The star went over and above what most celebs do at the show.

Amy Schumer left behind more than a Hamilton when she went to see Hamilton on Broadway.

The comedian, who saw the show Saturday night, racked up a $77 bill (not hard to do with the price of a drink on Broadway being nearly $20) and left a $1,000 tip for the bartenders.

"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 Vulture.

Schumer and her friends were at the Richard Rodgers, where Hamilton is playing, with a group of friends and her boyfriend Ben Hansich.

“And then @amyschumer comes into your work and does something amazing,” DeJohn wrote on an Instagram photo that showed the $1,000 tip. The pic has since gone viral.

DeJohn, who is also an aspiring actress, said this this isn't 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 recalled.

Abhhhhhh #hamilton #bunk

"We've served a lot of celebrities at Hamilton, and we've received some nice tips," added DeJohn, "but never before had I seen a tip that even came close to this one."

And since half of Hollywood has been to Hamilton, that is saying something about Amy's character.
