Stand-up comedian and “chick who can hang” Amy Schumer will bring her unique and unrepentant brand of humor to the MTV Movie Awards as host of the 24th annual show.
“I am honored to be hosting the awards,” Schumer said in a statement on Wednesday. “I will carry the audience with me like a teen mom #breaktheinternet #breakmywater.”
Her Emmy-nominated comedy series, Inside Amy Schumer, is set to return to Comedy Central in April.
“Wickedly funny and sharply insightful, Amy Schumer is perhaps the most ascendant talent in comedy today and she’s on the brink of an epic year,” MTV president Stephen Friedman said. “We are thrilled to work with Amy to create an unpredictable and hilarious showcase for Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters and brightest stars in what promises to be the most combustible Movie Awards ever.”
The 2015 MTV Movie Awards will take place Sunday, April 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. Nominees will be announced at a later date.
