The 35-year-old "Snatched" star was out running in Chicago recently when she dipped into a Six Corners Mattress Firm store on an emergency bathroom break.

When store employee Sagine Lazarre allowed the funny lady to use the store's restroom, the generous comedian repaid the favor by buying Lazarre a $2,000 mattress! A rep for Schumer confirmed the story to TODAY.

Lazarre — who at first didn't recognize Schumer —told WGN News on Wednesday, "It’s amazing, mind blowing. I’m still shocked."

Lazarre said the mattress came at the perfect time since she and her daughter recently moved into a new apartment.
