Tina Fey (Elizabeth Stamatina) is a Greek American actress, comedienne, writer, and producer, all in one highly talented, multi award-winning package . She has received seven Emmy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, four Screen Actors Guild Awards, and four Writers Guild of America Awards. Singled out as the performer who had the greatest impact on culture and entertainment in 2008 by the Associated Press, they gave her their AP Entertainer of the Year award.
After graduating from the University of Virginia in 1992, Tina moved to Chicago to take classes at the improvisational comedy group The Second City, where she became a featured player in 1994. Three years later, she became a writer for the sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL). Promoted to the position of head writer in 1999, Tina was added to the cast in the following year.
During her time there, she was co-anchor of the show's Weekend Update segment. After leaving SNL in 2006, she created her own television series called 30 Rock, where she portrays the head writer of a fictional sketch comedy series - a situation comedy loosely based on her experiences at SNL.
