(Newser) – No, Amy Schumer will not become Amy Fischer following the comedian's marriage to chef Chris Fischer. 'Cause, well, she doesn't want to be confused with an attempted-killer-turned-porn-star. This came to light via Instagram, where Schumer's father asked his famous daughter if she would make the switch. "I'm keeping my last name," responds Schumer, a Long Island native, per People. "I'm not Amy Fischer! Do you remember who Amy Fisher is? The Long Island Lolita." She's referring, of course, to this Amy Fisher, the 17-year-old who shot her lover's wife in the face in 1992, before serving seven years in jail for assault. Bonus: Schumer's decision will also avoid possible confusion with an actress by the name of Amy Fischer, according to IMDB. (Read more Amy Schumer stories.)
