Amy Schumer and J.K. Rowling Totally Fangirled Over Each Other Via Twitter Exchange
Is this a new friendship in the making?
During the most recent stop on the European leg of her stand-up tour, Amy Schumer took to the stage in Edinburgh, Scotland and J.K. Rowling dropped by to witness the comedian’s show in action.
However, it wasn’t until after the Tuesday night performance that Schumer found out that the Harry Potter author had been in the audience and loved every minute of the show.
Following the set, Rowling tweeted about how great the night was:
Just seen the goddess that is @amyschumer live in Edinburgh. What a night 😂❤️

Schumer seemed to be happy to be hearing from the author and did not waste any time responding by asking Rowling’s thoughts on a wizarding world feature of her show:
Thank you so much! Did you like my sister’s gryffindor hat?! https://t.co/phcKMLoMFm

Schumer tweeted a photo in March of her sister stylishly sporting a Gryffindor beanie – we thinks she looks great and so does Rowling. “I *loved* the Gryffindor hat,” she replied.
