Getting tickets to Hamilton on Broadway is a New York feat on par with getting a table at Rao’s, but if you’re Amy Schumer, it’s probably a little bit easier than for us normal folk. But while plenty of celebrities and rich people get special treatment, not many respond to that privilege by treating the theater bar staff to a month’s rent.

And then @amyschumer comes into your work and does something amazing #hamilton #amyschumer

According to Gothamist, that’s exactly what Schumer did when she tipped $1,000 on a $77 tab. The bartender, Madeleine DeJohn, posted a photo of the receipt to Instagram, thanking Schumer for the gratuity.

Gothamist caught up with DeJohn to hear what happened:

Last night, our house manager gave us her order before the show and we filled it. Then at intermission, a member of her party came to the bar with another order and when he handed the receipt to my co-worker, he said, ‘Amy wants to make sure you get this.’ My co-worker looked at it and didn’t know what to say. She showed it to me and I was equally speechless. 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.

DeJohn said that Schumer has been to the show a few times, and that she left an $80 tip on a previous occasion. The comedian, who was a bartender before hitting it big, told Dejohn, “Of course, I’ve been there, I get it, you guys are great.”

DeJohn and her coworkers are all artists or actors, working to finance their creative goals. Schumer just helped them and set an example for other celebrities who might slip up in the tipping department.
