Comedian and Stern Show regular Amy Schumer stopped by on Tuesday morning and thanked Howard for his part in getting her her big break in Hollywood. It happened after Stern Show celebrity superfan Judd Apatow heard Amy on air during a previous visit with Howard and, just as he did with Lena Dunham, called Amy up and told her he’d love to hear any ideas she might have. Amy did have an idea for a movie and wrote up a script in just 10 days. Judd liked what he read, so much so he offered to direct the film, the first time he’s ever directed a movie he didn’t write himself. The film is called “Trainwreck” and it starts shooting in May.

Amy was also in the mood to celebrate another major milestone in her life: her very first one-night stand. Amy revealed to Howard she hooked up with a military man she was sitting next to on a recent flight. She admitted to being so attracted to him that it was “a chemical reaction.” Though it was a very smooth trip, she gripped his arm as if some phantom turbulence made her nervous. “Oh my God,” she told Howard she nervously gushed to him, “Did you feel that?”

Amy said her travel companion was British and wasn’t aware she was incredibly famous in the U.S., so she was able to relate to him on a person-to-person level. They exchanged emails and ended up meeting later that night. They made out at a bar and she took him to her hotel room. They had sex three times before she kicked him out. “He was like an animal and it was nice,” she said.

She was so enamored with the experience that she is loath to repeat it – she doesn’t want to spoil a perfect one-night stand.

Amy is also celebrating the second season of her smash hit Comedy Central series “Inside Amy Schumer.”
