Over recent years the media has been buzzing about the lovely and talented Emma Thompson, as she graces red carpets and interviews alike with her heart on her sleeve and a wit that won’t quit.

The hilarious duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is back with their new comedy, ‘Sisters.’ Two Jersey girls – and by girls, I mean adult women – return home to empty their childhood bedrooms after their parents sell the house. Before they say their goodbyes, though, they have to throw one last party.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey plan an outrageous, American teen-esque rager that I’m going to assume goes wrong... not before funny shit happens, though. Plus, Cena tells Fey’s character, “My safe word is ‘keep going. Read More

In anticipation of San Diego’s Comic-Con on July 9th, toy company Bif Bang Pow! has created action figures of your favorite superheroes: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
After all they've done for women in comedy—and for the constant LOLs they've given us—it's no question that they deserve representation as action figures, which are defined as "dolls representing a person or fictional character known for vigorous action, such as soldiers or superheros."

“I’m sorry I don’t know more about you!” Ellie Kemper says, baring her perfect teeth in a broad smile as we wrap up our lunch at Little Dom’s, an Italian place near her part-time home in Los Angeles. “That’ll be next time.” But after talking for nearly two hours over bread, salad, and piping hot arancini, she does know about me, because she asked—about where I live, my family, my dog, how I got into writing, how I started at BUST, even what TV shows I like.

It doesn’t get much more adorable than Ellie Kemper as Kimmy Schmidt in Tina Fey’s new Netflix series, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. From her bright flowery outfits to her relentlessly upbeat attitude, Kimmy never fails to lift our spirits and remind us that everything will be okay if we just stay true to ourselves.
And while in true-to-form sitcom fashion, the show has no shortage of silly (and amazingly weird) jokes, it also has a ton of heart. Read More
