23. Tina Fey
Tina was a receptionist at a YMCA in Evanston, Illinois. She took the job because she needed a way to pay for her classes at Second City, which was known for their improv in Chicago.
The job started at 5:30 in the morning and her shift ended at 2 in the afternoon. It was perfect timing for her night class schedule, and the slew of characters that she must’ve dealt with that early in the morning at the Y was probably great material for her eventual comedy career.
