quote:

Tina Fey has been extremely respectful of Palin

When was comedy suppose to be respectful?

quote:

Fey has not over produced her work of Palin. I only count a few episodes on SNL and then a few times when asked on different shows while she was being interviewed

This is news to me. Of course you have to watch SNL to know. Seems like a common skit from the plethora of YouTube videos.

quote:

Tina Fey would go on tour with her impersonation if she wanted and make some major money

Count me out of financing this junk tour. One impression, ok, that will be $150 for 2 jokes. No thanks, I'm all good.

"You can fool everyone some of the time, but you can fool some people all the time." I'd look into this TenTex...

However, I try to never let the politics invade my entertainment.


I'll watch anything if it's funny. But if it gets too one sided, politically, it pisses me off and i change the channel. And, it's always jabs at the right. Which if they want to do it, that's fine, but the material that the left has to offer, is comedy gold, yet no one picks it up. Occasionally Stewart will use something from the left, but he will focus more on the right. That's why i quit watching him. I used to find him funny. Even during the Bush years i watched him, and he did a decent job. But once Barack came into office, it was pretty much hands off the left. I know he's done some skits about Obama and the left, but i'd say the balance is somewhere around 80/20. 80% jokes on the right, 20% jokes on the left.

I mean, how do you pass-up making fun of Feinstein, Pelosi, Sheila Jackson Lee, Hank Johnson, Charlie Reingel, and the whole Bloomberg soda ban shite.

All of you comedy and acting critics need to lighten up. She was asked to do the bit on a program "The Actors Studio" where she was being interviewed. She's been long gone from SNL, just in case this is news. Actually I think she gets Palin's essence of stating the inane as though it is a revelation that is funny. She is a brilliant writer.

My point isn't that she should stop doing the palin skit. I'm just saying that it's a little played out, and it's not funny anymore. Regardless of your thoughts on Palin or Fey, it's pretty easy to see that it's overplayed.

And i find it asinine that TenTex thinks Fey could go around the country doing the Palin impersonation and "make bank".

I would say that about any 1 trick pony impersonator going around the country, not just Fey.

Palin's run for the V.P. is one of the best things to happen to not only Fey, but Julianne Moore and Katie Couric too. How many awards did the three of them win at Palin's expense?

And Joe Biden makes her look like Einstein. Biden lays so much good material out there for comedians. They should run with it.

ACBug, You obviously don't find Fey doing Palin as funny. That's okay. Other people do. It's okay.

Oh, and let me expand on Fey touring the country and making big bucks. I'm not into producing comedy tours but I would go see a team of comedians including Fey doing a scripted out mockery of national politicians. Throw in a few Religious leaders and it would be hilarious. Sorry if you don't enjoy comedy of politicians and religious leaders.

Must be miserable to choose art by the politics of the artist as some seem to on this board. I would have missed out on Stage Coach, The Searches and Braveheart, just to name a few.

Pffffft.....I'd NEVER be able to watch any "futuristic, space sci-fi" movies. The black dude ALWAYS gets killed in the first 15 minutes of those shows!!!

The problem arises when the "artist" chooses material based purely on politics. I doubt a true artist would bypass the best material due to PC or political persuasion. Is that still art or is it something else? I say it's cowardice and not art.

This thread is about Tina Fey. Surely, you do not think that Palin (or, even politics in general) is her single basis of material.


That woman is incredibly successful.

Of course it's not, but if you are going to do political comedy why not use all material available? Is she unable to attempt liberal comedy? I would imagine this board would need 5-10 minutes to come up with plenty of solid ideas to mock Liberal politicians.

So is McDonald's, Walmart, most chain restaurants, this is no way to judge quality.

Biden: Gabby Giffords 'Was Shot and Mortally Wounded'

"Gabby Giffords, my good friend, was shot and mortally wounded," Biden claimed.

Biden made the comment as he tried to gin up support for gun control.

Oh really. Fey has been quoted how much she hates Palin and wouldn't even speak to her off stage when Palin was on SNL. I never thought her Palin impersonation was funny and I definitely am not Palin fan.
