Amy was born in the Upper East Side, in a wealthy family which owed a baby furniture company and had three children. All of them are currently working in the entertainment industry: her younger sister Kimberly is a comedian and producer, just like Amy, meanwhile her brother is a musician. Although the earliest years of Amy’s life were marked by wealth, calmness and comfort, everything started to change dramatically when she turned 9. Around that time her family lost the furniture business and went completely bankrupt. As if that was not enough, Amy’s father was soon diagnosed with multiple scleroses. These problems were too huge to take for the parents and when Amy was 12 they got a divorce. On the bright side, the talent for comedy, which eventually boosted Amy Schumer net worth to one million dollars, was noticeable ever since she was a teenager: the star was voted “class clown” (as well as teacher’s worst nightmare) upon graduation from high school. Despite that, Amy managed to get into college and in 2003 graduated from Towson University with a degree in theatre. Following this Amy moved back to New York City, where she worked as a waitress and bartender in order to pay the bills, while she was simultaneously studying at William Esper Studio.
