She sings, she dances, she acts, she has a new skincare line. But does she kill in a comedy club?
Madonna added another notch to her creative belt on Tuesday night when she took the stage alongside pal Amy Schumer at New York’s legendary Comedy Cellar. The singer posted several pics from the surprise set, including one in which she’s standing next to Schumer, writing “And the next minute i was tagging along with @amyschumer at @nycomedycellar Making my stand up debut! What a thrill. Finally busted my cherry thank you Amy!”

The pairing was not as weird as it seems, as Madonna opened for Schumer in October at Madison Square Garden in a bid to encourage people to vote for then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, returning a favor for the time Schumer opened for Madonna at MSG in 2015. Schumer, as you might imagine, had some fun with her friend’s stand-up debut, writing “We’d like to thank @nycomedycellar for taking a chance on our new act.”
Fans who attended the show were blown away by the lineup at the surprise all-star show, which also included unannounced appearances by a murderer’s row of comedians, including Aziz Ansari, Louis C.K., Pete Holmes and Jon Stewart.
