Amy Schumer may be the patron saint of waiters. The comedian and star of “Inside Amy Schumer” was dining at Peter’s Clam Bar in Long Island, N.Y., when she left her waiter a giant tip, according to Page Six.
Schumer got to talking to her waiter during dinner — which included soup and a couple appetizers, the Huffington Post reports. During their chat, the waiter revealed he was a college student working two different jobs to support himself.
Evidently, the story must have resonated with Schumer. When her $49 check came, the comedian left an extra $500, which is a tip of more than 1000 percent. Schumer, a former waitress herself, clearly knows just how valuable those tips can be.
