Amy Schumer Leaves a 1000% Tip at Long Island Restaurant

Amy Schumer

We’ve always wanted to eat dinner with Amy Schumer.

Now, we want to give her dinner.

Amy Schumer tipped her waiter $500 after a $49 meal at Peter’s Clam Bar in Long Island, New York, according to the  New York Post. That’s roughly 50 times more than your average 20% tip.

A source at the restaurant told the Post that the Inside Amy Schumer star got involved in an “engaging, animated conversation” with her server Ryan after he revealed to Schumer he was a student working two jobs to pay for college.

Maybe she was in a good mood because she’d just eaten the crab cakes or the paella or pretty much anything at the beloved Long Island restaurant.

I LOVE AMY on

It was NOT a tip but more like charity. She was helping out a poor hard working college student. I am sure many rich and famous people remember their first few jobs and how awful they were. Chelsea Handler was a waitress and she always over tips here servers. Good for Amy Schumer to “pay it back” Good KARMA will come her way.

I once tipped 100% on a $1.25 cup of coffee.

So not only is she really funny, but she also has a big heart. Love her.

I think it’s sweet that people who can afford to tip like this can. I also don’t think they do it to get a story published about them. This is a non story about someone doing something really nice for someone else.

We’ll likely be reading in a few short years that she’s broke. She’s not that funny, she really should save her money…..

Giving such a huge tip shows that Amy has a good heart. I doubt she did it for publicity, but rather to help a struggling student.

LOL which publicist made sure this story ended up in People?

Good karma came her way the moment she left the tip and how it will make her feel.

Tip for Amy: Chuck Schumer is funnier. Get out of the business honey, your act stinks. The perfume didn’t help.

It simply projects the idea of being able to provide service without restrictions in terms of location.
