Amy Schumer opens book tour for essay collection

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Actress and comedian Amy Schumer has launched the book tour for her collection of very personal essays, "The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo."

Schumer spoke Tuesday night before more than 200 fans at the Barnes & Noble in Manhattan's Union Square.

During her interview with Comedy Central star Abbi Jacobson, Schumer reflected on her early years of standup comedy, saying she often was reduced to tears.

She also discussed why she prefers living with her boyfriends as soon as possible, saying it's better to know the worst before it's too late.

Schumer's book was No. 2 on Amazon.com on Tuesday, trailing only the new Harry Potter release.
