A-Z of Tina Fey
↳ A: Amy Poehler.
“In the early ’90s in Chicago, only two things were clear. We wanted to write and perform comedy, and we knew we would look better in our forties than we did in our twenties.” -Amy Poehler
“Years ago, when I was young and vibrant, I flashed [Chris Parnell] my boobs on my birthday. It was right before I started SNL, and I was drinking so much tequila that I flashed him my boobs at a party at my house. The next day he called me, and he left this message: ‘Hello, Maya, this is Chris Parnell. I want to say thank you very much for showing me your boobs last night. I appreciate it.’ It’s probably my favorite message I’ve ever received. It was so fucking funny.”
Happy Birthday Maya Rudolph!
July 27th, 1972
“I was so happy. Weirdly, I remember thinking, ‘My friend is here! My friend is here!’ Even though things had been going great for me at the show, with Amy there, I felt less alone.” | Tina Fey on Amy Poehler joining SNL
INTERVIEWER: Give me one of your purely satisfying mean moments.
TINA FEY: The first thing that comes to mind is a more recent one, when Amy Poehler and I were in the airport last week in Toronto and we were getting hassled by this middle-aged businessman who was doing that thing that middle-aged businessmen do, being rude. And then Amy, in the middle of the airport, screamed, “Fuck you, you fuckin’ dick, you fuckin’ rich asshole.” And it was so satisfying—it was immediate release. She would probably be mortified that I told you. (x)
