Winner of numerous Emmy, Writers Guild, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild awards, Tina Fey is the most successful woman working in comedy today. Since early childhood, she came to understand through keen observation that comedy is not just about playing it for laughs but also about revealing deeper truths. After training at Second City in Chicago, she pursued her dream of writing and performing for Saturday Night Live. Once there, the successes followed, including her current work on the critically acclaimed comedy 30 Rock. In this new biography, learn how a working-class girl from Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, was able to rise to phenomenal success while never losing her integrity-or sense of humor. Tina Fey: Writer and Actress documents her rise to fame, triumphs, obstacles overcome, and how her talent has influenced other funny women.
