Star Sighting :Tina Fey & Amy Poehler

Is it just me or is everyone else ecstatic about the upcoming 70th Annual Golden Globes in which Tina Fey and Amy Pohler will be co-hosting!? Man alive, these two ladies are enormously talented and hilarious and beautiful to boot. It’ll no doubt be a show to remember. I mean the wardrobe changes alone! I’m salivating at the mouth over the potential couture dresses as we speak. And if the just released promo for the awards is any indication of what hilarity is sure to ensue, we’re all in for a treat.

Did you know, both are Second City and SNL alums? The world’s premier comedy club/theatre/school of improv has boasted some of the biggest comedic heavy hitters out there— John Candy, John Belushi, Chris Farley, Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert to name a few. You’ll notice that’s a heck of a lot of masculine names. No kidding. The comedic world has largely been male driven for decades but make no mistake, women have made their mark in a big big way. Seriously, we’re funny! If you sat in my living room on a Saturday night with me and some of my best girl friends you wouldn’t know what hit you. It’s comedy central.

Comedic actresses like Jane Curtin and Gilda Radner (both also SNL alums) paved the way for Fey and Poehler and many other female comedians. Another fact? This will be the first time ever that the Globes are hosted by a woman, and two women at that! In my opinion, we now live in a world where women are beginning to slowly dominate this profession. With triple threats (comedic actress, writer, producer) like Fey, Poehler and more recently Mindy Kaling the world is becoming a much funnier, accepting and open place. To quote Alicia Keys, these “girls are on fire,” and I’m happy to follow their smoke signals.

On a side note, I’m currently reading Tina Fey’s Bossypants book. I know I’m a little late to game on that one but might I just say it’s hilarious and I can barely put it down between reading sessions. I highly recommend you pick yourself up a copy and bask in the comedic genius that is Tina Fey.
