Early lifeEdit

Poehler was born on September 16, 1971,[1][2] in Newton, Massachusetts, to school teachers Eileen and William Poehler.[3][4] Eileen was active in feminism in the 1970s, something that inspired Poehler's own sense of confidence.[5][6] Poehler credits her father with encouraging her to break social protocol and take risks.[5] She has one younger brother, Greg, who is a producer and actor.[7][5] Poehler is of Irish, German, Portuguese, and English descent with her Irish roots originating from County Cork.[4] She was raised as a Catholic.[8]

Poehler grew up in nearby Burlington, Massachusetts, which Poehler describes as a blue-collar town.[3][5] Her favorite performers included sketch-comedians Carol Burnett, Gilda Radner, and Catherine O'Hara.[9] When she was 10 years old, Poehler played Dorothy in her school's production of The Wizard Of Oz.[10] The experience inspired Poehler's love of performing.[10][11] Poehler continued acting in school plays at Burlington High School. She also participated in other activities during her time in high school including Student Council, soccer and softball. After graduating from high school in 1989, she enrolled at Boston College.[12] During college, Poehler became a member of the improv comedy troupe My Mother's Fleabag.[3] She graduated from Boston College with a bachelor's degree in media and communications in 1993.[13]

CareerEdit

Improv and Upright Citizens BrigadeEdit

Poehler's time studying improv in college inspired her to pursue comedy professionally.[14] After graduating from college, she moved to Chicago where she took her first improv class taught by Charna Halpern at ImprovOlympic.[15] Early on, Poehler worked as a waitress and at other small jobs to earn money.[14] Through ImprovOlympic, Poehler learned from Del Close and she was introduced to friend and frequent collaborator Tina Fey.[15][16] Poehler and Fey joined a Second City touring company at the same time, and Poehler went on to join one of Second City's main companies where Fey was her eventual replacement.[16]

The Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) formed as a sketch and improv group in Chicago in 1991.[17][18] Early members included Horatio Sanz, Adam McKay, Ian Roberts, Neil Flynn and Matt Besser, although membership was not static.[17][18][19] McKay left the fledgling group in 1995, and Poehler became his replacement.[17][18] In 1996, a core group of four UCB members, Poehler, Besser, Roberts, and Matt Walsh moved to New York City.[19][20][21] The "UCB Four" began performing shows at small venues around the city which evolved into four regular live shows after a few months.[17] To earn money outside of the shows, UCB taught improv classes.[17] Poehler also started making appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, often playing her recurring role as Andy Richter's little sister, Stacy.[8][22]

In 1998, Comedy Central debuted UCB's eponymous half-hour sketch comedy series.[17] During the show's second season, the group founded an improv theater/training center in New York City on W. 22nd Street, occupying the space of a former strip club.[17] The UCB Theatre held shows seven nights a week in addition to offering classes in sketch comedy writing and improv.[8] In the summer of 2000, Comedy Central canceled the Upright Citizens Brigade program after its third season,[19] though the UCB Theatre continued to operate.[23] Poehler, Besser, Roberts, and Walsh are considered the founders of UCB and have been credited with popularizing long-form improv in New York.[17][24][25] By 2011, UCB had two theaters in New York and a theater in Los Angeles with 8,000 students taking classes per year.[17]

TelevisionEdit

Saturday Night LiveEdit

Cast memberEdit

Poehler joined the cast of Saturday Night Live (SNL) at the start of the 2001–2002 season after Tina Fey had tried to recruit her for SNL for years.[16] Poehler made her debut in the first episode produced after the 9/11 attacks. She was promoted from featured player to full cast member in her first season on the show, making her the second cast member,[a] and first woman, to earn this distinction.[26][27] Poehler's recurring characters included hyperactive 10-year old Kaitlyn, one-legged reality show contestant Amber, and Bronx Beat talk show co-host Betty Caruso.[19][28] In addition to her original characters, Poehler performed a number of impressions including: Hillary Clinton, Dakota Fanning, Avril Lavigne, Michael Jackson, Kim Jong-Il, Nancy Grace, Kelly Ripa, Katie Couric, Sharon Stone, Sharon Osbourne, Julia Roberts, Britney Spears, Madonna, Paula Abdul, Dolly Parton, Dennis Kucinich, Ann Coulter, Pamela Anderson, Christian Siriano, Rosie Perez, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Martha Stewart, Anna Nicole Smith, Paula Zahn, Norah O'Donnell, and Farrah Fawcett.[19][28]

Beginning with the 2004–2005 season, she co-anchored Weekend Update with Tina Fey, replacing Jimmy Fallon. Fey and Poehler became the first female co-anchors of the longtime SNL staple.[16] Poehler, Rudolph, and Fey were among the show's biggest stars that season and contributed to a shift in the show to featuring more female driven sketches.[19][27][29] When Fey left after the 2005–2006 season to devote time to the sitcom she created, 30 Rock, Seth Meyers joined Poehler at the Weekend-Update anchor desk. In 2008, Poehler was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series,[30] the first year SNL cast members were eligible for the category.[31]

The SNL premiere of the 2008–2009 season opened with Fey and Poehler as Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, respectively, discussing sexism in political campaigning.[32][33] The sketch, which Poehler co-wrote with Meyers, became the biggest viral video of the year.[32][34] Days after the season premiere, NBC announced Poehler, pregnant with her first child, would not return after her upcoming maternity leave.[35] On the October 25th episode, Meyers announced during Weekend Update that Poehler was in labor. At the end of Weekend Update, special guest Maya Rudolph and cast member Kenan Thompson sang a custom rendition of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" for Poehler.[36] Poehler had been rehearsing for that week's show until the day before the birth.[36]

After giving birth, Poehler appeared during a pre-taped "SNL Presidential Bash '08" prime time special on November 3.[37][38] Despite the prior announcement that Poehler would not return after her maternity leave, she came back for two more live episodes.[39][40] During the December 13 Weekend Update, Poehler announced that it was her last show.[40] Saturday Night Live aired a special, "The Best of Amy Poehler," in April 2009.[41] For the 2008–2009 season finale, Poehler returned to co-host Weekend Update and joined host Will Ferrell's version of the Billy Joel song "Goodnight Saigon."[42][43]

Off camera, Poehler was a prolific writer. She often collaborated with writer Emily Spivey.[44] Meyers described Poehler as "the most generous laugher" during sketch read throughs.[5] Poehler would also take it upon herself to welcome guest hosts during rehearsals and try to make them feel comfortable during their stint on SNL.[5]

Guest appearancesEdit

Although she had already left SNL, Poehler joined Meyers in September 2009 for two episodes of Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday, which aired in prime time and led directly into Parks and Recreation.[45][46] She returned to SNL along with other past female cast members for a special Mother's Day episode on May 8, 2010, hosted by Betty White.[47][48] Poehler returned again to host the 2010–2011 season premiere with musical guest Katy Perry.[49] She participated in another SNL prime time special, The Women of SNL in November of that year.[50] Poehler also returned sporadically for appearances on Weekend Update with Meyers, as well as in sketches when Jimmy Fallon (2011) and Maya Rudolph (2012) hosted.[51][52]

In 2015, during the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special, she returned to anchor Weekend Update, this time with Tina Fey and Jane Curtin.[53]

Parks and RecreationEdit

Following the success of The Office, NBC ordered a new series from producers Greg Daniels and Michael Schur.[54] In July 2008, Variety reported that Poehler was in final negotiations to star in the still untitled series from Daniels and Schur.[55] Poehler and Schur were friends from their time together at SNL where Schur worked as a writer.[56] Signing Poehler, who was pregnant with her first child, meant the new series would have to forgo a promised post-Super Bowl debut and cut its first season short, but Daniels and Schur chose to push back the series for Poehler.[56][57] On July 21, 2008, NBC announced Poehler's new series, Parks and Recreation, saying the project would not be a direct spin-off of The Office, as previously speculated.[54]

Parks and Recreation premiered on NBC on April 9, 2009, at 8:30 pm between two episodes of The Office.[58][59] An ensemble cast including Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Paul Schneider, and Nick Offerman joined Poehler.[56] Poehler played Deputy Director of the Parks Department, Leslie Knope, in the fictional city of Pawnee, Indiana. After the first season had received a mixed reception, the show's second season received more positive reviews.[60] One key change between seasons one and two was to distinguish the character of Leslie from Michael Scott, the central character of The Office.[56][60] Parks decidedly down-played Leslie's ditziness from the first season and emphasized her intelligence, work ethic and earnest nature instead.[56][60] A second-season episode, Galentine's Day, included a new holiday Leslie created celebrating female friendship on February 13. Galentine's Day has since transcended the show with real-life celebrations.[61][62] Adam Scott and Rob Lowe joined the show at the end of the second season, with Scott playing Leslie's eventual love interest, Ben.[63] At the end of filming the second season, Poehler was once again pregnant. The show began producing the first six episodes of season three without a break to accommodate her pregnancy.[63][64][65] Poehler was nominated again for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy in 2011.[66] That same year, the show won a Peabody Award for "developing a hilarious venue to explore the good side of American democracy in an age when that side is so rarely on display."[67]

By season five, the show was a success with critics, but its future was still uncertain. Two episodes were written that could serve as series finales if it was cancelled, including the mid-season episode where Leslie and Ben get married.[68] The show was ultimately renewed for a sixth season in May 2013.[69] Poehler was nominated for an Emmy Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy in 2013 for her work in season five. Season six included the show's 100th episode, "Second Chunce", co-written by Poehler and Schur.[70] In 2014, she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series – Comedy at the 71st Golden Globe Awards, which she co-hosted with Tina Fey.[71] In the middle of season six, Poehler and Schur decided that it felt like the right time to plan the end of the show. They met with representatives from NBC, who agreed. The show was renewed for a final thirteen-episode season.[68] Poehler and Schur co-wrote the final episode of the series, "One Last Ride", which aired on February 24, 2015.[63]

In addition to starring on Parks and Recreation, Poehler was also a producer.[72] Behind the scenes, Poehler started a tradition of inviting the show cast and crew to a group dinner the last night of any location shoot.[5] Poehler would start impromptu dance parties in the makeup trailer on set.[73] Poehler wrote several episodes throughout the series, starting with the season two episode "Telethon".[74][75] Other episodes she penned include "The Fight" (season three),[75] "The Debate" (season four),[76] "Second Chunce" (season five) and the finale "One Last Ride". Producer Dan Goor praised Poehler's writing as "exceptionally good" and theorized, "[i]f Amy Poehler submitted a blind script to any staff, she would be hired."[77] Poehler's writing of "The Debate" was recognized with nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and the Writers Guild of America Award for Television: Episodic Comedy.[30][78] In addition to writing "The Debate," Poehler also directed the episode.[76] Additionally, she directed the episodes "Article Two" (season five)[79] and "Gryzzlbox" (season seven).[80]

HostEdit

Poehler and Fey co-hosted the Golden Globe Awards ceremony for the first time in 2013. The program was watched by 20 million viewers, a 17 percent increase over the previous year.[16] The pair co-hosted again in 2014 as part of a three-year contract.[81][82] Gilbert Cruz, of the Vulture website, wrote: "They killed it last year with their opening monologue and they did so again this year."[83] The 2014 show garnered its highest ratings in ten years.[71]

Before the 2015 Golden Globes, Poehler confirmed it would likely be the last time she and Fey hosted.[81] Rolling Stone magazine wrote afterward that the pair "left no superstar unscathed during their riotous opening monologue" in which they "casually roasted the assembled masses".[84] At the 2020 Television Critics Association winter press tour, NBC announced Poehler and Fey would host the Golden Globes again in 2021.[85]

In March 2017, NBC ordered to series a Poehler-produced crafting series, then-titled The Handmade Project.[86] The show, retitled Making It, debuted on NBC in July 2018 with Poehler and her Parks and Recreation co-star Nick Offerman as co-hosts.[87] The debut episode tied for the highest-rated premiere of summer 2018 and earned Poehler and Offerman a Primetime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program.[88][89] The show returned for a second season which aired in December 2019.[89] NBC has picked up Making It for a third season.[85]

FilmEdit

In 1999, Poehler had a small role in the movie Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo.[90] The following year, she was cast in the film Wet Hot American Summer.[91] Wet Hot American Summer was the first film from David Wain, who cast Poehler based on her work with Upright Citizen's Brigade.[91] The film, which cost only $1.8 million to make, was not a success initially when it was released in 2001. It gained a following after its release on DVD.[91] Poehler also appeared in the 2004 movie Mean Girls, written by Tina Fey.[92] Fey wrote the role of self-described "cool mom" with Poehler in mind, however Fey and director Mike Waters had to push for Poehler's casting.[92][93] The studio had been wary of casting too many SNL cast members and were concerned that Poehler was too young to play the mother of Rachel McAdams, who is only seven years younger than her. Poehler filmed the role in Toronto during the week while filming SNL.[92] The movie grossed $129 million at the box office worldwide and saw its popularity continue to rise after its release on DVD.[94]

ProducerEdit

In 2001 Poehler set up her own production company called Paper Kite Productions,[5][72] which is part of Universal Television. As of 2019, the production company's staff is all female.

Poehler co-created, produced, and starred in an animated series for Nickelodeon titled The Mighty B!, about Bessie Higgenbottom, a "sweet, merit-badge-obsessed girl scout".[109][110] The character of Bessie was inspired by a character Poehler performed doing improv.[111] Season one averaged 3.1 million viewers and ranked as one of the top five animated programs in television. Nickelodeon renewed the show for a second season.[112] In 2009 and 2010, Poehler earned Daytime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program.[113][114]

Poehler, along with Natasha Lyonne and Leslye Headland, created and executive produced the comedy-drama series Russian Doll for Netflix.[123][124] The series premiered on February 1, 2019.[125] The genesis of the series started seven years earlier after Poehler remarked Lyonne was always "the oldest girl in the world."[124] Poehler and Lyonne liked the idea of a female character being many things at once, but joked the only way to have a female character that complex would be to re-do the part repeatedly.[123] The idea evolved into the series where Lyonne's character dies repeatedly on her 36th birthday.[123] Poehler, Lyonne, and Headland put together an all-female team of writers and directors.[123][126] The series debuted on Netflix with a 100% fresh rating on the ratings aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes.[124]

Topics covered in the book include body image, parenthood, and learning about the limitations of physical appearance.[143] The book debuted at number one on The New York Times Best-Seller list.[2]

In 2011, Poehler was included on Time's "100 most influential people in the world".[144] She also delivered the Class Day address to Harvard University's class of 2011.[145] The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences invited Poehler to become a member as part of its 2017 class.[146]
