• Amy Schumer tour dates canceled amid pregnancy complications

    Amy Schumer canceled her remaining tour dates due to pregnancy complications over the weekend. While Schumer is uncomfortably ill, she assured her fans that, “the baby and I are healthy and everything looks good.”

    On Saturday, Schumer posted on Instagram that she needed to cancel the remainder of her tour for both her and her baby’s health. Schumer began her current national tour in November in New York. She was scheduled to have four more performances, including a final show on March 3 in Austin, TX.

    Amy Schumer’s hyperemesis sidelines tour

    Schumer, who is in her third trimester, suffers from a condition called hyperemesis which causes her to be constantly nauseous. The condition is more severe than typical morning sickness. In her trademark style of oversharing, she explained in her Instagram post that, “I vomit mostly every time i ride in a car even for 5 minutes.” Doctors do not wish for the I Feel Pretty star to fly for the remainder of the pregnancy. Schumer, who announced her pregnancy in October on Instagram, is pregnant with her first child with chef Chris Fischer.

    The Inside Amy Schumer creator was hospitalized for her the same condition in November. At that time, she posted a photograph of herself in a hospital bed and announced that she would have to reschedule her Texas tour dates. She said, “I have hyperemesis and it blows. Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bullshit!” It also blows to be an Amy Schumer fan in Texas.

    Netflix ‘pregnant’ with mothers-to-be stand-up specials

    Schumer’s upcoming one-hour special, Amy Schumer: Growing, premieres on Netflix on March 19. Like her Netflix debut, The Leather Special, Schumer will still discuss sex, but she will also delve into her marriage and pregnancy. Ali Wong discussed similar topics in her Netflix debut, Baby Cobra, recorded when she was seven-months pregnant. She taped her second special, Hard Knock Wife, also while she was seven-months pregnant. Similarly, Natasha Leggero recorded her Honeymoon Special with husband Moshe Kasher while very pregnant.

    Refunds for Schumer’s remaining tour dates are available at point of purchase.
