(Newser) – Amy Schumer took in a Broadway play and bought a few drinks Saturday night—and she left an ample tip to thank the bartenders for a fun night out. The comedian placed a $1,000 gratuity on top of her $77 bar bill at a showing of Hamilton, leaving the wait staff "touched" at Schumer's generosity, one of the bartenders tells the New York Daily News. Madeleine DeJohn adds that the last time Schumer showed up there, she left an $80 tip on a $40 tab. Not even other high-profile guests such as Jay Z or Michelle Obama have tipped as well as Schumer, says DeJohn, who posted a pic on Instagram of the receipt with Schumer's big tip.

"I'd like to think if I become that successful, that I can do the same," DeJohn notes. "She’s been one of us. She reminded me that there's still a lot of good in the world." (The Daily News points out Schumer used to bartend and wait tables in the Big Apple before hitting it big.) The six bartenders working that night, who will divvy up the tip among themselves, posted a message to Schumer on Twitter, thanking her for "making our night." Schumer noted in her own tweet: "lots of love to my fellow bartenders and artists. I'm grateful to them and the cast and crew for another great night." (Schumer is also a fierce gun-control advocate.)
