Amy Poehler Speaker
Amy Poehler Speaker Profile
Poehler joined the cast of SNL during the 20012002 season, her first episode being the first one produced after the 911 attacks with host Reese Witherspoon, musical guest Alicia Keys and New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as a special guest. Poehler was promoted from featured player to full cast member in her first season on the show, making her only the third person to have ever earned this distinction (after Harry Shearer and Eddie Murphy).
Beginning with the 200405 season, she co-anchored Weekend Update with Tina Fey, replacing the newly departed Jimmy Fallon. In a TV Guide interview, Fey said that with Poehler co-anchoring, there now is double the sexual tension. When Fey left after the 2005-06 season to devote time to the sitcom she created, 30 Rock, Seth Meyers joined Poehler at the anchor desk. Poehler was nominated for a 2008 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress Comedy Series, the first SNL cast member recognized in this category. She was heavily favored to win by many critics, but ultimately lost to Jean Smart. On September 13, 2008, the SNL season premiere opened with Fey and Poehler as Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton doing a joint political campaign spot. Poehler plays Hillary Clinton as a highly accomplished, neurotic politician obsessed with becoming President of the United States.
It was officially announced on September 16, 2008 that Poehler would be leaving in October due to the birth of her child. On the October 25, 2008 episode, it was announced by Weekend Update co-anchor Seth Meyers, who anchored the segment alone, Amy Poehler is not here because she is having a baby, to wild applause from the audience. At the end of Weekend Update, special guest Maya Rudolph and current cast member Kenan Thompson sang a custom rendition of Cant Take My Eyes Off You for Poehler, changing the words: We love you Amy, and we just cant wait to meet your baby! Meyers signed off: For Weekend Update Im Seth Meyers - we love you Amy!
Amy returned to the show on November 3, 2008 during the SNL Presidential Bash 08, hosting as Hillary Clinton. The Bash was pre-taped from bits and pieces shot between September and October. Her return to SNL after pregnancy was on December 6, 2008, where she stayed for two weeks. During Weekend Update, on December 13, she thanked her family, friends, and fans for the continued support and announced that it would be her last show. On April 18 a Saturday Night Live special, The Best of Amy Poehler, aired. Poehler returned for Weekend Update (signing off as: ...and hes Seth Meyers) and joined the chorus for Will Ferrells We All Went Down Together (along with the SNL cast and Tom Hanks, Maya Rudolph, Norm McDonald, Artie Lange, Anne Hathaway, and Green Day) on the SNL season finale with Will Ferrell on May 16, 2009.
Poehler will return to the WU desk this fall with Meyers for two WU Thursday episodes, which lead directly into Parks and Recreation.
