NEW YORK, March 15 (UPI) -- Amy Schumer will embark on a new, standup comedy tour in April.

The 34-year-old actress and comedian announced the news on her website and social media Monday.

"Just announced my new spring tour dates!! Get your tickets this Friday @10AM! Don't miss it: amyschumer.com/tour," the star tweeted.

Schumer will kick off the tour April 7 in Reading, Pa., and bring the venture to a close June 23 in New York. She will release her new book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, on Aug. 16.

"[I realized] about five or six years [into standup I wanted to provide] a voice for women that was palatable for men also," the actress told GQ in July. "An honest, unapologetic human voice."
