Tina Fey is America’s First Lady of comedy. Real name Elizabeth Stamatina Fey (…yup) ‘Tina’ first began stretching her comic legs during the mid-nineties in the Chicago improv group The Second City alongside her future 30 Rock pals Scott Adsit and Jack McBrayer.
Performing in those circles soon put her in front of Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels who hired her as a staff writer in 1997 and within two years she had become head writer – the first female lady person to do so.
She soon began performing in sketches and after losing 30 pounds or so producers showed a lot more interest in putting her on camera. Fickle bunch. Not to mention she’s adorable and totes the spitting image of Sarah Palin. But she already knew that and used it to her advantage on SNL…
In the run up to the 2008 presidential election Tina dressed up as the Alaskan guv/would-be vice president and ripped her credibility to shreds.
A ‘pitch-perfect’ performance in political satire and even hailed ‘hilarious’ by the victim herself, Fey gladly scooped up an Emmy Award for it.
Speaking of Emmys, Tina already had them gushing out of every orifice courtesy of her comedy baby 30 Rock.
Loosely based on her time at SNL, 30 Rock written by and starring Tina Fey as Liz Lemon, show-runner of fictional sketch show The Girlie Show, whipped comedy critics into a frenzy and in 2008 it was nominated for a record 17 Emmys – the most for any comedy, ever.
One to stick by her ideals, she joined the picket lines during the writer’s strike in 2007 – even though contractually obliged to still act in 30 Rock!
This soon-to-be mum of two also somehow finds the time to be a movie star as well.
In 2004 Tina Fey penned and starred in the Lindsay Lohan (before she went ca-razy) comedy Mean Girls. She had no part in Mean Girls 2 for the record…she’d like you to know that.
More recently she voiced Roxanne in Megamind, showed up in Ricky Gervais’The Invention of Lying and took her first major big screen lead role in Date Night with Steve Carell in 2010.
Tina has twice been featured in Time magazine’s top 100 most influential people and in 2010 Tina Fey was finally declared officially funny when she was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour.
She now stands alongside comedy greats like Bill Cosby, Whoopi Goldberg and Steve Martin who’ve all received the honour which recognises ‘those who define contemporary comedy’.
On top of all that she’ll be getting her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2011.
