Comedy’s brainy babe (you have to sign in to read this)
'Saturday Night Live' is crap except for two things - sometimes the music (I like Maroon 5, for example) and, most of the time, the smart (writes her own material), beautiful, anti-Mr Bush Tina Fey. Dennis Miller (now shilling for Mr Bush) and I don't agree on much but I second his remark that the 'Weekend Update' parody newscast with her is perhaps the best ever. (I think the main reason people laughed when the original team did it 20 years ago is more shock than wit - audiences weren't used to hearing words like 'Jane, you ignorant slut' on the air.)

Fun facts: she is half-Greek (mother's family) and her recent wedding was at a Greek Orthodox church.
