Amy Schumer Sets New Threshold In Celebrity Leagues By Bragging $9 Million Book Deal

Standup comedian and actress Amy Schumer is laughing her way to the bank with a $9M book deal. The 34-year-old actress, who is best known for the sketch-comedy series “Inside Amy Schumer”, has given the term feminism a true explanation with her smart yet entertaining stands in recent time.

This time the best buddy of Jennifer Lawrence let her fans another chance to yell as recent updates are saying that she had sold a memoir to Simon & Schuster in a high-seven-figure-deal. Well her fans may endure a sense of déjà vu as a same sort rumor has been smoked up even two years before which said that “The Tonight Show” host had sold a book of autobiographical essays in equally lucrative cost to Harper Collins. Even she was awarded with a $1 million advance for the publication but later the comedian cancelled the contract and returned the advance citing a reason of her busy schedule that had prevented her to focus on the book. Even during her first rumored publication, she was co-jointly working with Patricia Marx, a New York writer, who was helping Schumer to write a more enriched content.

Now Schumer has landed another book deal that may stick around $8 million to $9 million. The deal was determined in a frenzied auction, held shortly after Schumer won an Emmy. Though she stands a newbie in the comedy block but earned raves from different platforms and has become a brand of subversive feminism comedy for her unconventional comic streams that call for self-mockery.

Well, she has made a remarkable debut in the Judd Apatow’s box office hit rom com “Train Wreck” and has floored the audience. She even is credited as one of the “100 most influential people” by Time Magazine this year. Now adding a new feather in her hat, Simon & Schuster imprint Gallery Books plans to publish her book in late 2016. So undoubtedly it becomes clear that the spunky Manhattan girl has to go a long way with her creative part.
