Comedian and actress Amy Schumer is to perform her stand-up show in the UK for the first time later this year.

The Trainwreck star will appear first at the Edinburgh Playhouse on 30 August, as part of a European tour.

She will then play Manchester Apollo on 3 September and London's O2 Arena the following night.

The 35-year-old tweeted news of the eight-city tour, which also includes a date in Dublin on 26 August, saying: "I'm going abroad!"

Tickets for the UK dates go on sale on 10 June.

The comic has won a number of awards for her TV series, Inside Amy Schumer, including an Emmy for best variety sketch series and Critics' Choice award for best actress in a comedy series.

She will next be seen on the big screen in drama Thank You For Your Service, looking at how post traumatic stress disorder affects soldiers returning home from war, due for release later this year.

She is also currently working on an untitled mother-daughter comedy alongside Goldie Hawn.
