Jonathan Ames threw an impromptu wake for "Bored to Death" after his show was canceled. And that is why Jonathan Ames had to pay a $1,600 bar tab at the Brooklyn Inn.

The writer treated fans and crew of his show to drinks, the New York Post reported, but that quickly added up. That included a tweet to the general public, a move that may have backfired.

"The turnout surprised Ames," the Post said.

"I was not expecting this. I’m gonna lose a lot of money."

The writer is last spotted heading out, at 1:30 a.m., looking for a cash machine.
