Renowned as "a brilliantly inventive sketch comedian” (Entertainment Weekly, 11/19/05), Poehler boasts an impressive arsenal of outrageous characters, from the hyperactive Caitlin and one-legged reality show contestant Amber to a manic host of "Good Morning Meth.” Poehler has also contributed memorable impressions of Kelly Ripa, Avril Lavigne, Sharon Osbourne, Paula Abdul, Senator Hillary Clinton, Sharon Stone and Michael Jackson.

Poehler and the U.C.B. relocated to New York, where they had a sketch show on Comedy Central for three seasons on which she was both a writer and performer. In addition, they opened a theater currently regarded as the premiere sketch/improv comedy venue in New York City. Poehler and the U.C.B. were featured in "A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T.: Improv,” an improvised comedy special on Bravo.

Other feature credits include in the hit comedy "Mean Girls,” opposite Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey; "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny,” with Jack Black; "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo”; "Wet Hot American Summer”; and "Envy.”

Poehler has made memorable appearances on television, ranging from "Late Night with Conan O'Brien” (as recurring character Stacey, Andy Richter's little sister), "Arrested Development” (playing the wife to real-life husband Will Arnett), "Wonder Showzen” and "Undeclared.” She also was a voice on "O'Grady” and "The Simpsons.”
