Amy Schumer Hospitalized in Hawaii While Shooting Movie

NEW YORK (AP) – A visit to Hawaii for most people is relaxing and fun — but not for Amy Schumer.

The comedian says she was hospitalized this summer with bronchitis while shooting a film with Goldie Hawn in Hawaii.

As a guest Monday night on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Schumer said she had difficulty speaking, was bedridden and coughed so much that she fractured some ribs.

“Hawaii — it didn’t totally agree with me,” Schumer joked.

The comedian, who is publicizing her book “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo,” is taking a break from her sketch-comedy series “Inside Amy Schumer” so she can tour and focus on writing.
