AmyPoehler is an American {{film}} and [[LiveActionTV television]] actress best known for being a cast member on Comedy Central's ''Upright Citizens Brigade'' and NBC's ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''. Poehler co-founded TheUprightCitizensBrigade, an improv group that went on to have their own ComedyCentral sketch series and open theaters and training centers on both coasts. She currently portrays the character of Leslie Knope on ''Series/ParksAndRecreation''. She also co-starred in the 2008 film ''BabyMama'' with her former [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Weekend Update]] co-anchor TinaFey. On ''SNL'', her most notable recurring characters were Kaitlin (a hyperactive kid who pesters her older brother Rick [played by Horatio Sanz]), Nettie Bo Dance (wife of Percy Bo Dance [Darrell Hammond] from ''Appalachian Emergency Room''), Sally Needler (one half of The Couple Who Should Be Divorced [her husband, Dan, was played by SethMeyers]), Amber (a one-legged hypoglycemic with a flatuence problem), and Deidre Nicks (one of the hosts of ''The Cougar Den'', a talk show about older women who date younger men). Poehler's most popular celebrity impressions include Hillary Clinton, Avril Lavigne, Creator/DakotaFanning, Nancy Grace, Sharon Stone, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Rosie Perez.

Poehler was married to [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Will Arnett]], making them one of Hollywood's most ridiculously awesome couples, but they went through a divorce in 2012, which was apparently amicable. She's also an outspoken feminist who produces a web series called ''Smart Girls at the Party,'' about young women who are "changing the world by being themselves".
