Newly minted Emmy Award winning comedian, actress and writer Amy Schumer, star of this summer’s hit movie “Trainwreck” and creator and star of “Inside Amy Schumer” on Comedy Central, will bring her honest, unapologetic sense of humor to Portland’s Cross Insurance Arena on Saturday, Nov. 7.

Tickets for Schumer’s stop in Portland, promoted by Bill Blumenreich Presents, will go on sale to the public at noon on Friday, Oct. 2 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster.

Amy Schumer is the creator, star, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody Award winning “Inside Amy Schumer,” the popular Comedy Central television series which premiered in April 2013 to the network’s highest season premiere ratings of the year. The show, whose fourth season premieres next year, won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Sketch Show at this year’s ceremony, and also earned Schumer a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. She also won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

Schumer can next be seen in her one-hour HBO comedy special, “Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo,” directed by Chris Rock, premiering on Oct. 17. Her first book will be published by the Simon & Schuster imprint Gallery Books in late 2016. It was the highest advance that the publishing house has given to a female author.

Schumer’s hit one-hour stand-up special for Comedy Central, “Mostly Sex Stuff,” stands as the network’s highest rated original stand-up special since 2011, and she has been featured regularly on Comedy Central Roasts. She was recently seen in such critically acclaimed series as FX’s “Louie” and HBO’s “Girls.” The comic made her network debut in 2007 when she starred on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”
