Bossypants by Tina Fey
Tina Fey is a woman you may recognize from Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, or various movies. You might also recognize her as Sarah Palin, vice president would-be hopeful from an election back. Tina Fey is a funny woman, in this book, she tells us some about her life.
Tina grew up in a partially Greek household. Tina felt that at a young age she wasn’t “pretty” like other girls. A scar on her face, inflicted by an attack on the street at a young age, which Tina doesn’t talk about, left her with more problems in the world of trying to grow up. Tina did grow up though. She went to highschool and to college. She found that boys might want to be her friend rather than her boyfriend.
Tina started writing and doing improv. She traveled with an improv group and ultimately ended up on Saturday Night Live. Tina wrote many sketches for SNL and was in The Weekend Update, a usual sketch on the show.
Tina moved on from SNL to write her own show, 30 Rock. She wasn’t sure if people were going to like it or watch it, but ultimately, people did.
During all of this, Tina got married and had a daughter named Alice. She was a mother and wife right along with being hilarious on television.
What I liked
I like Tina Fey. I tend to like women in comedy. Tina’s impressions of Sarah Palin were hilarious. She can see Russia from her house. She is funny to read. You’ll have a good time reading this book. It’s an enjoyable experience.
What I didn’t like
Not much really, I like memoirs and I like Tina Fey. Done and done.
Tina Fey just might make my list of hilarious people I need to be friends with.
Do you think you could do improv?
If you wrote a comedy show, what would it be about?
