Amy Schumer recently left a struggling college student a whopping $500 tip after dining at Peter's Clam Bar on Long Island.

Schumer, star of Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer," left the gratuity on a $49 bill at the iconic eatery after having an "engaging, animated conversation with her server, Ryan," a source told the New York Post's Page Six.

During the conversation, the server reportedly mentioned that he was working two jobs and attending college.

Schumer recently told Vanity Fairthat she used to wait tables herself at Michael Jordan Steakhouse in New York before her big break in show business.

"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! Online on Monday. "I do it all the time. I can't believe it's a news story but hey everybody should tip a lot that job is hard."

"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," she continued.

Schumer, who was born in Manhattan, grew up on Long Island, and graduated from high school in Rockville Center, New York, frequents the bars because it's low key for her, a Pete's spokesman told Newsday.

"She just wanted to do a nice thing," the spokesman said. "The people there respected her privacy and didn't make a thing about her being there."

Schumer's kindness brought a smile to the face of many on social media as well.
