Amy Schumer forced to cancel Netflix Is A Joke Festival after COVID-19 test

Amy Schumer was forced to cancel her performance at the Netflix Is A Joke Festival 2022 just hours before she was due to take the stage after being positive on COVID-19.

The 40-year-old stand-up comedian revealed the news to her 11.6 million followers in a video she posted on her Instagram Story on Saturday.

‘I’m sorry to have to say I have to cancel a performance in LA tonight. I am the first woman to ever get COVID ‘, the mother of one child revealed to her fans.

She continued: ‘I tested positive for COVID-19 about an hour ago, so yes, please, I don’t know [what to say]but at least my hair looks good. ‘

An hour later, she posted another shot, after changing into black pajamas and gathering her hair in a ponytail, to consider having to isolate herself from her husband Chris Fischer and their three-year-old son Gene.

In the video, the Life & Beth star admitted to feeling ‘lonely’ and bored, but stopped showing off her ‘amazing voice of Elizabeth Holmes’.

‘This is how I sound now that I have COVID,’ she thought of her deep voice, which sounded eerily similar to that of the disgraced founder of Theranos.

Beneath both posts, Schumer received an outpouring of comments wishing her a speedy recovery.

Just two days ago, while appearing on the Late Night show with Seth Meyers, she and the host talked about how she is one of the few celebrities who has not yet contracted the coronavirus.

“I’m a little smug about it,” she joked. ‘I haven’t eaten it yet.’

Then she pointed to the sky and said, ‘Hey, he is [God] looking out. So stupid. ‘

Last week was especially stressful for the star, who attended Monday’s Met Gala and pro-choice rally in Manhattan just days before she flew to Los Angeles for her performance, which was eventually canceled.
