Snappy comic Amy Schumer now has a real-life snapper named after her.
We’re told staff at Butch Yamli’s Long Island spot Peter’s Clam Bar dubbed a 100-year-old lobster “Amy” in anticipation of Schumer filming her new Hulu series “Life & Beth” at the seafood spot in the next few weeks.
“The waitstaff and bussers were excited to see her in real life,” says a source. We’re told they chose this specific lobster because of a red streak on its shell, which reminded them of the comedy star’s formerly red hair.
We’re told the lobster could be sold at-market for over $250 but has been given a pardon from the pot in honor of its namesake. The crustacean whisperer tells us that Amy the Lobster will be at Peter’s for a while longer, “but then will be released back into the sea, to live out the rest of her days.”
Schumer is a beloved regular at the historic restaurant. In 2015, Page Six reported she left a $500 tip on a $49 bill after her waiter mentioned that he was “a college student working two jobs to fund his education.”
“Life & Beth” is a romantic comedy written, directed, and executive-produced by Schumer. She is also the star of the ten-episode series that also features Michael Cera and Michael Rapaport.
According to Deadline, the show focuses on Beth, whose “life looks pretty great on paper,” as a wine distributor in Manhattan. But when “a sudden incident forces Beth to engage with her past, her life changes forever. Through flashbacks to her teen self, Beth starts to learn how she became who she is and who she wants to become.”
