DR. SEUSS' HORTON HEARS A WHO!
AMY POEHLER (Sally O’Malley) is in her seventh season as a cast member of
“Saturday Night Live” (and her fourth as the co-anchor of “Weekend Update,”). Poehler
stars in the Warner Bros. comedy “Spring Breakdown” opposite Parker Posey, and the
Universal Pictures comedy “Baby Mama” opposite Tina Fey. Poehler is producing,
writing and providing the voice in the new Nickelodeon animated television series
“Mighty B” about the exploits of a ten-year-old Honeybee scout.
Last year, Poehler had a starring role in the ice-skating comedy “Blades of
Glory,” alongside Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, and Jon Heder. She also lent her voice to the
box office smash hit “Shrek the Third” as Snow White.
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 “Mean Girls,” “Mr. Woodcock,” “Southland Tales,”
“Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny,” “The Ex,” “Wet Hot American Summer” and
Poehler has made memorable appearances on “Late Night with Conan O'Brien,”
