Amy Schumer postponed her performance Saturday night at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore due to illness, according to promoter Live Nation. It has been rescheduled for March 4, and all tickets for the postponed show will be honored on the new date.

Earlier this afternoon, the actress, comedian and Towson University alumna posted a video on Instagram of her father.

"Dad visiting me at [sic] while I'm sick at Denise's," the caption read.

On Tuesday, Schumer postponed three dates this week in Canada until February due to being sick.

"Every night I go onstage I promise it's going to be the best show I've ever done, and I can't make that promise because I feel awful and my voice is gone," Schumer said, filming the selfie as she walked to cast her vote for Hillary Clinton. The "Trainwreck" writer and star spent election night with other high-profile Clinton surrogates like Lady Gaga and Lena Dunham at what they expected to be a Clinton victory party.

The Baltimore concert would have been Schumer's first performance since Clinton's loss to Donald Trump, and many wondered how she would address it on stage. Last month, approximately 200 people walked out of her stand-up show in Tampa, Fla., after she criticized Trump, reported the Tampa Bay Times.

In a statement to Vanity Fair, Schumer said, "I loved the crowd and my show in Tampa last night! I want to thank the 8400 people who stayed. We had a great time! We have always depended on comedians to make us laugh and tell the truth. I am proud to continue that tradition."
