David Letterman had Tina Fey as a guest on his late night talk show Wednesday and against all "legal counsel" he aired the surveillance tape showing a burglary in her new office.
After having wrapped with 30 Rock, the 43-year-old writer-actor recently moved into a new office in Manhattan with a team of about five people. On the Late Show with David Letterman she revealed that her office was burglarized and that the surveillance cameras captured the act on tape.
Letterman decided to show the office tape, which features the taking a computer out of the office in a manila envelope ("stuffed in a folder"). Fey believes the burglar was "one of the moving guys." The face of the burglar was blurred out of the video.
"We're gonna find this guy," she said before the tape was aired.
Fey also claimed that the stolen computer had all her ideas and some of her unfinished jokes in it.
"Then of course we went to the police and it was helpful, but it is hard, New York's a big city, and you're like, 'some guy stole my jokes!'" she added. "If you know blue shirt guy, or if blue shirt guy is watching..."

Fey is already busy working on new television projects and one of her new comedies recently got a series commitment from FOX. The multi-camera comedy will be set in a women's college that begins accepting men for the first time in history.
It was the second deal for Fey's production company, Little Stranger, this week. The comedienne, writer and actor also sold a single camera comedy to NBC being written by former 30 Rock scribe and producer Colleen McGuiness. The comedy will be co-produced by Fey and Carlock. Set in Fire Island, N.Y. it is about a young lady who searches to reconnect with her father, and makes new friends and family as she begins to create a home for herself.
