MEAN GIRLS Writer & Comedy Legend Tina Fey Returns to SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE This May

Tina Fey returns to "SNL" for the sixth time as host for the season finale on May 19. She recently wrote the hit Broadway musical adaptation of "Mean Girls" based off of her original screenplay, currently playing at the August Wilson Theater.

Mean Girls opens on Broadway tonight, April 8 at the August Wilson Theatre (245 West 52nd Street). The musical features a book by nine-time Emmy Award winner Tina Fey, based on her screenplay for the film, music by three-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond, and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin. Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs.

Best known as the mind being 30 Rock, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and her iconic SNL personas, Tina Fey's career shows no sign of slowing down. The actress/comedian has received nine Primetime Emmy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, five Screen Actors Guild Awards, and seven Writers Guild of America Awards. In 2008, the Associated Press gave Fey the AP Entertainer of the Year award for her Sarah Palin impression on SNL. In 2010, Fey was awarded THE Mark Twain PRIZE for American Humor, becoming the youngest-ever recipient of the award.

Saturday Night Live (SNL) is an American late-night live television variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol. The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's comedy sketches, which parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest, who usually delivers an opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast as with featured performances by a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!", properly beginning the show.
