MR. WOODCOCK

AMY POEHLER returns this fall for her seventh season on "Saturday Night Live” and her fourth as the co-anchor of "Weekend Update.” Poehler recently completed filming the Universal Pictures comedy Baby Mama, opposite Tina Fey, which is slated for an April 2008 release. Poehler plays Angie Ostrowski, a spirited young woman from South Philly who, hired as a surrogate for infertile businesswoman Kate Holbrook (Fey), shows up at Kate's door with nowhere else to live.

This year Poehler hit the big screen with a starring role in the ice-skating comedy Blades of Glory, alongside Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, and Jon Heder. Poehler also lent her voice to the box office smash Shrek the Third and will star next year opposite Parker Posey in the comedy Spring Breakdown.

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 joined the "SNL” cast from the Upright Citizens Brigade, a sketch/improv troupe originally formed in Chicago. 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. was 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, Fast Track with Zach Braff, 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.”
