Amy Schumer $1000 tip

Making a living serving drinks in NYC is tough. Many pray they’ll earn just enough in tips to help them survive in the big city for another month. So imagine the looks on the faces of the bartenders working at Hamilton: An American Musical when they received this hefty tip from a well-known New Yorker on a $77 check.

And who was this generous theatre goer that made the Hamilton staff’s night? None other than Trainwreck star Amy Schumer!

Bartender Madeline John, who personally received the impressive tip, told NY Daily News: “We’ve served a lot of celebrities at Hamilton and we’ve received some nice tips but never before had I seen a tip that even came close to this one.”

John went on to say this wasn’t the first time Amy had been so generous, having previously left $80 and saying she understood what is was like working in a bar.

Good for you, Amy!
