Don’t be fooled by Amy Poehler’s sweet demeanor and blonde-haired, blue-eyed visage – this comedienne can be ruthlessly bawdy and is a professional when it comes to satirical impersonations. The Saturday Night Live alumna has made appearances in several funny films over the years, including ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘Baby Mama.’ Her comedic talents were fully recognized when she scored the lead role in her very own TV show on NBC. In ‘Parks and Recreation,’ Poehler plays Leslie Knope, the idealistic and slightly manic Deputy Director of the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana. After witnessing Poehler and her close friend Tina Fey hilariously host the Golden Globes AND the Emmys, we’re convinced that the dynamic duo should host ALL the things.
