AMY POEHLER (Eleanor) stars in the new NBC comedy series "Parks and Recreation,” from producers Greg Daniels and Mike Schur ("The Office”). In the series, Poehler portrays Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana.

Poehler continues to produce, write and provide the voice of Bessie in Nickelodeon's hit animated television series "The Mighty B.” She produces and hosts a new online series with ON Networks, "Smart Girls at the Party,” which showcases real girls who are changing the world by being themselves.

After her much buzzed about portrayal of Senator Hillary Clinton during the 2008 presidential election, Poehler completed her eighth and final season of "Saturday Night Live” (and her fifth as the co-anchor of "Weekend Update”). On "SNL,” Poehler boasted an impressive arsenal of outrageous characters, from the hyperactive Caitlin and onelegged reality show contestant "Amber” to a manic host of "Good Morning Meth.”

Poehler also contributed memorable impressions of Kelly Ripa, Avril Lavigne, Sharon Osbourne, Paula Abdul, Sharon Stone and Michael Jackson. She received her first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on "Saturday Night Live.” Due to a change in eligibility, this is an unprecedented nomination making her the first performer in "SNL” history to land a spot in this category.

In 2008, Poehler starred opposite Tina Fey in the hit comedy "Baby Mama.” She starred opposite Parker Posey in "Spring Breakdown,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and lent her voice to "Monsters vs. Aliens.” Last year, she also lent her voice to the animated film "Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!” with Jim Carrey and Steve Carell. Poehler had a starring role in the comedy "Blades of Glory,” alongside Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, and Jon Heder and lent her voice to the box office smash hit "Shrek the Third” as Snow White. Her other feature credits include in the hit comedy "Mean Girls,” "Mr. Woodcock,” "Southland Tales,” "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny,” "The Ex,” "Wet Hot American Summer” and "Envy.”

Poehler joined the "SNL” cast from the Upright Citizens Brigade, a sketch/improv troupe 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. were featured in "A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T.: Improv” an improvised comedy special on Bravo.

Poehler has made memorable appearances on the television shows "Late Night with Conan O'Brien” (as recurring character Stacey, Andy Richter's little sister), "Arrested Development,” "Wonder Showzen,” and "Undeclared.” She also was a voice on "The Simpsons.”
