“That seemed short to me, so I said right before I went up to Bill, the guy who runs the show, ‘It says 45 minutes, is that right?’ And he said, ‘Yep, that’s it,'” Amy said. “This is my first experience, I didn’t have anybody with me to tell me any different, so I did what I was told to do.
“It was a rookie mistake, but I was following directions,” she explained. “I feel horrible about it, but I promise it wasn’t out of laziness, or that I didn’t care about the crowd I have to be out there, it was just a rookie mistake, and I am apologizing they had to pay for it.”
Some of Schumers fans, who paid around $80 a comedy ticket, have asked for a refund from venue. However officials have yet to decide what to do on the refund request.
