Writing funny

Published: April 2014


The show business career of theater and English major Tracey Wigfield ’05 began months after her graduation from Boston College with a year as a page for the Late Show with David Letterman (the job, she recalls, involved repeating, “The ladies’ room is that way”). Today she is a writer for The Mindy Project, after working her way up from writer’s assistant to producer on the series 30 Rock, which aired its final episode (“Last Lunch”) on January 31, 2013. In September, the episode earned Wigfield and comedian Tina Fey a shared Emmy for best writing in a comedy series.

Wigfield took questions from students on April 7, 2014, in Devlin 008.
