Background: Fey is an American actress, comedian, writer, and producer who was born near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in Upper Darby. She attended the University of Virginia where she studied playwriting and acting, graduating in 1992 with a degree in drama. She moved to Chicago and took night classes at the improvisational comedy troupe Second City and joined the cast in 1994.

Filmography: While performing with Second City, Fey submitted several scripts to NBC for the long-running variety series "Saturday Night Live." She was hired by executive producer Lorne Michaels as a writer in 1997. Two years later she became the show's first female head writer, and in 2000 became the co-anchor of "Weekend Update" with Jimmy Fallon. She continued with the show as a performer and head writer through the 2005-2006 season, winning her first Emmy Award for writing SNL in 2002. With Michaels as a producer, she developed the comedy series "30 Rock" for NBC and was also the lead actress of the show in the role of Liz Lemon, a writer and producer of a fictional variety show on the same network. The show has won the Emmy for Best Comedy Series three times, and Fey has won as Best Comedy Actress once. She also returned as a guest host for SNL in 2009 and won an additional Emmy.
