Tina Fey was recently interviewed by Conan O’Brien for the second season of Conan’s podcast Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend. Tina’s episode was just released today and you can listen to the 50-minute interview below. We have also added a picture of Tina and Conan to the gallery.

Writer, comedian, and actress Tina Fey feels good about being Conan O’Brien’s friend; it tracks.

Tina and Conan sit down to discuss SNL-induced OCD, bringing Mean Girls to Broadway, husband Jeff Richmond’s mysterious recurring Conan role, getting over the “chipple,” and improvising like a writer. Plus, Conan responds to a voicemail about which president he’d like to eat.

Buffalo News: Tina Fey on the legacy of ‘Mean Girls’

Promoting the beginning of the ‘Mean Girls‘ National Tour, Tina Fey, Jeff Richmond, Casey Nicholaw, and Nell Benjamin talked to the Buffalo News, ahead of the first show in Buffalo tomorrow night. Read the full interview below!

There are three tall chairs in this room, and that’s a problem, because there are five people. That’s four Broadway producers and one interviewer. Who’s getting a seat? Who’s crouching in a corner?

Who’s cool? Who’s not?

Who’s in? Who’s out? 

This is like trying to find the right seat in high school cafeteria. Who can you sit with? Where do you belong?

Awkward.

But then Tina Fey steps in. She’s in Buffalo, along with a director, a lyricist and a composer – to whom she also happens to be married – to premiere the national tour of the musical she wrote, “Mean Girls.”

EW: The untold story of Emmy’s 2011 comedy actress ‘pageant’

In a new interview with EW, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Edie Falco, and more of the 2011 Comedy Actress nominees look back on their now-iconic Emmys ‘pageant’ moment. Read the full interview below!

In 2011, Mad Men and Modern Family were the big winners of the 63rd Annual Emmy Awards, but it was the nominees of the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category who truly stole the show.

At the brilliant suggestion of Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler, all of the women in the category — Laura Linney (The Big C), Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope), Tina Fey (30 Rock), and Poehler — assembled on stage in a surprise stunt before the winner was announced. Clearly moved by the display, Don Cheadle, Melissa Leo, and Kate Winslet quickly rose to their feet, leading a standing ovation.

McCarthy won that year, and in the best way possible — surrounded by five of TV’s biggest actresses, hugging and congratulating her like she was a queen. As we cross our fingers and hope to die that Sunday’s telecast on Fox will be jam-packed with seminal moments like this, here’s a look back at the 2011 Emmys and how a clever idea by Poehler made all the women feel like winners.
