Amy Schumer jokes about beau in stand-up routine
Amy Schumer has joked the media were surprised her boyfriend Ben Hanisch is so good-looking.
The 34-year-old comedienne and her furniture designer beau went public with their romance in January (16) and things appear to be going swimmingly so far.
On Sunday night (27Mar16), Amy performed a surprise 45-minute set in the Stand Up NY club and tested out material for her upcoming tour, which kicks off 7 April (16) in Reading, Pennsylvania.
Among her gags were several about her beau, with an attendee telling the New York Post's Page Six column: "She joked the press is surprised that Ben’s good-looking, and that she met his parents."
Amy was opening for her friend, comedian Rachel Feinstein.
The event was so busy, despite Amy's performance being a surprise one, that the club was forced to come up with somewhere for Ben to sit to watch his girl in action.
“It was sold out, so the club pulled out a chair for Ben. He sat in a doorway,” the insider added.
Amy has previously laughed off the public interest in her new dating developments after poking fun at her single status throughout 2015.
"Apparently having a boyfriend is the biggest accomplishment of the year for me," Amy told Entertainment Tonight on the 2016 Golden Globe Awards red carpet shortly after the couple made its debut on social media. "I also wrote a movie I starred in. I'm really proud of that, I worked on gun violence, but yeah, someone has agreed to have sex with me."
Her new man also has a big fan in Amy's close pal, Jennifer Lawrence, who gushed to Extra earlier this year (16), "Ben's great. Ben is, like, hot and, like, when I first saw him I was like, 'Ohhh...' He's super sweet, he does not have to be that nice 'cause he's hot."
