Bossypants by Tina Fey

Bossypants

Bossypants is a humorous look into Tina Fey’s life before, during, and after Saturday Night Live. I like Tina’s sense of humor. Much of the writing in the book is self-depreciating. Fey loves her job and her co-workers.

I love “30 Rock” and quotes like this explain why, “…which is to say content should dictate style, which is to say that in TV the writer is king.”
There are a couple chapters dealing with her portrayal of Sarah Palin. Interesting that everything was stacked against this performance- not the least was Fey’s inability to do characters.

Did it seem insane that a presidential candidate would want to appear in a sketch parodying his running mate just days before the election? Sure, but what didn’t seem insane then? A Kenyan Communist Muslim was about to be elected president. Seth wrote a sketch about McCain-Palin buying time on QVC as a last-ditch effort to reach voters.
