This is the year of Amy Schumer, so it makes sense that she'll finish up 2015 with her own HBO comedy special. The first teaser for the special is full of what we've come to expect from Schumer: plenty of jokes at her own expense and references to her love of wine.

It actually looks like a bottle of wine will be replacing the customary bottle of water on stage. Adding to the excitement of an extended Schumer set is the fact that stand-up legend, Chris Rock, is directing. Schumer's last stand-up special, Amy Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff, came out in 2012. In 2013 she was featured on the special Women Who Kill.

Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo
will air on HBO on October 17. That's plenty of time to ask your friend for their HBO Go password.
