Amy Schumer has postponed a set of stand-up tour dates after falling ill.

The comedian – who is currently pregnant – was scheduled to due to perform in Los Angeles, Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Schumer first posted a video of herself on Instagram throwing up into a cup, later explaining that the future shows would have to cancelled as she was “sick as hell”.

“Los Angeles, Philly and Baltimore have been postponed. I wish I could be there and I’m going to come as soon as possible.

“I will post here and you will be informed by the venue about new dates as soon as we are ready to confirm them. Please contact the venue with any questions about refunds.

“I’m sick as hell and intend to rest until I’m really better.”

Schumer, 37, married celebrity chef Chris Fischer in February and revealed she was expecting in October.

Alongside the video of herself throwing up, she wrote: “I love doing stand-up more than anything and I hate cancelling shows. I have to postpone some until I feel human again.”

Schumer then attacked a Republican politician who was voted to the US Senate earlier this week.

Cindy Hyde-Smith will be the first woman to represent Mississippi in Congress but her campaign was marred by controversy after she made comments about public hanging.

The remark was seen as incendiary as her Democrat rival Mike Espy is an African American and Mississippi has a history of lynchings.

Schumer said of Hyde-Smith: “I don’t usually agree with speaking ill of crackheads, but she has a crackhead looking mouth. Tiny racist teeth confederate ass campaign with her crack mouth said she would attend a public hanging.”
