As if I needed another reason to love me some Amy Schumer, she just gave me new one. While recently seeing the big, smash, musical hit “Hamilton” on Broadway, she purchased some drinks at the lobby bar. Her bill was $77, which means she probably bought two glasses of wine, a beer and a bottled water. (Shit’s expensive on Broadway.) When it came time to leave a tip, she thought back to her days as a bartender and waitress in New York City and left a 1298% tip. Yes, that’s right. She gave the bartender $1000 on a $77 check. The tip was split amongst all the bartenders and it undoubtedly made their night.
Amy later Tweeted about it:
@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

This just goes to show you that once you’re a server, you’re always a server. It’s in your blood and if you have ever served for a living, you will never forget what it’s like to do it. It’s sorta like riding a bike except instead of the breeze blowing through your hair as you coast along the sidewalk balancing on two wheels, when you serve, you get grease stains on all your clothes as you swerve through your section balancing a stack of dirty dishes.
Thank you to Amy Schumer for being so generous to those bartenders at the Richard Rodgers Theater.
And just another reminder of how Amy’s past server life affects her comedy, check out this video about nut allergies. You just know it’s based on one of her real life experiences.
So realize this post is super old, but I really the one about the bartender being held responsible for some bat-shit-crazy fucktards murders, clicked another at the bottom, and then this one was at the bottom of the page.
Oh Amy Schumer. I love that fucking bitch. I really do. I already loved the shit out of her and now I love her even more.
I ❤️ you as well BW. After a couple years of FB following and blog reading, I figured all the entertainment you provide me with deserved that I read your book. So I did. And it’s fucking fantastic.
I think you and Amy are my two favorite bitches. That is super high standing for me, being classed with Amy.
Thanks BW for always giving me something to laugh at in this ridiculous industry, especially when it’s the the things that usually make me want to kick myself in the face for fun. Your wording and writing style is impeccable.
And, in case Amy ever by some off chance reads thiis, thanks for.making me laugh at nearly everything you say. And for remembering where you came from. (BW you’re in NYC if you ever get to wait on her pass along the message!!)
So to generalize, thanks for being my favorite bitches and making me laugh and entertaining me. BW, on almost a daily basis.
I don’t follow celebrities and couldn’t tell you anything she’s ever done, but thanks to this, I like her. 🙂
Amy can I wait on you?
That’s real nice of her . Seems like a real nice lady.
Fuck that skank and her cries for gun control. Get real.
The Bitchy Waiter
You know, this post had nothing political about it. It was just about a rich and famous person leaving a big tip. Why you gotta be all rude and shit?
Uhh…she’s a cunt looking for attention that she doesn’t need. Maybe she should drop the political commentary. In case people didn’t realize what she’s all about, glad I could catch them before they start loving her too.
Midge, you suck. And you know when BW comments on your comment that he is pissed. Fuck you.
Haters gonna hate. I for one, fucking hate politics cuz everyone gonna have their panties in a wad over something.
