This Celebrity Left An Insanely Large Tip For Her Bartenders During A Night Out
Bartending doesn't look like such a bad job if it's in the lobby of Broadway's most popular musical and Amy Schumer tips you an extra $1,000.
According to bartender Madeleine DeJohn, the comedian sent a member of her party out to the bar at the intermission of "Hamilton" on Saturday with a receipt that added a $1,000 tip to her $77 bill. And yes, there are bars in Broadway theaters.
Amy's friend reportedly handed the receipt to one of the bartenders, saying,
Amy wants to make sure you get this.
I did the math for you guys, and that's about a 1,300 percent tip.
Like any sane person, Madeleine Instagrammed the receipt.
The whole bartending staff was very grateful.
When asked about it on Twitter, Amy expressed her gratitude to the staff.
@megbakertv@CBSNewYork lots of love to my fellow bartenders and artists. I'm grateful to them and the cast and crew for another great night — Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) March 20, 2016
She posted her own Instagrams of the show, too.
That is some Angelica Schuyler level of generosity right there, Amy.
Madeleine told Gothamist Amy saw the show before and previously left $80 in the tip jar. Apparently, the comedian told the bartenders she'd been in their place before and she gets it. (She waited tables when she was just starting out in her career.) Best celeb ever or best celeb ever?
I don't know what I love most about this story: that Amy saw "Hamilton" more than once, that she left a $1,000 tip or that she spent $77 at the bar to begin with, meaning she was probably a little bit tipsy at "Hamilton."
Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now.
