America has woken to news that a funny lady named Amy Schumer actually exists.
During the 2015 TIME 100 gala event in New York, the 33-year-old stand-up comedian fell down in front of none other than famous couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

It was scripted, of course, but it has won the hearts of every person with a funny bone in his or her body.
“I saw them, and I asked my publicist, ‘Can I dive in front of them and act like I fell?’ And she said, ‘I can’t stop you,'” Schumer told People.
Kanye did not seem humored by the act, and people thought the star couple was offended by the fake fall. But Schumer clarified how Kardashian was amused by the stunt.
“They were really sweet. Kim was really funny,” Schumer said.
“She goes, ‘Oh my god, I was like, does this girl need help?’ She was like, ‘That was really funny.'”
