Amy Schumer gave a hilarious speech at the Glamour Awards, in which she said weight is no obstacle to romance.

Schumer, who was presented her award for Trailblazer of the Year by Jennifer Saunders, said: "I'm not nervous."

She added: "I'm very glamorous. I don't feel out of place here."

Schumer went on to explain: "I'm probably like 160lbs right now and I can catch a dick any time I want."

The comic has been known for making strong statements with her comedy, including her sketch The Last F**kable Day, which pokes fun at ageism in Hollywood; and Girl You Don't Need Makeup, a painfully funny One Direction music video parody.

She also parodies the way some female actors present themselves  on talk-shows.

Schumer's sketches are showcased on her US programme Inside Amy Schumer.

"It will be very exciting when what I am doing isn't trailblazing anymore," she said, "but I'm very happy to have gotten this."

Peppering her speech with comic tangents and one-liners, Schumer said: "I'm SO desperate for a selfie with Goldie Hawn that I'm not even going to ask. I would just want it for me, like I would just look at it every night and be like: 'Goodnight.'"

 She continued: "My mom told me I didn't need to shave above my legs above the knee. I basically look like Christopher Robin down there."

Having advised women to "definitely get vaccinated for HPV", Schumer added that she had one goal for the night.

And that goal was "to take my underwear off at the end of the night and not make it look like I blew my nose on it."
