Actress Amy Schumer: Fame Isn't Fun

You'd think actress Amy Schumer might be enjoying her rapidly accelerating fame. But the comedienne took time Wednesday night to reflect on the downside of her celebrity status. "I'm, like, newly famous, and it turns out it's not fun. Did you guys know that?" she asked her audience. "You're, like, you know that I'm just now learning that my dreams have been a sham, and that it's actually not great and it just only comes with pain." Schumer predicted an end date for her time in Hollywood. "We all know it's going to last another three months because that's how it works."
