NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Comic Amy Schumer made a surprising return to stage this week, just fourteen days after she gave birth.
Schumer, who is 37, performed a brief set in front of a full house at The Comedy Cellar in New York City.
The moment was captured in photos taken by another comedian that was later posted on Schumer’s Instagram account with the caption “I’m Back.”

Multiple media outlets reported that Schumer had a difficult pregnancy and was hospitalized several times due to hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition which inflicts severe nausea and vomiting on the expecting mom. The condition, which apparently afflicted Schumer for the entire time she was pregnant, made performing challenging and led to the cancellation of numerous shows.
Schumer also managed to parlay her pregnancy into some new material. After her set, she posted an image of herself pumping breastmilk, and noting that it was her “outfit of the day.”
