Tina Fey is arguably the most iconic New York comedian of our generation. Most recently she has been commended for her uncanny portrayal of Sarah Palin and, of course, her multiple-emmy award winning television series, 30 Rock. But Tina's new memior "Bossypants" graciously reminded me, over this spring break, that what Tina Fey does best is write. A self-declaring feminist, Tina is the perfect choice to focus on for this assignment.
Tina started out preforming at Second City in Chicago where she met fellow entertainers such as Amy Pholer and Steve Carrell. Second City is legendary for producing some of the most hilarious and well-known comedians of our time and Fey is no exception. What really put Tina on the map, for 30 Rock and otherwise, was her impersonation of vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
