(CNN)Amy Schumer remembers when she struggled before she became a star, and that proved to be lucky for a group of bartenders.

The comedian reportedly left a $1,000 tip on a $77 bill Saturday for the bartenders at the hit Broadway show "Hamilton."

"I was very touched, it was just something so generous and so kind that you don't see every day," Madeleine DeJohn, a bartender at the Richard Rodgers Theater in New York, told the New York Daily News.
    Schumer was in the house taking in a performance with a group that included boyfriend Ben Hanisch.

    DeJohn, an aspiring actress, said it's not the first time Schumer has hooked up the bartenders at the theater.
    The "Trainwreck" star left an $80 tip on a $40 tab the last time she was there, DeJohn said. When the bartender thanked her, Schumer -- who tended bar and served before she made it big -- simply said, "I've been there. I get it," DeJohn told the Daily News.
