Tina Fey and Jerry Seinfeld--Improv and Stand-up Collide...!

Two TITANS will clash tonight on NBC!!

That's right--Fey and Seinfeld!

Two schools of thought (on comedy) become one tonight on television. And I'm going to be right there, glued to my seat. My two favorite people in comedy on TV, on one channel. (I don't even have to flip back and forth between stations to catch all the comedy goodness!)

One Rock... Two Rock... 30 Rock...

Ok..ok... maybe I'm over-hyping it. But they're both awesome in their own right. They both have cool, "before they made it" stories.

Tina Fey has her background in Second City in Chicago. She was so motivated and ready for the Improv and Sketch world that she up and left Pennsylvania for the big city.

Seinfeld didn't to travel too far for his training ground--just a hop, skip, and jump over the Long Island Expressway.

Another cool celebrity factoid: Seinfeld and Alec Baldwin, a main character on 30 Rock, both grew up in the same town. (Man, Hollywood is small!!!) They weren't exactly friends, however Seinfeld did know Baldwin's father who was a football coach at Seinfeld's high school.

So let's review: What happens at 8:30pm (EST) tonight on NBC?

Answer: Two powerhouse comedians go head to head.

Tonight 30 Rock Premiere

Spoiler warning: If you really can't wait until 8:30 tonight, then I can offer you this link, but don't say I didn't warn you!

And Jerry has even a shameless plug for his new movie, Bee Movie. And I can only respond, in Seinfeld's own voice, we get it,we get it already!


Did you enjoy this post? Buy me a warm cup of joe.

I had a great time seeing 30 Rock back on tv but Jerry didn't quite do it for me. I think he couldn't figure out if he was playing Jerry or Jerry, if you know what I mean.

And you can catch 30 Rock online at

Which is perfect for us without TiVo or DVR.

Or motivation, talent, drive, vision, income, self esteem, moxy, sense of irony. Why am I doing this to myself?

Yeah, I'm kind'a with Matt on this one, though I don't lay it so much on Seinfeld as I do the network, which, of course, is one of the points of 30 rock.

Loved watching JS come up with all new material on his movie, thugh it did leave me wanting something else....
Is there a new Bill Cosby dvd out there, yet?
I mean, two hours of new stuff from Cosby would be worth looking at for days and days.

(daze and daze?)

I didn't catch the NBC thing, but I did get to watch/listen while I work a whole string of back-to-back Seinfeld reruns this afternoon. I'm not near so disappointed now.
