How Rich Is Tina Fey?
Actress, comedian, writer and producer Tina Fey got her big break on “Saturday Night Live” as a writer in 1997. But it wasn’t until 1999 when she became the show’s first female head writer, and a year later when she began getting more time in front of the camera on the sketch comedy show, that her career really took off. From 2000 to 2001, Fey played co-anchor on the “Weekend Update” feature. In 2002, she shared an Emmy Award win for outstanding writing for a variety, music or comedy program, Britannica reports.

When the show ended its seven-year run, Fey went on to co-create the Netflix series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
