Why’s Amy Schumer so cool? Hear her humble responses to Howard Stern’s questions about her incredible year

There are a million reasons why we’re obsessed with Amy Schumer: Her knack for cleverly pushing buttons and boundaries in her writing. Her killer comedic timing. Her obsession with falling in public.

Today on The Howard Stern Show, Schumer gave us another one: She’s totally humble about her success.

Trainwreck hits theaters July 17, and anyone who likes to laugh is currently counting down the days for her first stint on the big screen. Stern asked Schumer if she is worried about her first film being a box office hit. While Schumer has enjoyed the ride making Trainwreck, she showed some love to her comedy roots – Howard included!

“The only reason this movie got made is because of you putting me on this show. Howard, thank you,” Schumer said. “I feel no pressure … I feel like we all just treat the movie business like making movies is the ultimate. And people are like, ‘Aren’t you so glad you don’t have to do your dirty, disgusting stand-up and television anymore?’ … I love my TV show, and I love doing stand-up!”

Schumer also joked about opening for Madonna. Chris Rock asked Schumer (at the Queen of Pop’s request, no less), and her reaction went a little something like this:

“I don’t think that I’ll do a good job,” Schumer said. “They’re not here for me. They are jacked up, psyched to see Madonna – like I would be … I’m planning on just taking one to the chin every night.”

Schumer also turned down replacing fellow comedy game changer Jon Stewart on The Daily Show (no big deal).

“Them asking me made me cry. That means so much to me, that they believed in me like that,” Schumer said. “[Jon Stewart and I] had a piece of pizza and talked about the possibility of me hosting … I just pictured all the fittings, like all the blazers I would have to wear and was like ‘I don’t want to do that.’… Trevor [Noah] will be so much better at it than I could have ever been.”

And of course, Schumer addressed being one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of 2015.

“It’s like these Ebola fighters and people who have made real change,” Schumer said. “And then it’s like – me and Bradley Cooper.”

While at the SiriusXM studios, Schumer also stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio and dished about what it would take to make her the next Bachelorette after rumors began swirling that she was in talks to do it.
