It seems Amy Schumer is as free with her newfound fortune as she is with her zingy one liners. The comic left a generous $1,000 tip on a bar bill of just $77, as she enjoyed a post-theater tipple with pals in New York on Saturday night.
The thrilled bartenders took to Twitter to share their thanks, broadcasting Schumer’s good deed as they did so. More after the cut…
Madeleine DeJohn wrote ‘And then Amy Schumer comes into your work and does something amazing!’
She shared an image of the tip, tagging it ‘Hamilton’ and ‘Amy Schumer’. DeJohn told the New York Daily News: ‘I was very touched, it was just something so generous and so kind that you don’t see every day.’
When DeJohn thanked Schumer for the tip, the Trainwreck actress told her, ‘I’ve been there, I get it,’ DeJohn recalled.
Another image by Sara Laursen showed the happy staff celebrating their good fortune, and was captioned: ‘From the bartenders Hamilton Musical thank you Amy Schumer for making our night!’
DeJohn tagged her colleagues, who also shared their delight, at receiving way above the traditional dollar a drink tip. The six employees working that night, who are all aspiring actors, split the tip between them.
