Go behind the scenes with, listen to and meet the cast of “Trainwreck” on the red carpet

This holiday weekend proves the perfect time to catch up with the cast of this summer’s hit comedy movie, Trainwreck — they’re taking over SiriusXM, providing backstage videos from their recent stand-up comedy tour for regional charities, and offering you the chance to win a trip to attend the official World Premiere of the movie this month.


The Trainwreck Takeover on Comedy Central Radio will showcase comedy from Schumer, Colin Quinn, Mike Birbiglia, Dave Attell, and other comedians from Trainwreck, as well as feature a special edition of SiriusXM’s “Town Hall” series. moderated by director Judd Apatow. It’ll air on SiriusXM channel 95, starting at 7 a.m. EDT July 4, through the following day. You also can listen to it via the SiriusXM App on smartphones and tablets, or online at siriusxm.com.


Through July 6, you can enter a contest through CrowdRise to win Universal’s TrainWreck Premiere Experience in New York City later this month.

A $10 donation earns you one entry for the grand prize; $25 earns 3 entries and a digital thank you Apatow; $50 = 7 entries, the digital thanks from Apatow plus a shout out on Twitter from Amy Schumer. Schumer also has promised a “disappointing lap dance” for the grand-prize winner, since your contest donations benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. Schumer’s father lives with MS. If you win, your VIP experience includes two tickets to the NYC movie premiere July 14 — plus round-trip airfare, two nights in four-star hotel, a chance to walk the red carpet and take photos with the cast. Co-star Bill Hader will hand-deliver you popcorn with truffle salt as you watch the film too.


In addition to touring America last month to raise awareness not only for their movie but also for local charities (which benefited from the ticket revenues), the gang who made Trainwreck also made a series of backstage and behind-the-scenes videos. Enjoy!
