Don't expect to see Amy Schumer at next year's Met Gala.

The 35-year-old comedian blasted the event during an interview with Howard Stern, saying it "felt like a punishment".

"I left earlier than I should have been allowed," she said about this year's event.

"I got to meet Beyonce and she was like, 'Is this your first Met Gala?' And I was like, 'It's my last.' It felt like a punishment. It's not me and I don't like it."

Schumer wore a tangerine-coloured Alexander Wang gown to the Gala, but she told Stern she didn't enjoyed having to get so dressed up.

"We're dressed up like a bunch of fu**ing a**holes," she said.

"I have no interest in fashion. I like the idea of coming up with a way to dress that's more comfortable that looks cool. Other than that, I just don't care."

The comedian, who has a new book called The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, told the radio shock jock that she's an introvert who doesn't really enjoy mingling with famous people at parties.

"It's just so fake," Schumer said.

"It's people doing an impression of having a conversation ... I like talking to people one on one where you can be comfortable and really have a conversation. I don't like the farce."
