Watch Dratch & Fey’s 1999 sketch show

Sometimes it takes 15 years to rediscover the origins of something you loved.

Over the weekend, we all finally enjoyed the opportunity to turn back the hands of time and jump into the YouTube machine to 1999, when fresh-faced young sketch/improv comedians Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey were about to hit it big on Saturday Night Live. But before that, there was this: Dratch & Fey.

Their two-woman show played Second City and the UCB. It later on would inspire posters and joke references on Fey’s sitcom, 30 Rock.

And here is video from one of their performances. Enjoy.

Roll the clip!
