Amy Schumer taken to hospital in Hawaii while shooting movie


A visit to Hawaii for most people is relaxing and fun - but not for Amy Schumer.

The comedian says she was taken to hospital with bronchitis while shooting a film with Goldie Hawn in Hawaii earlier this summer.

Appearing on Monday night on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Amy said she had difficulty speaking, was bedridden and coughed so much that she fractured some ribs.

"Hawaii - it didn't totally agree with me," Amy joked.

The comedian is promoting her new book The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo.

She recently announced she is taking a break from her sketch-comedy series Inside Amy Schumer so she can tour and focus on writing.
