Why 'Trainwreck's' Amy Schumer Finds Your Misery Funny

Amy Schumer’s comedy may pick you up when you’re down, but she’ll also laugh at you in the process.

Believe it or not, the standup comedian has failed funny before, too, and she was able to laugh all the way to the bank.

“I think people trying their hardest and thinking it’s going to work out and then just failing miserably is the funniest thing,” she tells “Made in Hollywood” while promoting “Trainwreck.”

In her first move, the Comedy Central star of “Inside Amy Schumer” plays a character named Amy, a commitment phobic woman whose favorite pastime involves casual sex with random men. Her world is turned upside when she is met with her biggest fear: a good guy who likes her, played by Bill Hader. The movie is written by Schumer, as well. — Written by Mark Gray.
