Amy Schumer in GQ

Comedy It Girl Amy Schumer is gracing the cover of GQ’s August comedy issue, which declares her “the funniest woman in the galaxy.” Inside the magazine, GQ “charts how she became the funniest, gutsiest comedian in America” and does a six-photo “Star Wars”-themed pictorial, courtesy of Mark Seliger exclusively for GQ.

The comedian is doing amazing things on her Comedy Central show, “Inside Amy Schumer,” and has a new movie out, “Trainwreck,” which is at 93 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow craft a winning portrait of a good time Sally in the grip of her first serious relationship,” writes Variety’s Scott Foundas, while Entertainment Weekly’s Chris Nashawaty says, “Schumer gives their raunchy rom-com enough of her signature spikiness to prevent it from ever feeling predictable.”
