Words of Wisdom: Tina Fey

From Bossypants, under “My Bossypants Managerial Techniques”:

I’ll admit that as a female producer I have a tacit “no hot-heads” policy. For years, to be considered a genius at comedy, people had to be “dangerous” and “unpredictable.” I have met some very dangerous, erratic, funny people over the years, people I admire, but I don’t want to work with them every day. Go do your own show, tough guys, and I will gladly watch it from the safety of my home. I hire the most talented of the people who are the least likely to throw a  punch in the workplace. If this is contributing to the Demasculinization of America, I say hold a telethon and let me know how it goes. I don’t ever want to get punched in the face over a joke – or even screamed at. 

Love, Stella
