Who Is Amy Schumer's Husband?

Amy Schumer is a married woman! The comedian secretly married boyfriend Chris Fischer on Feb. 13, 2018, as reported by Us Weekly. And no one saw the ceremony coming. After all, they had only been dating for a few months! Given that the couple only went public with their relationship in early February, there's a lot most people don't know about Fischer. Read on to learn everything there is to know about the lucky guy.

He runs his family's farm

In a July 2017 profile in Boston Magazine, Fischer opened up about his plans for his family's Beetlebung Farm in Menemsha, Mass., which was previously owned by his grandfather. But the property is not actually his own — it's set to be inherited by Fischer's father and his father's siblings, all of whom allegedly want to sell the property. Fischer, who described himself as "dead broke" at the time, shared that he's determined to purchase the farm and keep it going in order to open a "destination restaurant" on the premises.

It certainly makes sense for Fisher to take over the farm, as he's spent many years there already. "I spent a lot of time on the farm growing up because my mother was working here, but took over running operations from my aunt, Marie, when she retired in 2010 after 35 years," he told Esquire in 2013. 

"I got into farming partly because I came back from NYC broke and I realized that it only made sense to start using what I was growing," he added. "Now that we're a farm and we've grown and we like the support of our community, I look at the whole picture ... The more money you give directly to farmers, the more they can grow the best food. It benefits everyone."

He worked with a celebrity chef

Back when Mario Batali was beloved for his cooking and his Crocs instead of shamed for his alleged sexual misconduct, Fischer worked under Batali's tutelage at his Babbo restaurant in New York City. He said he was hired after enjoying a meal there himself in 2004.

"I ate a rib-eye steak, which is kind of decadent and maybe silly-sounding, but the whole thing was a transcendent fine-dining experience and my dining companion said, 'If you like it so much, why don't you work here?'" Fischer recalled to Esquire. Fischer then applied at the eatery and was hired as a grill line cook.

But that's not the biggest culinary feat he's accomplished. In 2016, Fischer nabbed the James Beard Award for his 2015 cookbook, The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook.

He's close pals with one of Amy Schumer's famous friends

Fischer revealed to Esquire that he's close friends with actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who once gifted him with a bag that he got with some BAFTA swag. "My friend Jake got this Dunhill bag in a gift bag from the BAFTAs, and like a lot of nice gifts I've gotten from friends, I took it and messed it up and it looks even better than it did to begin with," Fischer said. "It was a nice bag when it started, but now it's beautiful."

Similarly, Schumer has also had her own silly friendship with Gyllenhaal. In September 2015, she bragged to Stephen Colbert about drunkenly eating a cake Gyllenhaal had left in his freezer when she'd rented his apartment.

Another connection Fischer and Schumer have in common? Fischer's sister, who works as Schumer's personal assistant (via The Boston Globe).

The Obamas are big fans of his

In August 2013, Fischer revealed that then-President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle dined at his Beach Plum Restaurant in Martha's Vineyard, Mass. Noting that the Obamas had ordered from the menu — making "no special requests" — Fischer told Esquire, "The couple each had North Tabor Farm greens, served to them by Sadie Dix, daughter of the farm's owners."

Wondering just what America's favorite power couple ordered? Fischer said, "President Obama had the lobster and Michelle had steamed mussels from the Menemsha Mussel Co. For dessert: blueberry upside down cake and coffee from Chilmark Coffee Co."

Sounds like one tasty meal.

He's family-oriented

Fischer works closely with his family on the Beetlebung Farm. And that's exactly how he likes it.

"Because everything is family-made and homemade at the farm, it just made sense that my aunt, Marie Scott would sell her paintings there as well. They're beautiful scenes from the Vineyard and Vermont, where she also spends her time," he told Esquire. "And just outside is where we sell flowers and there's a sign painted by my mother, Jeannie, who was a watercolor artist. She passed away a few years ago, so it's very meaningful to me to have that sign, which was done in her handwriting."

He continued, noting that, while people often have pictures of their family decorating their office, he often has his actual family right there in the office with him. "The whole thing — the farm, the restaurant — is very much family-oriented, and it's nice because it cuts out a lot of the difficult workplace dynamics," Fischer said. "It can be complicated because it's a big family, but it's mainly incredibly helpful."

He's interested in hunting

While he may be used to working both the farm and the kitchen, Fischer is no stranger to hunting. Showing off a spear to Esquire during an August 2013 interview, he explained to the magazine, "I go down and stay with friends in Georgia every now and then."

"I wanted to go boar hunting with them, but I don't have a firearm permit and I can't bring a gun. I decided to take a bow and arrow one time, but it turns out I'm really bad with a bow and arrow, so this past year I thought, 'What's as quiet or quieter than a bow and arrow?'" he said. "So I did some research on spear hunting."

Though he'd been ultimately unsuccessful in hunting down a wild boar, Fischer noted that he liked "the idea of food harvesting being physical and primitive and based on physical attributes, where you have to be part of the hunt, like hunting used to be." 

He used to work with a now-ex-girlfriend

Fischer once made his professional life pretty darn personal. In 2013, he boasted to Esquire about his then-girlfriend Emma, with whom he worked at Beetlebung Farm.

"My girlfriend, Emma, also grew up on the Island, just one town away. She and I met a couple of years ago, and she works on the farm now and does letterpress. She's dedicated to very simple, lovely things and I love the simplicity of her creativity," he gushed. "It's confident and beautiful. And textural. It's fun when we design menus together: She grows the food, we harvest it together and come up with a concept for the food, and then she prints the menu and I have no idea what it's going to look like."

He added, "And then it blows me away every time."

No word on whether she's still employed at the farm now that Fischer is a married man!

He's clearly low-key

Schumer and Fischer managed to keep their relationship under wraps for the few months they were together before their wedding, despite having a lot of famous friends. Their secrecy was probably due in a large part to Fischer's down-home, low-key nature. After all, Schumer and Fischer only became Instagram official after attending Ellen DeGeneres' birthday party together in early February 2018. This is a stark contrast to Schumer's relationship with furniture designer Ben Hanisch, who had frequently joined her at red carpet events and Instagram PDA sessions in the past.

Still, keeping their wedding a secret was no easy accomplishment, as, according to Us Weekly, celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Judd Apatow, David Spade, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Larry David attended their wedding.

Guess everyone was in on the secret.
