Tina Fey Is Sensual, Awkward, And Hilarious On Webshow 7 Minutes In Heaven

Do you know about Seven Minutes In Heaven? It’s a weird little web show hosted by a weird little dude named Mike O’Brien in which he talks, acts out scenes, and attempts to make out with, various famous and funny people.

Do you know about Tina Fey? She’s a popular comedic writer/actor beloved by many for her unabashed feminism and biting wit, although she certainly isn’t perfect and has a long way to go with regards to sex workers. (As both a Tina Fey fan and someone who occasionally takes my clothes of for money, I keep on telling myself that she will get there eventually.)

Anyway, those two things collided this week with the release of a Tina Fey-centric episode of the show. In it, Tina does a one second Sarah Palin impression, talks about making out with John Goodman, and does a truly hilarious bit where she re-imagines Liz Lemon as a character on Breaking Bad. Tina and Mike also do some great acting (the set-up: couple that spends 90% of their time texting other people, 10% of their time being dramatic with each other) and discuss which Cosby they would each get naked in front of. It’s definitely worth a watch for any Tina Fey fans who can’t wait until she hosts the Golden Globes to view a bit of Fey-style absurdity.

    I went through and read all the articles on Tits and Sass about Tina Fey hating sex workers and I have to say, I can’t really agree with that assessment. She might have made some off color jokes about strippers, but it seems she is mostly aiming at women who always use their sexuality to get ahead and men who only take women as useful due to their sexuality. Obviously this could be most clearly seen in sex industry, since men involving themselves with sex workers are pretty much always paying/hiring the women because of their sexuality. I would agree she does appear uninformed, and is probably not great friends with any dancers or prostitutes.

    Anyway, it seems as if the writers at Tits and Sass might have got their skimpy panties in a knot and are having a hard time laughing at themselves.

    Also, entertaining video.

      I don’t know, man. The last part of this one really got me:

      Since when is it cool to make fun of someone’s (real or presumed) sexual trauma? Sex workers get shit on enough as it is without self-described feminists doing it too.

      Yeah, that part I was disturbed by too, however, it also wasn’t funny, which is probably why it is so disturbing. If the joke had been good, I probably would have chuckled, felt a bit offended and carried on with my life.

      Also if you read the entire transcript of her SNL bit and you don’t read it from the view of the author of the article, which I definitely did the first time I read it, you really might not be as offended. With the entire transcript, it seems equally as likely this was said as an attack on the people who use these women who were sexually abused. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, or trying to make it seem this way, but doesn’t it seem slightly more likely that a woman, who has spent the last few years using every opportunity to talk about women’s sexuality not being their only asset, is attacking the people who would take advantage of abused women?

      Still not funny though, stripper/daddy issue jokes are way over, telling them is like beating a dead stripper. (Sorry for that joke).
