Amy Schumer is probably best known for her standup, and her work in film — but her next project comes in a different medium.
Debuting on HBO Max on July 9 on HBO Max, Expecting Amy is a docuseries that follows a pregnant Schumer as she takes her standup special, Growing, on the road.
In the clip above from Jimmy Kimmel Live!, guest host Billy Eichner asks her what it was like to be that open on camera.
“You’ve always been incredibly honest — brutally honest — in a hilarious way, but in this docuseries you are so open, so raw physically, emotionally, and I want to know now that it’s getting released out into the world, how are you feeling?” Eichner asks.
“It’s so personal, it’s like my family — it couldn’t be any more personal,” responds Schumer, before explaining that while it’s odd to see what is essentially her pregnancy being reviewed by critics, she’s never had a problem with being open in a public setting.
“I think there’s something wrong with me, truth be told,” she says. “I don’t know why, I’ve just always felt so unapologetic about that stuff.”
