We Love Why Amy Schumer Gave This Man a ‘Disappointing’ Lap Dance

Comedian Amy Schumer gave a terribly disappointing lap dance for the best reason: to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

While promoting Schumer’s new rom-com “Trainwreck,” Universal and the fundraising site CrowdRise held a raffle where people could enter by making donations. The grand prize included two tickets to the film’s New York City red carpet premiere, the chance to have actor and “Trainwreck” co-star Bill Hader serve you popcorn in your seat and a “disappointing” lap dance from Schumer.

Multiple sclerosis is a cause close to the comedian’s heart. Schumer’s father was diagnosed with it when the actress was 12, according to an interview Schumer did with CBS News. The diagnosis and her father’s life with the disease has affected Schumer’s outlook and career, even inspiring a lot of the plot of her new movie.

I seek laughter all the time,” Schumer told CBS. “I think that’s something that also comes with having a sick parent is you don’t know what’s going to happen, and so I’ll be like, ‘I’m psyched my legs still work and I want to, like, experience all I can and make as many memories as I can.”

The grand prize winner and lap dance recipient, Adam Fein, had this to say about the experience on his blog: “It was as great as you might imagine and not at all disappointing.”

Fein enjoyed himself so much, in fact that he’s decided to raise even more money for the cause and match the donations up to the first $5,000.

When the Doctor Commented on the BMI of My Son With Autism

Last week, we had my 11-year old son Jack’s check-up, and my stomach sank when the doctor quietly pointed out his higher-than-average body mass index (BMI) on his chart. You wouldn’t know this to look at him; he’s pretty tall for his age with the longest, skinniest legs in the world. But he’s solid, and [...]
