I’m pretty sure it’s every woman’s dream to go on a date with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  Or at least it was mine.

So there I was, at the Beacon Theater in New York City, attending an event to benefit autism called Night of Too Many Stars. Hosted by Jon Stewart, the evening featured Ben Stiller, Seth Rogen, Stephen Colbert, Harvey Keitel, Carly Rae Jepsen, Katy Perry, Sting, and many more, including, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Jon Stewart announced that one of the live auction items was to “spend a date night as the new best friend of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.” The next thing I knew, the bidding began and I raised my hand high in the air.  Cut to minutes later, I found myself onstage at the Beacon Theater—with another winning bidder and my new best friends Tina and Amy!  After an intimate bonding experience in front of 3,000 audience members, we were whisked outside for a photo shoot that was later shown on a jumbo screen at the theater.

1.  They have a special language
You know how most best friends can complete each other’s sentences or know how the other is feeling just by a glance?  Well, Tina and Amy have that, and more!  It’s almost like they relate on a psychic level.  When we were backstage, they decided to come up with a skit that would involve us, only they didn’t want us to know what they were planning. They started communicating in what seemed like a combination of gibberish and charades. Even though we were seated right next to them, we had no idea what they were up to.  Speaking very quickly, gesturing wildly, and giggling in agreement, Tina and Amy managed to create a spectacular skit in only minutes.

2.  They are who you think they are
If you already guessed from their movies and interviews that Tina and Amy are fabulous, smart, funny women, then you’re right.  These women are the real thing.  Some actors just “act” like they’re nice, when they’re really not.  A producer friend of mine interviews celebrities and shares horror stories of how some actresses are all “smiling and nice” when the cameras are on and all “bitchy and diva-esque” once the cameras are off.  Tina and Amy could not have been nicer during the time we spent together.  They not only treated us with love and respect, but they also treated the cameraman, crew and all of the fans who crowded around to watch us during the photo shoot with the same love and respect.
