Amy Schumer Tipped The Bartenders At Hamilton$1,000 Because She Gets It

This isn’t the first time she’s pulled a baller move like this. In the summer of 2015, Schumer left a $500 tip on a $49 bill at a restaurant in Long Island. She sympathized with the server who was working two jobs while in school, since Schumer has been there. Before she was constantly in your news feed, she was constantly refilling waters too.

This was Schumer’s second visit to see Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical Hamilton within the past 5 months. President Obama has also seen the musical twice, and he’s a busy guy. It must be good. People are losing their minds over it. Soul Cycle even offers Hamilton themed cycle classes, which is a bit much if you ask me.

Unlike most of the celebrities that come through to see the musical that has gotten the most mainstream attention in years, Schumer left a super-duper generous tip for the bartending staff. Madeline DeJohn, one of the bartenders working that evening, shared a photo of the tip on Instagram which went viral for obvious reasons.
