Who Is Ben Hanisch, Amy Schumer’s New Boyfriend?
Amy Schumer appears to have found love with Ben Hanisch, the new man in her life who’s been cropping up on her Instagram page.
Who Is Ben Hanisch?
Hanisch seemed to confirm the relationship with Schumer on Instagram on New Year’s Eve, when he posted a picture with the comedian on Instagram, and wrote, “Sometimes in life you get extremely lucky, and the smartest, funniest, most beautiful woman comes along when you least expect it. Here’s to what adventures 2016 brings!”
Earlier this week, Schumer seemed to confirm the buzz about the new relationship on Twitter. “Fam and man at the whitehizzy,” she captioned a pair of pictures from her day at the White House, where she attended President Barack Obama‘s press conference on gun control.

Hanisch also posted a photo from the event, captioning it,” So proud of this babe!! #StopGunViolence.”
Unlike Schumer, Hanisch makes his living outside of the entertainment industry, working as a custom furniture maker. Hanisch, who takes reclaimed pieces of furniture and makes them into something new and modern, has bigger plans for the future. “My dream, dream, dream job is a boutique hotel where every room is different,” he told Five O’Clock magazine last year.
The artsy Chicagoan is a “super nice, chill guy,” a source told E! News, adding, “He’s kind of a hipster. I would call him hipster-esque.”
As for those rumors that Hanisch met Schumer on dating app Bumble, they’ve been shut down by the Trainwreck star.
Please let the record show I have never in my life been on bumble.
