Just a day after the Edinburgh Fringe finishes, she'll bring the #SchumerTour to Edinburgh Playhouse for one night on August 30.

The 35-year-old will entertain Manchester's O2 Apollo on September 3 and finish at London's O2 Arena the following night.

She'll also be visiting Amsterdam, Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen during her tour.

Amy is best known for her TV sketch show Inside Amy Schumer, which has won two Emmys, and for her leading role in Trainwreck, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination and a Critics' Choice award.

Her tour coincides with the release of her first book, The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo, which will no doubt boost UK sales.

Tickets go on sale on June 10.
