Amy Schumer Talks Mother's Day with Son Gene — and He Adorably Crashes the Interview!

Amy Schumer (and Son Gene!) Make Her Ultimate Late-Night Snack In Preview of Her New Cooking Show

One thing has kept Schumer and Fischer busy: their new cooking show, Amy Schumer Learns to Cook. 

Filmed with the help of their nanny Jane during the pandemic, the eight-episode series – which premieres on the Food Network on Monday — finds Fischer teaching Schumer how to make a handful of meals (while she channels her bartending past to mix a few drinks).

"It was really weird," Schumer said on Today, explaining how her standup past made filming the show without an audience difficult for her. "We hope you like it. We don't know if it's good, we hope it is!"

Regardless of how it plays for audiences, Fisher said the experience was positive for his wife.

"She's a great student," he explained. "She really focuses and listens and isn't afraid to mess up. That's an important attribution. You have to roll with anything, that's sort of the point of the show."

Schumer agreed, recalling just how much she's learned.

"I really have no information or knowledge," Schumer added. "I was thinking about this: I went to college, I learned how to make a couple of dishes from my mom, and then I was on the road as a standup comic. You're not like, cooking at a hotel in Toledo."

Before, she knew how to make "a nice scrambled egg, a nice toast" plus one dinner: "skirt steak, creamed spinach, and a baked potato."

"Tat's all that was in my tool belt," Schumer said. "Now I know how to make tons of stuff. It's horrible. I have no excuse not to help."
