by Emma Mitchell The stand-up comedian, 36, is set to star in the Broadway production of Meteor Shower







Comedian Amy Schumer is planning to make her Broadway debut in a Steve Martin play. The 36-year-old, who is best known as a stand-up comedian, has landed herself a leading role in the Broadway production of Meteor Shower a play written by Steven Martin over a 20-year period. Meteor Shower will be his second Broadway venture as a writer as he previously collaborated with Edie Brickell on the musical Bright Star.

Amy made the announcement on her Instagram page, writing: "I got to do a Steve Martin play in college and have loved him since I saw him as the waiter in the muppet movie. He is my friend and I just love him and can't believe I get to be in his play on BROADWAY!!!" The play has been described as a cosmic four-person comedy with an absurdist twist, in which Amy will play the wife of the host couple.
