Watch a young Amy sing along to a Madonna classic in her “audition” video.
A select group of comedians can claim that they’ve performed at sold-out arenas, but how many can say they’ve performed at sold-out arenas as Madonna‘s opening act? Amy Schumer will earn that bragging right when she opens for the pop superstar during her three-night stay in New York City this September.
The Inside Amy Schumer star shared the news on Twitter on Thursday (June 18), writing, “Guess who auditioned for @Madonna and got the part?” She also shared an impossibly adorable clip of herself “auditioning” for the part — as in, singing along to “Like a Prayer” as a pre-teen.
