“There are a couple of things I want to impart to ladies who want to be in comedy: One, you don’t have to be weird or be quirky to get your job done. And two, comedy skill is not sexually transmittable. You do not have to sleep with a comedian to learn what you’re doing. Male comedians will not like that advice, but it is the truth.” - Tina Fey
Something I didn’t mention in the chat (go figure I was too shy to actually articulate anything, sometimes my 15 year old self takes over.)
I wanted to acknowledge how fantastic your work has been, and no doubt will continue to be throughout each of your careers.
I am a family medicine doctor (and yes there are doctors out there that like awesome things). Nearly everyday, I see someone distraught with their weight or overwhelmed by their circumstances and wanting someone to just make it all better. I have only a limited amount of time to get people going in the right direction. Once they leave my office, they are bombarded by mainstream media telling them they aren’t good enough.
It’s nice to be able to turn to something that makes your day a little better. Something that reminds you to forget about all the crap out there and have fun. Everyone needs that now and then (or everyday), no matter where you are in life.
You three bring joy to your fans. You are role models in the best way. You show people how awesome it is just being yourself. That is something to respect and admire. You lead by example.
Be true, take care…that’s the greatest gift you can give yourself and others.
