The comedian shared the good news on “The Late Show With David Letterman.”
“I just found out before I came out — we’ve got a fourth season,” Schumer told the veteran late-night host, prompting congratulations from him and a round of applause from the audience.
When asked if the show gets easier as she goes along, she replied: “I find that I am getting easier … I mean sexually, Dave.” Leading the embarrassed host to ask if she is engaged or dating anyone. “My status is I’m totally single,” she said, claiming she had been dating an infectious disease doctor but he was a secret alcoholic. “That’s my thing.”
Fresh off hosting the MTV Movie Awards, Schumer later told Letterman that she can’t be trusted around celebrities and had stalked Bradley Cooper backstage.
“Thank you Dave and @Brianteta and everyone on the @Letterman crew. I am so honored I got to be on the show so many times before the end!” Schumer tweeted after the episode aired.
