In 1999, Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey were on the cusp of stardom. The former was hired as a Saturday Night Live cast member, while the latter served as a writer for the show. That same year, the two friends created a two-woman show, Dratch & Fey, which ran at both Chicago’s Second City and at the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City. One of their critically acclaimed performances has just made its way online.
The show is a fast-paced tour-de-force in which Dratch becomes Edwina Garth Burnham, woman’s rights pioneer, while Fey takes the role of a modern woman exploring her sexuality. And for fans of the comedians, it’s a treat to witness them in their element before they hit it big.
