Tina Fey has earned her current place as one of the world’s leading comediennes. Respected for her smart and humorous writing, satirical character impersonations and impeccable comedic timing. For a long time in her career, she was known merely as a talented comedy writer. However, that eventually grew into occasional short appearances on Saturday Night Live, which led into a prominent and permanent lead role on SNL’s comedic cast for several years.
Following her success in SNL, Tina Fey became a break out movie star when she wrote and appeared in the hit blockbuster movie “Mean Girls.” Starring the then-successful young movie starlet Lindsay Lohan, Mean Girls proved to be a smart, funny and entertaining movie that was hailed by critics and enjoyed by movie goers of all demographics – young and old, male and female. Mean Girls cemented Tina Fey’s role in the entertainment industry as a multi-talented and profitable force that deserved high praise.
Through her success in sketch comedy television and Mean Girls, Tina Fey was able to launch herself into even greater success, with a hit show on NBC, 30 Rock, more successful movies like “Baby Mama” and a New York Times best-selling memoir. Though not her first or only hit by any means, Mean Girls certainly helped catapult Tina Fey from television success into Hollywood super stardom.
