Comedic powerhouse Amy Schumer just gave fans another reason to adore her. During a Saturday performance of Hamilton in New York City, the actress/comedian left a $1,000 tip for the bar staff, all six of whom are aspiring actors. Schumer, who worked as a server before her meteoric rise to fame, tacked on the hefty tip to a comparatively meager $77 bill.

"I'd like to think if I become that successful, that I can do the same," Madeline DeJohn, a member of the bar staff, told the New York Daily News. "She's been one of us. She reminded me that there's still a lot of good in the world." And according to the outlet, when DeJohn thanked Schumer for her generosity, the actress replied, "I've been there, I get it."
