WATCH: Tina Fey Strips Down to Her Spanx on Letterman

On what was her last appearance on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, Tina Fey vowed that, after the host steps down, she will never wear a fancy dress on a late-night talk show again. “[It’s] very hard work—I don’t know if you’re aware of the contraptions under here.”

So to mark the occasion, she decided to strip down to her Spanx and give Letterman the dress: “Because this is my last time wearing a fancy dress on a talk show, and conforming to gender norms out of respect for you … I want to give you the dress.”

The front of her Spanx was emblazoned with the words, “BYE DAVID;” the back, #LastDressEver. Check out the clip above.

UPDATE [4/7/2015, 11:17 am]: This event is officially (and sadly for those who didn’t get tickets) sold out.

ORIGINAL: You’ve already binge-watched the entire first season of Tina Fey’s new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, so what’s going to tide you over until the release of season two? This:

The show’s star, Ellie Kemper, is coming to Penn on April 21st to chat about her career and experience on the show, and then open up the floor for audience questions.

But don’t come prepared only with questions about crazy cult hairstyles, hilarious gay roommates and stories about working with Tina Fey.

Tina Fey’s Mean Girls Musical is “60 Percent Written”

Mean-Girls

Tina Fey’s husband Jeff Richmond, who wrote the theme songs to 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, spilled some proverbial beans in a recent interview when he revealed that Fey’s Mean Girls musical is more than half written.

We’ve been writing this [with] Nell Benjamin of Legally Blonde fame—she’s working with us as a lyricist,” he told Yahoo. “We’ve been working for a long time now. I’m going to say it’s like 60 percent written, and it’s being staffed creatively… We are looking to do some actual solid readings coming around this summer. The Kimmy Schmidt thing took a lot more time than we all thought, so it slowed some Mean Girls stuff down.”

When asked to tease a song he dished that there is a number called “Old Blonde Song” that’s sung by Regina’s mother.
