Happy birthday, Tina Fey! The hilarious writer and actress turns 47 today, and to celebrate, we’re reliving nine times that she had us laughing out loud. The comedian started her career at Saturday Night Live before writing the iconic screenplay for the 2004 hit, Mean Girls. Moving on to write and star in the long-lasting comedy 30 Rock and the Netflix series, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Fey has written some of TV’s funniest comedies.
Her career continues to be on the rise in Hollywood. In 2015, she starred in the hit Sisters with her friend Amy Poehler, and portrayed a journalist covering the war in Afghanistan in this year’s Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. But perhaps her funniest moments have come when she’s turned the tables on Hollywood by hosting and roasting at the Golden Globes with Poehler as one incredible comedy duo.
In honor of her birthday, celebrate by taking a look back at some of her funniest moments.
