Rockville Centre-raised Amy Schumer and her beau Ben Hanisch not only took in a historic Mets game on Sunday but also smooched on the Kiss Cam.
“I have always wanted to be on the kiss cam! My dad and my man!! #letsgomets,” the comedy star, 35, wrote on Instagram alongside a video of her sudden delight at seeing her, Hanisch and father Gordon Schumer on the jumbo screen at CitiField in Flushing. She then gives her dad a kiss on the cheek and turns to Hanisch for a short but possibly comically exaggerated make-out session.
In an earlier Instagram missive, she posted a group photo of herself, Hanisch, her dad, her friend and fellow Long Island comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his wife Jessica, and actors Jonah Hill and Matthew Broderick. “Let’s go @mets thank you jerry and @jessseinfeld #dreamday,” Schumer wrote.
The Mets themselves got into the act, tweeting a photo of Schumer at the game, wearing a team cap and having a beer. “Hi, @amyschumer! #LGM,” the club wrote, using the abbreviation for “Let’s go, Mets!”
Schumer was among a crowd of 35,093 at the regular season’s final home game, as the Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 17-0 for the biggest shutout in Mets history. Another team record was set with four batters hit by pitches
The “Trainwreck” and Emmy-winning “Inside Amy Schumer” star revealed her relationship with Hanisch, founder of the Chicago custom-furniture company The Last Workshop, in a pair of tweets on Jan. 5.
Meanwhile, on Friday, Schumer, Jeff Ross, Rachel Feinstein and Andy Kindler headlined a fundraiser in Washington, D.C., for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Minnesota senator and former “Saturday Night Live” writer-performer Al Franken was emcee of the event that drew more than 500 Clinton supporters, according to Politico.com. Afterward, Schumer performed a scheduled solo show at the capital’s Verizon Center.
