Comedian Amy Schumer recently left a $500 tip while dining on Long Island, according to the New York Post.

While dining at Peter's Clam Bar in Island Park, Schumer struck up a conversation with her server, Ryan. The server mentioned that he was a college student working two jobs to fund his education, a source told the New York Post.  

The bill reportedly came to a total of $49, with Schumer leaving Ryan a $500 tip.  

Schumer, who attended South Side High School in Rockville Centre, worked as a waitress and bartender after college, according to Queens Chronicle.

"I waited tables for a long time, so when a waiter is sweet and does a good job I like to leave a really big tip," Schumer told E! News. "I left a chick $600 on a $100 tab. She was a great bartender in Boston at the Mandarin Oriental. I feel crazy lucky I'm in a position to do that."
