Tina Fey and Steve Martin fill the Nokia Theatre

fey-martin-ltla.jpgThere were something like 5,000 people at the Nokia on Tuesday night to watch Tina Fey and Steve Martin mix and match wits. And after a few hiccups — a lot of people still outside in line at the 8 o'clock call time, and Fey deciding to just hold her lav mic because of all the noise it was picking up — the crowd left happy and convinced more than ever of the two performers' genius. There must have been hundreds in line to get Fey's autograph on "Bossypants" when I left, and even pregnant she hung in and signed. The event put on by Live Talks L.A. benefited KPCC and KCET. Carolyn Kellogg of the L.A. Times posted a quick account at Jacket Copy.
