Three cheers for Tina Fey! Today is her birthday and we think that’s a cause for celebration, don’t you?
Beginning in the late ’90s, circa 1997 to be exact, Fey has been making us laugh as a writer on Saturday Night Live and then a star on the sketch comedy show and our world hasn’t been the same since…thank goodness.
After SNL, the fierce female took comedy to the next level with her own series, 30 Rock, and films like Mean Girls, Baby Mama, Sisters and more as an actress, writer and producer. Oh, and then there was Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
As we celebrate the Pennsylvania native turning 49 years old, we’ve decided to give it up for the girls—Fey and Poehler that is!
The funny gals have formed one of Hollywood’s favorite friendships and we love it so much that we will use any excuse to talk about it.
Fey and Poehler have acted alongside one another, appeared in each other’s projects, been through pregnancies together and through it all they’ve laughed with each other and made life much more enjoyable.
Now that we’re talking about Fey and her incredible career, we might as well talk about her sweet friendship with Poehler, because it’s one of the good ones. See their cutest BFF moments in photos below!

SAG Awards Sweethearts
At the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, the radiant friends presented Carol Burnett with the Life Achievement Award. During their speech, the famous comedians praised the comic legend for The Carol Burnett Show, saying, “Besides seeing the comedy every week, and how funny she was, and how beautiful she looked, it was important for us to see that Carol was also the boss. It was her show. And that implanted in our brains, and it made us dream of a life where we could get paid to make comedy with our friends, but also be their boss.”
Merry Christmas Cuties
All we want for Christmas is a BFF mash-up song as iconic as Fey and Poehler’s! The two queens of comedy took turns singing sections of their original song in 2015, on the sketch show where they got their start AKA Saturday Night Live, and the end result was just as funny as you’d imagine.
“Dope Squad” Gang
The duo poked some fun at Taylor Swift‘s “Bad Blood” music video and girl squad with their SNL parody, “Dope Squad” in 2015. Rather than featuring Swift’s crew of young, A-list celebs, Fey and Poehler’s hilarious performance honored everyday women, from gynecologists to nannies.
Talk Show Twins
In December 2015, the two comedians jokingly discussed their relationship status as each other’s working wife while catching up with their mutual friend Seth Meyers on his talk show, Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly for its holiday issue in 2015, the friends of over 20 years promoted their movie Sisters, leading up to its winter release.
Golden Globes Champagne Stars
The entertaining co-hosts raised a glass during the opening ceremony of the 71st Golden Globe Awards in 2014 and they had us laughing all night long. Poehler started off the show with a quick jab at Matt Damon, joking, “In any other night in any other room you would be a big deal. But tonight, and don’t take this the wrong way, you’re basically a garbage person.”
Golden (Globes) Toast
Bringing drinks to the stage, the co-hosts joked at the 2013 award show, “Well, the show has really taken a turn. Time to start drinking.”

Jokes on You
Funniest hosts ever? We sure think so! Plus, they had hilarious zingers like this one to make sure fans laughed throughout their 2013 Golden Globes show saying, “The Hunger Games was one of the biggest films of the year, and also what I call the six weeks it took me to get into this dress!”
Goddesses Wear Sneakers
Of course the funny ladies aren’t afraid to rock Converse sneakers in this 2013 Golden Globes promo! We wouldn’t expect anything less from the super cool pals.

Where It All Began
