NEW YORK (JTA) — The next time Amy Schumer shows up at a restaurant, the wait staff will likely be vying for a chance serve her, and not just in  hopes for an autograph or selfie with the actress-comedian.

Schumer, who is Jewish (and the cousin of New York Sen. Charles Schumer), may have set a record for generous tipping on Saturday night when she left a $1,000 gratuity on a $70 bill.

According to several media outlets, the “Trainwreck” star, who worked as a bartender and waitress before establishing herself in acting, gave the tip (via credit card) to the bartenders who served her at Manhattan’s Richard Rodgers’ Theatre, where she was seeing Broadway hit “Hamilton.”

One of the bartenders (six, all aspiring actors, are sharing the tip) told The Daily News that when she thanked Schumer for her generosity, Schumer said, “I’ve been there, I get it.”
