Amy Schumer comforts ill father with visits from celebs

HER AMY IS TRUE

Comedian Amy Schumer is pulling out all the stops to help her father Gordon in his battle with M.S. Last week, that meant bringing her “Snatched” co-star Goldie Hawn for a visit.

According to a guest at the assisted living facility in Tribeca where Amy’s dad lives, he recently became depressed after having problems in one of his arms.

That’s when Hawn and Schumer came by.

“She cares about him so much that she visits him regularly,” we’re told.

Schumer has spoken publicly about her father’s illness and brought Colin Quinn to meet him when they were filming “Trainwreck.”

We’re told that Gordon proudly tells his friends at the facility, “You know my daughter Amy Schumer, she does pretty good for herself.”

Schumer chimed on Instagram last week to quiet controversy around her not getting paid as much as her co-stars Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle on a recent Netflix special.

“They are legends and 2 of the greatest comics of all time,” she reasoned.

HUERTA’S SO GOOD

Dolores Huerta, the activist and community advocate who is the subject of the PBS documentary “Dolores,” has her own VIP guardian angel – Carlos Santana.

“It’s a blessing,” she told us at her premiere at the Metrograph.

“It’s like (having) an angel that really cares about you and he’s willing to put his resources out there.”

The admiration is mutual.

“The thing I learned from Dolores is we’re here to create miracles and blessings,” Santana said.
