Tina Fey is a brilliant writer and performer. She started writing funny jokes and creating characters when she was in her early teens. By High School she knew comedy was her future. “I started wanting to be a performer at first. Soon I found that I liked writing and performing, and that became my path. Writing is great because you can plan out your jokes. But I knew I needed to be spontaneous as well. So I went to Second City, took classes and then became one of their cast members.”

Tina went on to become the first female head writer for Saturday Night Live. Then she starred in the TV show “30 Rock”. She wrote and starred in the movie “Mean Girls”, later turning that into a hit Broadway musical.
