Will Amy Schumer Take Her Husband's Last Name?

Amy Schumer's Reason For Not Taking Her Husband's Name Is Understandable, to Be Honest

A post shared by @amyschumer on

A surprising number of celebrities have changed their last names after getting hitched, but Amy Schumer probably won't be one of them. The I Feel Pretty star married chef Chris Fischer in a beautiful surprise ceremony in February, but she actually has a pretty understandable reason for not wanting to become "Amy Fischer," which she recently explained to her dad, Gordon, in a series of videos shared on her Instagram Story on Sunday.

"Are you still Amy Schumer or are you Amy Fischer now?" Gordon asked, before Amy replied, "I'm not Amy Fischer! Do you remember who Amy Fisher is? The Long Island Lolita."

Sure, there's a slight difference in spelling — Fisher vs. Fischer — but clearly Amy doesn't want to risk any connection to the then-Long Island teen who entered into an affair with married man Joey Buttafuoco, and later shot and wounded his wife, Mary Jo Buttafuoco, in 1992. Mary Jo survived the shooting, and Amy Fisher was sent to prison for seven years for first-degree assault. She's since married, had kids, and pursued a career as an adult entertainer. Coincidentally, Amy is also from Long Island and went to high school just a few miles away from the school that Amy Fisher attended, John F. Kennedy High School.

"No, I'm keeping my last name," Amy confirmed to her dad. "I'm keeping your last name."

Regardless of whether she's Amy Schumer or Amy Fischer, the comedian and her new husband — who are in the midst of a food-filled honeymoon through Italy — seem like they couldn't be happier.
