Amy Schumer has never looked worse

On Tuesday, Amy Schumer looked a bloody mess on the set of “Inside Amy Schumer” in New York City. The comedian sported special-effects makeup around her neck so her head appears detached from her body once the skit airs. As if the gore on her neck weren’t enough, the 34-year-old was also spotted working an open wound on her thigh. While it’s unclear if Schumer shared a snap of her gruesome makeup with boyfriend Ben Hanisch, we’re certain he would have gushed over it either way. The furniture designer has taken to Instagram on multiple occasions to praise his famous gal pal since they went public with their romance.
