If Tina Fey wrote it, you know it's going to be funny. She revived "Saturday Night Live" when she took over as head writer, created instant-cult-fave comedy "Mean Girls" from a self-help book, and killed on "Weekend Update" (with one hilarious recurring bit involving Gay Hitler).
Now, she's the creator/executive producer/star -- and, yes, writer -- of "30 Rock," one of the funniest sitcoms in years.And she doesn't just look good on paper: Fey delivers in person. Her best work combines the scathing with the silly -- the thinking person's screwball. In a recent "30 Rock" episode, Fey's character, Liz, is fixed up with Thomas by her boss (played by Alex Baldwin).
Turns out Thomas is a lesbian named Gretchen Thomas, and her boss assumed Liz was gay because of her shoes. But that's not even the punchline: Liz developed a "straight crush" on Gretchen and desperately wanted to hang out with her, but Gretchen wasn't into straight girls, so Liz got "dumped."
Now, Tina Fey talks to Jenny Stewart about gay jokes, Rush Limbaugh, and why she's so not into Angelina Jolie. Oh -- she also plays "Who Would You Rather Sleep With?" and the results are interesting...
