The wildly successful actress, comedian, writer, and producer is one of the greatest of our generation, yet she started out just like us, working part-time jobs to make ends meet. In fact, the actress wrote in her book, Bossypants, that her life-changing moment was getting a job that barely paid anything. After graduating from the University of Virginia, Fey landed a gig at an improv and sketch comedy theater called The Second City in Chicago. "I moved to Chicago in 1992 to study improv and it was everything I wanted it to be," she writes. "It was like a cult. People ate, slept, and definitely drank improv. They worked at crappy day jobs just to hand over their money for improv classes." Fey toured the country with this company and was paid just $75 a show and $25 per diem, which wasn't always a guarantee either.

"Of course, sometimes you'd have a show in Kansas, so you'd have to ride in the van for two days to get to your seventy-five-dollar gig," she writes. "It wasn't lucrative, but it was show business!" And despite the pay, Fey told NBC News that Second City was "the best job I ever had." By age 27, she was eventually hired at Saturday Night Live and promoted to head writer just two years later, a female first.
