About Pow Wow

FSU’s Homecoming Pow Wow, sponsored by the Student Government Association, is an annual evening of entertainment and laughter held on the night before Florida State University’s Homecoming football game. Since the inaugural 1948 pep rally, Pow Wow has evolved into a full night of events. Hosted by the voice of the Seminoles, Mr. Gene Deckerhoff, Pow Wow features performances by the FSU cheerleaders, the Golden Girls, the Flying High Circus, the Marching Chiefs, and various other student organizations.

Pow Wow culminates with a headlining comedian.

Comedian Information

Amy Schumer

Photo of 2015 Pow Wow Opener - Amy SchumerSchumer’s provocative and hilariously wicked mind is on full display as she explores topics revolving around sex, relationships, and the general clusterf*ck that is life through a series of scripted vignettes, stand-up comedy, and man-on-the-street interviews. The show will return for a 4th season next year.

She can currently be seen in Universal’s Trainwreck that Schumer wrote and starred in alongside Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton and Brie Larson. Judd Apatow produced and directed the feature film that was released back in July. HBO will premiere her first one-hour comedy special, AMY SCHUMER: LIVE AT THE APOLLO, which Chris Rock is directing on October 17th.

Schumer’s hit one-hour stand-up special, Mostly Sex Stuff, stands as the highest rated Comedy Central original stand-up special since 2011. She was also one of the featured comedians on Comedy Central’s Roast of Roseanne, which followed her memorable and quotable performance on the 2011 Roast of Charlie Sheen. She was recently seen in such critically acclaimed series as FX’s Louie and HBO’s Girls. Previously, Schumer had a recurring role on the third season of Adult Swim’s Delocated, and guest starred in the latest season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. On the big screen, Schumer filmed the feature Seeking a Friend for the End of the World starring Steve Carrell and Kiera Knightley, as well as Price Check, an independent feature opposite Parker Posey which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

Her album Cutting placed in the top 5 of the Billboard Charts and has been included on multiple Best Comedy Albums of the Year awards’ lists. The comic made her network debut in 2007 when she starred on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and soon after co-starred on 30 Rock and received her own Comedy Central Presents special. She co-hosted Hoppus on Music with Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 on Fuse and made her fifth appearance at the Montreal Comedy Festival this summer. Schumer is a founding member of The Collective, a New York based Theatre Company, and a graduate of The William Esper studio where she studied for 3 years.
