NEW YORK (AP) — A visit to Hawaii for most people is relaxing and fun€” but not for Amy Schumer.

The comedian says she was hospitalized this summer with bronchitis while shooting a film with Goldie Hawn in Hawaii.

As a guest Monday night on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Schumer said she had difficulty speaking, was bedridden and coughed so much that she fractured some ribs.

“Hawaii it didn’t totally agree with me,” Schumer joked.

The comedian, who is publicizing her book “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo,” is taking a break from her sketch-comedy series “Inside Amy Schumer” so she can tour and focus on writing.
