SNL Tina Fey then Gov. Palin

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler spoofs real Gov Palin interview with Katie Couric
Katerina's insight:

Tina Fey impersonates Sarah Palin in an interview with Amy Poehler (as Katie Couric) on SNL. Fey parodies Palin's round-a-bout way of answering questions and tendency to get lost in her answers. The video then compares the skit to a real interview between Palin and Couric, showing the similarities in Palin and Fey's impersonation.

 

In Bossypants, Fey talks about how she got the role of spoofing Sarah Palin and the drama that happened during the few months that she was acting as Palin.

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream th...
Katerina's insight:

Bossypants is not only the autobiography of comedian and actress, Tina Fey, but also includes numerous anecdotes from her life, insight and career advice. It begins with how she became interested in acting and comedy and follows her life including joining SNL and eventually creating 30 Rock. She writes about the ups and downs of achieving her dream and being famous, navigating politics and the press and being a working mother. One central themes in Bossypants is femenism in the work place. Fey gives her opinions and observations about how working women are treated. In particular, Fey notes that after a certain age, women in comedy are regared as "crazy" while the men are not given the same label. Throughout the novel, Fey is open and honest about her life while remaining humorous.

 

I really enjoyed Bossypants. It was funny and witty with just the right amount of heart. She really opened up about her life, telling not only the good stuff but the bad as well, and she wasn't afraid to call herself when needed. I really enjoyed getting a deeper understanding about how tv shows work and how Fey worked her way to her dream job. Thoughout the book, she is hilarous and insightful, providing a very unique way to get her points across.
