Kanye would have no problem with someone throwing themselves at his feet. But last night he looked less than impressed at Ms Schumer's antics.

'I saw them and I said to my publicist, "Can I pretend to fall?", Schumer explained to Time of her decision to prank Kimye. 'And she said, "I can't stop you." We can see how it would have been a hard thing to resist.

Kanye might not have found it funny (Kim at least managed a smirk), but we did. So who is this Schumer woman?

She's very funny
Some of you may have seen or heard of her show Inside Amy Schumer, which has just returned for a third series on Comedy Central. Mixing stand-up with sketches as well as interviews with people on the street, Schumer parodies popular culture like no-one else.

She's been in some of our favourite shows
As well as being a seasoned comedy writer and stand-up, Amy has also had cameos in some of our favourite comedy shows including Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm and 30 Rock as well as holding a recurring role on Adult Swim in Dislocated.

She hangs out with all the best women
We're talking Tina Fey, Patricia Arquette and Julia Louis Dreyfuss who have all appeared in her show. If you can get all those ladies on board, then you are definitely doing something right.
