(Entertainment) Amy Schumer Says Chris Rock Connected Her With Madonna, Opening for NYC Shows

How did Amy Schumer get tapped as Madonna‘s opener for her upcoming New York concerts? Just ask Chris Rock. Schumer says that Rock’s the one who brought the two famous ladies together. “It was the craziest thing. Chris Rock called me a couple of months ago and was like, ‘Madonna wants your phone number,'” Schumer says. “I’m like, ‘I can’t believe you have my phone number!'” Madonna then called personally to ask if she’d open for her. “My answer was, ‘Of course,’” Schumer says. “There is no one in the world I’d want to open for more.”

And while she may be a little nervous—”These shows could be really rough for me because they’re waiting for Madonna and then I’m out there telling jokes”—she knows there’s one happy benefit to this gig. “I’m just excited to be close up to the stage and scream sing her songs.”
