It’s Like 1996 Again, But With Alec Baldwin and Commercials

I am just amazed at how great a comedy 30 Rock is. It’s really fun to watch Tina Fey, Scott Adsit, Jack McBrayer and Jason Sudeikis. When I was in the Second City training center, Fey and Adsit were on the stage. They were electric. It was so fun to watch every night after class. See, these people are all Chicago improvisers who have made it to the small screen and that’s why I am supposed to take joy out of watching it. But last night I realized that I genuinely like these performers and my joy isn’t as much “I’m so glad they made it”. In this business, you get really caught up on “making it” or feeling good (or bad) about the comedian because they made it. But with this crew, I am a fan. They have been entertaining me for 10 years + and watching them yesterday on TV, I realized how much fun it is to watch them again. It’s like 1996 again, but with Alec Baldwin and commercials.
