Comedian, writer, producer, actress. Born Elizabeth Stamatina Fey on May 18, 1970 in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, to parents Donald and Jeannec Fay. Jeannec Fey worked in a brokerage firm and Donald Fey wrote grants for the University of Pennsylvania. At the age of five, Fey was in her front yard when a stranger approached her and slashed her face with a knife, leaving her with the signature scar she still carries today. But Fey did not allow this incident to define or hinder her. Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Tina recalls a dorky adolescence filled with unplucked eyebrows and perms. In lieu of dating, Fey would have friends over to play party games like Celebrity. This self-proclaimed supernerd went on to study drama at the University of Virginia.
Saturday Night Live:
After graduating from college in 1992, Tina Fey moved to Chicago to pursue a career in comedy. She enrolled in the comedy training ground Second City, a renowned program where many Saturday Night Live (SNL) comedians got their start. In 1995, SNL writers came to Second City looking for new talent and were encouraged by Tina Fey’s aptitude. When SNL producer Lorne Michaels read Fey’s sketch ideas, she was offered a job as an SNL writer. It may be hard for some to imagine Tina Fey prior to stardom and her trademark sexy librarian image, but husband Jeff Richmond remembers dating a Tina who wore “mismatched frumpy clothing” on a heavier, Rubenesque frame. After several years in New York, Fey became the first female head writer in SNL history. However, when critics were apprehensive of casting her because she didn’t have the looks, Fey realized she needed a diet and a makeover.
It was during the show’s 25th season when Fey was able to transform her image and establish a fan base. Fey was cast as a news reporter on the regular Weekend Update sketch with Jimmy Fallon, where she wrote many of the segments’ most popular biting jokes.
