Amy Schumer Got Surprise-Married

Human nature is funny. We are so easily distracted by things like our cell phones and our computer screens and nuclear warnings that turn out to be a false alarm that we are missing the life happening right in front of our very faces.

Like, Amy Schumer’s marriage to a man named Chris Fischer.


Schumer married Fischer on Tuesday in front of people like Jennifer Lawrence, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Larry David – a casual crowd if I ever did hear of one.

Schumer shared the photos of the wedding on her Instagram Thursday.

Who is Chris Fischer? Great question. He is a man with whom Schumer has been seen in public approximately two times throughout the duration of the relationship. He is a chef who lives on Martha’s Vineyard and now he is Amy Schumer’s husband.

That is his official new identity.

Congratulations Amy! Nice to meet you Chris! Welcome to the family.
